vmplayer garbles screen

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi everybody, Just installed vmplayer using the bundle from the vmware website, running 64 bit Fedora 17. The install went fine but when I try to run a virtual machine the screen becomes a giant mess. Toying around with ctrl-alt-f1 ctrl-alt-f2 eventually restores the screen but by that time vmplayer has halted. Any ideas how to start tackling this one? ---------- Post added at 12:15 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:01 AM ---------- Alright, running in Forced Fallback mode gave me an error message to google and then this site: http://rglinuxtech.com/2012/08/24/vm...initial-tests/ (HowTos)
