Unhappy Hardware graphics acceleration is not availabe. No 3D support available from the host


I am using VMware on Fedora 18 64bit. Guest system is Windows 7. But every time I run the guest OS, I get the following:

Hardware graphics acceleration is not available.
As a result, this virtual machine may experience very low graphics performance. Follow the instructions provided by your graphics card vendor or Linux distribution in order to update your computer's OpenGL drivers.

And

No 3D support available from the host.
The 3D features of the virtual machine will be disabled.

Can someone help me? I am sure my host OS supports 3D as I can play MC and run Blender.

It would help if you actually tell us which garphics hardware you are using and which driver are installed.

Hi. I prefer https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html . . . It's free to try and see if it works there? Best wishes and have fun.

You need to run the latest version of Fedora to get proper support.

You may also need to install the appropriate drivers for your video hardware. I see you have actually two VGA devices...

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Venus XT [Radeon HD 8870M] and Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)

You may need to install the fglrx AMD OEM driver if this is the 3D graphics processor.

I said already, yesterday I updated Fedora to the latest version (20). And after that vmware is not working. I've tried fully reinstalling vmware with no luck. You can see the error in my previous post.

P. S. Ok, I will try out VirtualBox

If you don't use the AMD driver for your video card it is likely that you will have the same problems with other virtualization solutions. I would give that a try first.

There should be packages in the distro for this driver. Check for fglrx and amdcccle packages. Once installed there should be a kernel module (fglrx) and the libGL.so library will be AMDs version. If you wish to use other drivers like radeon or an Nvidia card you will have to undo the libGL.so swappage. Which is best done by distro supplied means.
