#1744 closed defect (wontfix)

Ossimplanet crashes on VMWare player VM

Reported by: micha Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: major Milestone: OSGeoLive11.0
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: ossimplanet vmware
Cc: live-demo@…


After launching Ossimplant, the splash screen comes up, then the application just closes. I allocated 1.5GB RAM to the VM.

From a console:

user@osgeo-live:~$ ossimplanet
ossimPlanetEphemeris support disabled, please recompile with OSSIMPLANET_ENABLE_EPHEMERIS defined
VMware: vmw_ioctl_command error Invalid argument.
Aborted (core dumped)

This is specific to VMWare virtual machine. In a Virtualbox VM it works as expected.

This crash of ossimplanet still persists in RC2 (only in a VMWare Player virtual machine. VirtualBox? works fine)
