I am running VMware Player with Linux host (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit with all latest patches applied) and several VMs such as Trusty alpha and Saucy, Windows 7 and XP.
I happened to receive an unexpected crash today that says:
VMware Player unrecoverable error: (mks)
Unexpected signal: 11.
A log file is available in "/home/vmware/Ubuntu-14.04-alpha/vmware.log".
You can request support.

We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.
when I power on the VM.
Related log file is attached.
This error happens on multiple (=another) VMs with same error message. Are anyone have any solutions ?
The cause of this problem may be a confused behavior of graphic driver, namely fglrx. By uninstalling fglrx and related packages (and rebooting), everything is now going very fine. Of course, I can use VMware Player with no problem.
sudo apt-get uninstall --purge fglrx fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle
I suppose Ubuntu team may spread problematical updates in a few days relating to ATI proprietary driver. It affects desktop Unity integration as well as VMware, and all things are now going normal.
A temporary workaround not involving uninstalling packages or rebooting is to:
1) open vmplayer
2) go to "virtual machine" in the menu bar
3) click on virtual machine settings
4) uncheck the box to use 3D graphics
5) start the virtual machine
