After installing xorg-x11-server 1.7.1-12 from bug 533620
I have some problems in VMwareWorkstation-5.5.9.
When virtual machine starting:
A language-specific mapping from X keysyms to machine scancodes will be used,
based on the detected keyboard type of "us101", because you are not using an
XFree86 server running on the local machine.
However, this program's language-specific mapping may not be correct for your
keyboard in all the details, because X keyboard mappings vary.
You can override specific key mappings in the virtual-machine configuration.
When switching virtual machine to full screen mode:
Unable to find an appropriate host video mode.
Adding the guest mode to the 'display' subsection of the 'screen' section of
your /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restarting X is likely to
Failed to switch to full screen SVGA mode.
don't have problems with vmware.

The same problem with xorg-x11-server-1.7.3-1.fc12
Does it work without the nvidia binary driver?
ajax, reassigning to you, changes between 1.7.1-7 and 1.7.1-12 are your metier
With vesa driver and xorg-x11-server-1.7.3 vmware have the same problems as with nvidia driver.
With xorg-x11-server-1.7.1-7.fc12.2.rex no problems in vmware both with vesa and nvidia drivers.
The problem still is in xorg-x11-server-1.7.4-1.fc12
At first this problem appears in xorg-x11-server-1.7.1-10.fc12 where --with-vendor-name="Fedora Project" was added.
I rebuild xorg-x11-server-1.7.4-1.fc12 without --with-vendor-name="Fedora Project"
Now vmware can detect xorg server.
The problem still persist with latest updates to Fedora 12 but there is a workaround against this problem.
Add the following line to ~/.vmware/preferences
xinfo.forceXFree86 = "TRUE"
This overrides vmware detection of xorg and keys work as expected.
I have tested this with vmware server 1.0.8 and 1.0.10 and according to the docs, this should work with other vmware products as well.
Just to make it clear -- full screen works as well when setting xinfo.forceXFree86 = "TRUE"

I confirm that fullscreen mode with this settig works for me too.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
