vmware-networks

leave a comment »

Ever since I installed VMWare Workstation 6.5.0 on my Intrepid, I can see from the bootchart that booting hangs for approx. 8 seconds on vmware-networks. Someone reported this at ubuntuforums.org.

I know that the vmware services start from /etc/init.d/vmware, and that the log file is /var/log/vnetlib. In that log file, I can see many errors about it not being able to find some .pid files in /var/run, but they’re there:

VNLExtractPidFromFile – Could not open the PID file: /var/run/vmnet-netifup-vmnet1.pid, error: No such file or directory
VNLExtractPidFromFile – Could not open the PID file: /var/run/vmnet-dhcpd-vmnet8.pid, error: No such file or directory
VNLExtractPidFromFile – Could not open the PID file: /var/run/vmnet-natd-8.pid, error: No such file or directory
VNLExtractPidFromFile – Could not open the PID file: /var/run/vmnet-netifup-vmnet8.pid, error: No such file or directory
VNLExtractPidFromFile – Could not open the PID file: /var/run/vmnet-detect.pid, error: No such file or directory
