I have further narrowed down the problem. I'm setting up Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to build Android source. Right after Ubuntu is installed, here are the ONLY steps done via command line:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libglapi-mesa:i386
$ sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386
The last message from sudo apt-get was:
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
At this point, a proper shutdown is performed to Ubuntu. Then trying to play this virtual machine again will fail. It stuck at the Ubuntu screen with the 5 red dots.
Anyone else encountered such problem or know how to fix this?
I have somewhat similar questions and still looking for a solution.
My VMWare workstation 12 Pro runs on a Windows 10 64 bit host.
Has been running without problems for years.
Recently, without any warning and in a totally random way it hands up.
As the attached vmware.log shows, the last entry there is:
2019-08-02T15:48:39.813-04:00| vmx| I125: GuestRpcSendTimedOut: message to toolbox-dnd timed out.
2019-08-02T15:48:56.332-04:00| vmx| I125: GuestRpcSendTimedOut: message to toolbox-dnd timed out.
When I try to re-install Tools, the process is started
2019-08-02T16:01:19.031-04:00| vmx| I125: TOOLS INSTALL entering BEGINNING state.
2019-08-02T16:01:19.031-04:00| vmx| I125: ToolsISO: open of C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\isoimages_manifest.txt.sig failed: Could not find the file

but quickly stops with the same message
2019-08-02T16:01:19.056-04:00| vmx| I125: CDROM: initial physical CDROM state is 1 (sense)
2019-08-02T16:02:19.062-04:00| vmx| I125: GuestRpcSendTimedOut: message to toolbox-dnd timed out.
The VM can't be shut down or suspended. Even if the instance of VMWare Workstation / Player is killed,
some of the related processes keep running and cannot be stopped. The only solution remaining is to reboot the host.
Could someone please HELP ?
