System Hang When Using Windows + Unity3D inside VMWare on Linux
 
2 Attachment(s)
I am getting a consistent hang in my Linux machine when trying to view Unity3D content in a Windows guest in VMWare on my Linux machine.

(Unity3D is a game engine and editor that's somewhat popular).

Visiting this URL repros the problem consistently on my machine: http://unity3d.com/gallery/live-demos/index.html

Some logs from VMWare that might be relevant:
Quote:

May 25 17:17:50.018: mks| GLHostCreateContext: Rendering is direct.
May 25 17:17:50.036: mks| GLFBO: unexpected incomplete FBO reason 36055

May 25 17:17:50.036: mks| GLShader_InitContext: Can't bind FBO
Files attached.

FWIW: I installed a CentOS 5.5 with the same NVidia driver version and VMWare version. The behavior is identical on this other OS. The issue seems to lie somewhere between VMWare and NVidia. Thanks!

Thanks for the input! I seem to be running the latest VMWare tools 8.4.6 as well, but, no go for me. Thanks though!

Not to artificially bump, but FWIW: I installed a CentOS 5.5 with the same NVidia driver version and VMWare version. The behavior is identical on this other OS.

Thanks!
