Running VMWare Player 15.0.2 on a Kubuntu 18.04 LTS 64Bit Linux host with a Windows 10 Pro 64Bit guest.
The Linux host is constantly freezing when the Windows 10 guest is running?
How do I solve the above issue?
Did some research...
Typing below in terminal seems to fix the freezes:
echo never | sudo tee /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/defrag
echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/khugepaged/defrag
Perhaps the above does not survive a reboot?
I found something else:
In terminal type:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
in quote after "quiet splash"
then save and exit
then in terminal type:
(and then reboot)
Haven't tested thoroughly but am hoping it solves the issue...
Have you found a solution ? I have the exact same problem.
Running a Windows 10 VM on a Linux Mint 20 host gets me here as well.
It appends when I shutdown or restart the Virtual Machine most of the time.
Read somewhere it's a problem with nvme hard drives. Got some "Kernel Bug CPU 4 PID XXX : /fs/ext4/..."
When it "freezes" I can Ctrl + Alt +F1 to go to console mode and log as root but when I try to log as my local user (su - myuser) the console hangs (my home directory is on the same nvme drive as the vmdk files of the virtual machine).
My hardware :
MB : MSI X570 Gaming Plus
CPU : Ryzen 5 3600
GPU : MSI NVIDIA 2080 GTX
nvme1 : Force MP510 240Go (linux system)
nvme2 : Samsung SSD 970 EVO 1TB (home partition)
All firmwares up to date, VMWare Workstation Player 15 and 16 (same problem).
