RPM package installation (Centos, RedHat, OpenSuse...)

Vmware - slow network on Windows 2000


  • First of all, review which network drivers is VMware using, as there are huge differences between drivers, the worst performance-wise is PCNet32 and the best are vmxnet and enhanced vmxnet.

  • Also, check the speed of the NIC, if it is fixed or auto-negotiation mode.

What OS is the virtual machine running on? Also there is a flash bug that will not let go of the audio device until you have closed the browser. I assume that is not your problem, but it is aomething good to know anyway.

On vista i have vmware 6


Your Guest OS uses a Virtual VGA adaptor. As with a normal computer it needs drivers. This usually is installed through VMware Tools. (VMware tells your guest OS there are all kinds of virtual devices. They don't exist physically but need their drivers since VMware uses the virtual devices to handle the Host PCs physical devices.

In order to install VMware Tools, go to:
VM > Install VMWare Tools.

Remember that you need Administrator rights.

Need more help? See the link below:
[Installing VMware Tools]

This should do the trick, let me know if this solved your problem.

Greetings,
