Summary0006541: kali 2020-2 crashing
DescriptionI am installing kali 2020-2 on vmware workstation 15 for the 5th time. I install normally, but when I start using it, it locks up gnome and I have to restart. I already put more memory and nothing. If connected via ssh, I can use it. But the gnome graphical interface crashes everything. Any solution?

service gdm3 status what's output and xfce is bad if we talking about kali in my opinion
2 did you tried to installed different graphical env and if so did you choose gdm3 or this manager from new environment
3 dmesg | grep error and journalctl what's output
4 when kali ends booting up do you have text mode
i've see in forum BIG problems with vm's like virtualbox and rarely with vmware can't you guy's install linux in physicall drive or live usb or use windows vagrant vmware and virtualbox is bad in doing virtualization things

1. Ctrl + Alt + F1
2. sudo apt-get autoremove gdm3
3. sudo apt-get autoremove --purge gnome*
4. sudo apt-get clean && sudo reboot now
6. apt-get install gnome-core kali-defaults kali-root-login desktop-base

Hope This Helps

I'm using VMware wordstations 15.0 to virtualize kali.
I did not install new graphical interfaces, I like Gnome. However, sometimes when I try to use several screens at the same time as Firefox with several tabs, the GUI crashes, but if it is via putty I can use it normally. These problems are occurring only in the kali 2020-1, 2020-2, 2020-3
