VMWare on Slackware Current: massive display corruption
I used to run VMWare on Slackware current, well, not totally current: with XOrg 6.8.1, kernel 2.6.9, NVidia-drivers 6229, and that went ok.
Now I reinstalled with Slack 10.1, upgraded to current (xorg 6.8.2, kernel 2.6.10, NVidia-drivers 6229). Installed VMWare (both 4.5 and 5 Beta, latest version) and whenever I run it there's massive display corruption both inside and outside of the VMWare-window: there's two vertical purple bars on the right of the screen, and it looks like the color palette drops down to 256 colors for parts on the screen. Within the VMWare-screen there's less corruption but there are still some colors all over the place there that shouldn't be there. The corruption is on other desktops as well. Restarting the X-server makes it ok again. I tried downgrading XOrg to 6.8.1 and this didn't help, in fact it only made it worse ...
Anyone know what's going on?
