Kernel – 5.7 Is Out. OK with Patched VMware and NVIDIA.. — 2 Comments

  1. I’m running VMware 15.5.6 on Linux 5.7.7 (Fedora). Applying the patch successfully allowed VMware to run (thanks!), however I’ve found that Drag&Drop only works one way. I can drag from Host to Guest fine, but attempting to drag or copy from Guest to Host produces an error such as:

    Error when getting information for file “/Hj1Ipo/asdf.txt”: No such file or directory

    The directory indicated does not exist and seems to be randomly generated. This was just a test “txt” file on the guest desktop.

    I get the same error from both Linux and Windows Guests, although the non-existant directory changes.

    … It looks like “Shared Folders” also fail. Fortunately USB works.

  2. I’m using vmware on windows 10 with debian 10 virtualized. Everything seems working, except the fact when I click on vmware “both monitors”, yes I have 2 monitors setup, vmware gives me a double black screen. If I go back to 1 screen everything works great. When I boot debian as default kernel, 4.19, fullscreen works great on both display. Think need to wait for a custom patch from vmware.
