I re-installed my PC the other week. I was running:
- openSUSE 12.1
- nvidia driver 319.23
This was working fine, but getting a bit outdated obviously :) So I decided to install the latest version of openSUSE (13.1) with the latest nvidia driver (331.20). This combination is working fine, but when I try to start a virtual machine running in vmware player, vmware player simply stops. No crash information in the console, nothing. On the openSUSE forums, I found this: https://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/virtualization/492179-vmware-player-opensuse-13-1-a-3.html.
Reverting to 325.15 (with a patch applied to make it compile on Linux 3.11) indeed solves the problem.
Any insights on why this is not working with 331.20?
Many thanks in advance.
