VMWare Graphics Driver Problem And Help!

Feb 20, 2012 at 7:29 PM

Ok I have spent like five days messing with the VMWare Graphics driver, and no matter what I do SetMode makes VMWare reboot. I even did a debug and nothing happens. So I know someone was using the driver and had no problem, please someone help me. I would really like to play with it. Thanks - Matt

Are you able to set a mode? Because I cannot get past SetMode. Thanks - Matt

It's the update command that causes my OS to crash

Did a little bit of debugging and your code is perfect, only the update command is broke. The error I get from VMware when using the update command:

VMware Player unrecoverable error: (mks)

Invalid SVGA FIFO registers.

Note: I was able to set mode and pixel, now you cant see the pixel till you update

When I called the update command I got this error. I believe the issue lies somewhere in the drivers FIFO registers, 

If I spend some time I may be able to track down which one causes the issue. Thanks - Matt

Cosmos, please look into this.
