Followup to a number of other threads on this subject..

I loaded F12RC.1 this evening from scratch and, as a part of my promised
experimenting, I installed VMware Workstation 7 (build 203739).

The minor issue with SELinux aside (portrelease dac being denied, which
either installing while in permissive mode or re-compiling VMware's
modules separately later on fixes), Workstation 7 installed and ran
flawlessly. Absolutely no issues whatsoever.

So, given previous commentary, it seems the problem with Workstation 7
on F12 actually had something to do with F12 - and most likely something
going on with X. The problem wasn't with Workstation 7. Whatever the
problem was, it also seems to have been fixed in the latest Rawhide / RC
updates, and seems to have happened sometime after the beta was

I'm certainly not going to complain that it is working now. Hopefully it
will stay that way.
