VMware – Kernel 5.8 is a Serious Problem? — 2 Comments

  1. “I am now reading up on KVM etc, just in case…!”

    That is exactly what I have been doing the last few days.
    😀

  2. After upgrading Arch and finding kernel 5.8 running, any attempt to run existing or create new vms in VB 5.2 caused the entire system to hang, and hard. So I uninstalled VB and installed VB 6.x and this worked on my X240 but not my Optiplex. VB manager wouldn’t start, complaining about missing kernel modules. I rebooted after every change. Even tried pacman -U on kernel 5.8 to get back to the earlier kernel version
    which didn’t change the missing modules issue. So I guess I get to learn KVM & libvirt again to run Windows 10 on my Arch desktop. Amazing that Arch maintainers didn’t send out an email alert on this one…
