Description of problem:VMware 3.1.4 is very slow and cpu is pegged at 100% loading on both processors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible:everytime vmware is launched
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: This just started with the new kernel 40.4. All was good before this up(down)grade.
Are you using the vmware modules? If so, I doubt they know what 2.6.40 is.
There is a patch available for kernel 39 that compiled and runs vmware on 40-4. See comment #4 in bug 728038 to view how vmware was rebuilt.
I have installed the latest kerner 188.8.131.52 and then recompiled WMware. CPU usage time appears to have settled back into an acceptable range when running Windows using VMware on this kernel.
Please close this bug.
