hi there, recently bought new laptop with Intel i7-5500U 2.4GHz which holds integrated i965 it has also dicrete radeon, but vmware is not launched on that card.
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics (rev 09)

compiled without sna which causes some other oops instead with uxa
Code:
[ebuild   R   ~] x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917-r2::gentoo  USE="debug dri -sna udev uxa -xvmc" 0 KiB

when I run vmware player it gives me kernel crash
Code:
[ebuild   R   ~] app-emulation/vmware-tools-9.6.5.2700073::gentoo  USE="-vmware_guest_freebsd vmware_guest_linux -vmware_guest_netware -vmware_guest_solaris -vmware_guest_winPre2k vmware_guest_windows" 127,570 KiB
[ebuild   R   ~] app-emulation/vmware-player-6.0.6.2700073::gentoo  USE="cups -doc vmware-tools" 224,790 KiB

critical log

I think that VMware can't work on native linux kernel, only on selfpatched kernel. That a proprietary BUG %) Like other software from VMware.

I think so cause they using proprietary function those doesn't supported in mainstream kernel.

You can try to unload vmci kernel module in a slight functional degradation. If it helps - keep in mind that isn't only one bug you can faced with. The reason - use proprietary VMware kernel.

Thanks, without much of thorough testing vmware now runs and doesn't cause kernel oops with vmci unloaded.

Though it's bit strange since my old c2d worked pretty much fine, but I understand there are many factors to it ... let's see when 4.2 gets stable whether it changes something.

I recommend 4.1.12 or 3.18.22

Since 4.1.12 was stabilized I gave it a try, but it still crashes ...
Code:

So I'll stick with blacklisting vmci/vsock a going back to 4.0.9 since new kernel apparently creates additional problems right now like - https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106851 ... life's not always easy :)

Hm it's looks like VMWare have awfull pointers programming and them writing kernel modules...!? lol

Sorry but no one here can't support that software. Even mainstream kernel.

I don't know what cause this Oops, but i think that if you use VMWare kernel maybe you get more stable system.

P\S

That's VMware modules crash linux kernel with awful pointers =) The solve of that problem is choosing from use proprietary kernel with proprietary kernel modules or never use them in open source linux kernel in cause of stability %)
