Has anyone been able to get 9.1 to boot in VMWare at all, or is everyone having
this problem?

Quoting James Knott <james.knott@xxxxxxxxxx>:

I get the same problem on my ThinkPad.

I'm using VMWare Workstation 4.51 to try to run the new 9.1 LiveCD image.

Unfortunately, it's simply hanging at "Starting PCMCIA". The system


freeze - entering characters will display on the console (telling me that
VMWare didn't hang, nothing "crashed" per se), but will not continue past


point and displays no errors.

I've tried the "safe mode" boot, but it has the same problem.

I also haven't been able to find any parameters (in the VMWare virtual BIOS


in the VMWare app itself) that would seem to make any difference.

Has anyone else run into this? Obviously there's no PCMCIA in my virtual


PC, is there a boot option to disable starting the pcmcia module?

SuSE 9.0 runs just great for me in VMWare.

I booted the SuSE 9.1 LiveCD on my VMware; boot went okay but after few seconds I got a text mode login page and everything stops there. No root password combination worked so far.
