I have opened this thread because I upgraded to ubuntu 12.10 beta (kernel 3.5) and I have a problem with VMware Workstation 9:
Unable to change virtual machine power state: Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to
Does anyone have the same problem?
This is a clean install of Ubuntu 12.10 (daily build). I installed VMware 9 and patched but it's not working. I can't patch correctly and get the things to build correctly.
My laptop is a Lenovo T420 with Nvidia Optimus Technology.
This message is shown when I try to apply the patch:
Stopping VMware services: VMware Authentication Daemon done At least one instance of VMware VMX is still running. Please stop all running instances of VMware VMX first. VMware Authentication Daemon done Unable to stop services
How can I stop the VMware services to apply the patch? This message is shown when I try to patch again:
./patch-modules_3.5.0.sh /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/.patched found. You have already patched your sources. Exiting
But VMware is not working, and I can’t uninstall.
