|0004190||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2017-08-25 05:59||2017-08-30 07:54|
|Target Version||2017.2||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004190: Bad graphical rendering on VMWare with Linux 4.12 and Wayland, unable to login|
|Description||I update my system use "apt-get update;apt-get upgrade;apt-get dist-upgrade"|
when update completed,I find my system kernel changed to 4.12.0 in /boot directory
when I reboot my system , the gdm screen is entirely gray and I can't login.
|Steps To Reproduce||update system kernel to 4.12.0 from 4.11.0|
||I installed it in vmware 12.5.7|
This is a known bug with "vmwgfx" in Linux 4.12. I'm working on getting a fix. In the mean time, continue to boot into Linux 4.11 (via "Advanced menu" in grub menu) or login to a text console (CTRL+ALT+F3 for example) and change /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf to have "WaylandEnable=false" in the "[daemon]" section.
I uploaded linux 4.12.6-1kali2 with a patch provided by VMWare. The package will take a while to build but tomorrow we should be able to test and ensure that it's fixed.
(It will probably be available in kali-dev in a few hours but kali-rolling will have to wait until tomorrow)
||The kernel failed to build so I had to fix some other issues first, the correct version will be 4.12.6-1kali5 and will be a delayed a bit further since the build is just starting.|
||The new kernel does improve the situation a little bit for me but it's not really that yet. I see all windows elements now but the text that I type is not displayed instantly.|
Indeed, there is a slight lag (text).
Some more information: if you enable 3D acceleration in the VM settings, then the work-around patch provided by VMWare is actually working.
But since I have other problems related to Wayland (cf 0004199) I still decided to switch back to Xorg by default for now. This is done with kali-root-login 2017.2.0 and should be available in tomorrow's daily images:
This is finally fixed with linux 4.12.6-1kali6.
VMWare provided this patch:
