Kernel – 5.1 Released, OK with latest NVIDIA, and Patched VMware — 5 Comments

  1. 390.116 fails with kernel 5.1 Debian 9.8

    Seems they are forcing video card update or returning to nouveau.

  2. I am getting an error with Fedora 30 and Workstation 14.1.7 and I cannot open Network Configuration to define my networks. When I run vmware-netcfg with sudo I get this:

    No protocol specified
    ** (vmware-netcfg:14043): WARNING **: Could not open X display
    No protocol specified
    (vmware-netcfg:14043): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

    If I try to open it with my own user, it says it cannot execute that without root. If I try to open the vmware-netcfg with sudo, I get the same error as above.

    I have found this solution and it works fine but after reboot, I get the same situration:

    Does anybody else have this problem?

    • Humm… try “su -c” and then your command, for example
      su -c ‘’
      Use ‘ ‘ for safety if the path would have spaces or whatnot
