Upgraded from vmware-workstation- to vmware-workstation-

Performed the following as root:

# emerge --config vmware-workstation
Configuring pkg...

Stopped all configured services on all networks
Backed up existing network settings to backup file "/tmp/vmware.2DPncn"
Restored network settings

Run as user:

$ vmware

Downgrading to vmware-workstation- and vmware executes as expected.

I played with this on and off for several weeks using the test ebuilds trying to figure this out and have had no success.

Comment 1 Kenton Groombridge 2012-12-18 14:29:24 UTC
Thinking that it may have been a package that was corrupted, didn't have proper patches, etc, I performed an emerge -e vmware-workstation.  Unfortunately this didn't change the outcome.

I installed vmware-workstation on my desktop which has similar useflags as my laptop and it executes without issue.  I am beginning to think it may be something with my laptop, but downgrading to version 8, and vmware executes as expected.

Same here.
Comment 3 Kenton Groombridge 2013-03-10 15:13:19 UTC
Installing vmware-workstation- made no difference.  Backing down to the most recent 8.X version "vmware-workstation-", and all is well.
Comment 4 Kenton Groombridge 2013-03-11 17:49:52 UTC
Found a solution:


Backing down to net-misc/curl-7.28.1 and vmware-workstation-9.X is running on my system.
Comment 5 Kenton Groombridge 2013-03-11 18:33:13 UTC
Sorry for multiple posting, but wanted to ensure I could recreate the problem so I went back to net-misc/curl-7.29.0-r1 and vmware-workstation- is running without problems.

I am dumbfounded as I don't know what "magically" happened.  The only thing I changed was downgrading curl and going back to the most recent version as of the day of this post.

I rebooted just to be sure that I am using net-misc/curl-7.29.0-r1.

I hate it when it does this.
Comment 6 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2013-12-27 16:36:44 UTC
Well... unfortunately there's no setting RESOLVED ABSOLUTELYNOCLUE, so NEEDINFO will have to suffice. If you encounter problems again, feel free to re-open or better open a new bug.
