What exact version of VMware Workstation?
What exact Linux distribution and kernel version of the host?
Distro is Gentoo;
Linux spitfire 22.214.171.124Mactel-Pentium-M-Rev1 #6 SMP PREEMPT Sat Nov 4 18:39:58 EST 2006 i686 Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2600 @ 2.16GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
spitfire stardotstar # vmware -v
/opt/vmware/workstation/lib/bin/vmware: /opt/vmware/workstation/lib/lib/libpng12.so.0/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2)
VMware Workstation 5.5.3 build-34685
This has been running very smoothly for a long time - refer some of my post history if necessary so I suspect it has something to do with the suspend process or modules not coming back online properly somehow. Any insight into the "filter function" would be tremendously helpful...
Thanks for the reply KevinG and sorry for not posting proper supporting material I should know better

Try starting VMware from the command line using the following syntax
Does it still have the issue?
I will indeed try this since I have found that it is often reproducible after hibernation.
Something does not seem to be coming back online properly.
Strangely enough though I find that often I can resume from hibernation with a VM still running - ie not even paused itself with no ill effects. Other times the workstation finds that its module won't load and needs to be reconfigured...
Just a Data Point:
Distro: Debian Sid
Kernel: Linux schwarzkopf 2.6.20-1-686 #1 SMP Tue Apr 24 21:52:11 UTC 2007 i686 GNU/Linux
Installed using Petr's Patch
I get the following when I start vmware:
VMware Workstation 5.5.4 build-44386
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/libcairo.so.2)
administrator@schwarzkopf:~$ VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=force vmware
process 3736: Attempt to remove filter function 0xb6d272b0 user data 0x87f9ee0, but no such filter has been added
process 3736: Applications must not close shared connections - see dbus_connection_close() docs. This is a bug in the application.
If I dont use the VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=force vmware I cannot browse the file system, but otherwise VMware seems to work fine.
Not really a "Problem" report.. but just data for any developers who might want to see this.
Yeah, start hal, or quit dbus, either works.
