VMWare and NVidia Drivers
has anyone experiences with VMWare and the NVidia driver under linux? VMWare says in the hardware requirements that "Linux hosts must have a video adapter supported by the XFree86 server to run guest operating systems in full screen mode.", and on the XFree-site only older chips are listes as supported.
VMware works fine in full screen mode (on the host) when using the nvidia Xfree86 drivers.
What versions are you talking about?
I'd suspect you'll find quite a few people who've gotten VMWare working on various nVidia cards.
I've been running VMware for a long time, all versions I've tried (2/3/4) have worked fine with all the Nvidia Xfree86 drivers released.
All the Nvidia driver does is accelerate X, then VMware hooks into X and uses standard X instructions to display the 'VMware client' in a window.
The driver for the VMware client is VMware's own SVGA driver, The Windows XP & 9X one's are great but running Linux on VMware in Linux isn't great because Linux Client txt mode doesn't display properly. (but X displays fine)
