Hello.

Question Re: Vmware fullscreen problems

Never noticed that before. My VMware Workstation 4.5.1 7568 => RedHat full screen is 60Hz too. I don't know enough linux/gnome/redhat to change it. I'll play around and ask some folks at my workplace who use VMware Workstation.

FWIW My VMware Workstation 4.5.1 7568 with WinXP refreshes at 85, same as my hardware display.

EDIT: It shouldn't matter, but are you using workstation on a Linux host or a Windows host?

Default Re: Vmware fullscreen problems

I tried to load it on windows host. Fullscreen mode works fine. I think the plroblem is in Xfree. Will someone please help me to configure Xfree in a proper way?
