    VM's won't start on Linux host (kernel 3.5.2) - kernel panic

    birdie Master

      When I try to start any VM I get this message:

       

      Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to power on '/home/birdie/vmware/Other/Other.vmx'.
      Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection has been broken.
      

       

      in the UI log:

      Host: CentOS 6.3

      Kernel 3.5.2 x86 - vanilla

      GCC: 4.7.1 - vanilla

       

      Even more I cannot stop VMWare services:

       

      [root@localhost tmp]# /etc/init.d/vmware stop
      Stopping VMware services:
         VMware Authentication Daemon                            [  OK  ]
      At least one instance of VMware VMX is still running.
      Please stop all running instances of VMware VMX first.
      
         VMware Authentication Daemon                            [  OK  ]
      
      

       

      even though there are no VMWare processes running:

       

      [root@localhost tmp]# ps axww | grep -i vm
      20853 pts/4    S+     0:00 grep -i vm
      

       

      Oh, I get it, VMWare wreaks havoc here:

            That's a good suggestion but I won't try it as I expect VMWare to release kernel modules which are 100% compatible with current kernel releases.

              BPenglase1 Lurker

              The suggestion above does not actually work, due to differences in the modules versions.

              I am also getting the same thing on Gentoo linux, with 3.5.2 from the master-testing branch on the Zen-Kernel sources.

                HI.. I am getting the same problem with new VMware 9.0.0 build-812388 on Kernel 3.5.0-7-generic

                 

                When I want to start a VM the GUI tells me:

                 

                Unable to change virtual machine power state: Failed to power on '/pool/vmware/Windows 7/Windows 7.vmx'.
                Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection has been broken.

                 

                on dmesg I found

                And I can also not restart vmware services:

                 

                $ sudo /etc/init.d/vmware restart

                At least one instance of VMware VMX is still running.
                Please stop all running instances of VMware VMX first.

                  I hope my patch is helpful.

                  vmmko: patch to support new exception table

                   

                  The patch above is a single diff file (you have to patch manually) but An_tony made automatic patcher!

                    yes thanks,

                     

                    after delete all vm modules (sudo rm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/vm*) -> restart (because vmware-modconfig cant stop services and terminate) and patch & compile I am able to start vmware again.
