Description Michael Monreal 2008-04-28 12:34:43 EDT
If I boot Fedora9Pre (update to the latest development version) and change the
video card to vmware, the next time x tries to start it just tries to set a mode
in a loop forever and never manages to get it.

I noticed there have been quite a few vmware vga related reports in the last few
month but they all seem to be resolved, so I assume this should work?

Running the VM on KVM r66 btw.

This is what I see with the vmware driver... flashing up all the time.
