Troubleshooting


DHCP fails to get an address - boot with no network for now. I need to debug why DHCP is not returning? I set up NAT so it should be okay. Have a look in the log file.

At first, with a MS/Windows XP Professional boot CD loaded, it was not recognised. In VM->Removable Devices->ide 1:0->Edit, turn on Legacy to be able to boot from the CD. Perhaps this is an issue with kernel 2.6.7.

A reported problem (that seems to have now been fixed) has been with vmmon and vmnet modules that won't build against recent 2.6.x kernels. You can download the fix from ftp://platan.vc.cvut.cz/pub/vmware(look for vmware-any-any-update*.tar.gz). There are also some instructions on how to fix it at http://thomer.com/linux/migrate-to-2.6.html.
