    VMware Workstation 11  hangs and hiccups : Windows 7 guest hosted by Linux Mint 17 KDE Nvidia 346.22 -x64

    matthewls Hot Shot

      The hangs in the kde interface turns out to be a problem,with kwin not vmware . I've found workarounds via ZGoogle, but haven't tested sufficiently to know if they solve the problem.

       

      So far so good (1 day).

      The fixes are workarounds for bugs https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kde-workspace/+bug/1394391reported in Ubuntu and KDE

      Setting triple buffering on in xorg.conf and exporting __GL_YIELD="USLEEP" before kwin launches seem to work.

       

      xorg.conf

      Section "Device"

      ...

      Option "TripleBuffer" "True"

      ...

      EndSection

       

       

      ~.kde/Autostart

      # /bin/sh

      export __GL_YIELD="USLEEP"

      kwin --replace &
