F9 VMWare Server 1.0.7 Locks on Guess OS Boot

Does anyone here know how to solve this problem? I'm not exactly sure what to look at or what to provide you guys to help me diagnose this problem...

Like when I boot my guess OS's, it'll do a hard lock on my laptop.

Just a suggestion.

First, open a terminal and log in as root, then copy and paste the folowing:

tail -f /var/log/messages >> /home/username/vmware.log

Then open a terminal and as a normal user type and enter


and see what if any output you can capture in either the normal terminal or the output vmware.log in your home directory.

You saying 1.0.7 locks your PC? I'll sit with my 1.0.6 for now. Go to 1.0.6?

No I can't even do that because once I hit 'Start Guess OS', it locks up.

Same with 1.0.6 marc.

I can't find the post where some guy uninstall three apps and everything worked out perfectly. Because I was reading it and he did it for his 1.0.6 and I was thinking, heck I have 1.0.7 so I'll just look at it later.

FF never got to restore the websites...and I didn't saved it it my favorites.

Haha, I fixed it. I just went to System > Administrator > Add/Remove Software > Virtualization ...and then unchecked everything. Did a reboot and everything's working now.

And then here's a couple of suggestions from other people. The thing is I have no idea how to do what they are talking about...

"If you have kvm-related kernel modules loaded, try removing (rmmod)
them before you start vmware."

"So apparently it was virtualization conflicts...

I removed the Virtualization group, qemu, and kvm... and it worked.
