So I looked through the above thread but couldn’t find an exact solution to my problems.
I have VMware player installed with a Kali Linux distro, but I’m having issues getting the Virtual machine to run. At first it was running great, but now every time I try to launch it it just freezes up. The software runs fine, I have plenty of ram (64GB) so I’m not over-allocating there. But there’s some kind of setting around
I’m using Windows 11 and have the latest framework drivers installed. I have the Framework 11th gen intel. Not having any issues outside of the VM itself and not getting any crashing of the software. It just won’t respond to keyboard and mouse input after running. Sometimes it’s intermittent.
Anyone have insight or suggestions as to what the cause may be?
So, having looked further into it, it may be because the free version of vmware player doesn’t allow you to configure your VM with advanced settings. The hypothetical solution mentioned in the initially linked thread (side channel mitigations enabled may exhibit performance degradation (79832)) is locked behind the pro version.
