Vmware freezes my system when Loading Virtual Machine
My problem is that, once I have installed vmware 4 workstation on my redhat 9 system (kernel : 2.4.20-20.9smp), and I have configured it, every thing looks fine. Until I try to "Power on" a virtual machine. The whole system freezes completely and then all that is left to do is a cold reboot.
When I look into the logs (/var/log/messages), the only relevant message that I can see is:
Nov 1 15:11:07 localhost kernel: application bug: vmware(5185) has SIGCHLD set
to SIG_IGN but calls wait().
I have absolutely no idea what does that mean so I was hoping that someone could give me a clue of what is going on.
Is it fixeable?
