I am using VMware workstation 8. I have attempted to install and run NetBSD 5.1.2 and 6.0. Installations all went OK and the system was usable until I install a window manager.
After installed xfce4, in NetBSD 5.1.2, I could
startx and used xfce4 two times, however consecutive
startx will hang and max all CPU to 100%.
In NetBSD 6.0 RC2, I could not even start xfce4 once,
startx hangs and max all CPU to 100%.
I have tried to use both vmwlegacy and vmware device drivers, they don't help.
I have also tried both 32bit and 64bit NetBSD, they behave in the same way.
I also tried to catch the output of
startx, however system was already hanging before the output gets flushed.
Apparently no one else has encountered these troubles on Google search, did I miss any configuration piece? Any other suggestions please?
