Description Richard de Vroede 2002-12-24 15:16:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
After installing kernel 2.4.18-18.7.x on a RedHat 7.3 system, networking on
VMware 3.1 was broken. This applies to both Bridged networking and NAT networking. 
Some networking works (ping, internet browsing) others do not (windows
browselist, pptp).

Not affected: kernel <= 2.4.18-10
Affected: kernel = 2.4.18-18.7.x, kernel = 2.4.18-19.7.x

I only tested with i686 kernels. After rolling back the kernel to 2.4.18-10,
networking worked again.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install VMWare
2. Install a Guest OS (I tested W98 and W2k)
3. Upgrade to kernel 2.4.18-18.7.x, reboot
4. Run vmware-config.pl
5. Start VMWare with Guest OS: Networking is broken.
6. Downgrade to kernel 2.4.18-10, reboot
7. Run vmware-config.pl
8. Start VMWare with Guest OS: Networking works.
9. Repeated 1 to 8 multiple times to verify.
10. Upgraded to kernel 2.4.18-19.7.x, reboot
11. Run vmware-config.pl
12. Start VMWare with Guest OS: Networking is broken.


Additional info:

When VMware is closed, this is the output:

VMware PANIC: (scsi0:0) NOT_IMPLEMENTED F(831):654
VMware PANIC: (VMX) AIO: NOT_IMPLEMENTED F(831):654
VMware PANIC: (ide1:0) NOT_IMPLEMENTED F(831):654
VMware PANIC: (VMX) AIO: NOT_IMPLEMENTED F(831):654
Panic loop

Perhaps that's something for VMWare to fix.
