Nicco,
something strange is happenig with this firmware. All is continuing to work fine, at least for my needs, but at startup I am now getting several warnigs (21 in total) from vmware: Just as a sample I report below one of them:

Message from syslogd@DESKTOP-1 at Dec 2 13:40:48 ... Hostd: backtrace[18] rip 00007f5f607bcfc0 /lib64/libc.so.6(__libc_start_main+0xf0) [0x7f5f607bcfc0] Message from syslogd@DESKTOP-1 at Dec 2 13:40:48 ... Hostd: backtrace[19] rip 00000000004fe999 /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-hostd() [0x4fe999]

I was not able to find in which log file such messages are stored, If you point me out where the log file is I can attach a copy of it, just to give you a full report.

I repeat everything looks fine except for such messages that were not present with previous releases of kernel 3.17. Any idea about the causes? Googling around I did not find anything useful. I even forced a recompilation of vmware worstation but with no change.

Thank you for your help
