    VLC on W10 VM on Linux Hosts (Workstation 12.1 - Fixed


    Hi there.

    on some Linux Hosts using Vmware workstation / Player VLC doesn't work properly on a Windows 10 VM - you don't get any dropdowns from the menu.

    A reasonable fix for this (apart from checking that you have any Video drivers installed for your Host system) is to install the MESA package (your package installer should get all dependencies too).

    This fixes the problem and a few other niggedly screen properties.

    (By the way for those using distros with RPM packages a great graphical GUI for package installing is YUMEX).

    Cheers
    jimbo.

    :)

  2. purchase license upgrade from windows 7 to 10 since if I upgrade now, VM will run only in Windows 10 host PC

    So you are sure if upgrade now to w10 ... there will be No migration problem of w10 VM to the Mac host from windows host... correct?

  3. External Hard Drive not in File Explorer

    Plug in the drive and then boot the VM, although there's a possibility that the VM layer is causing issues so look at the host hardware that is accessible to the VM.

    Alternately do as I recommended above i.e. "boot from a Linux Live USB/DVD with the drive already attached to your PC and powered on". That way you're booting directly into Linux and your drive may be accessible. No guarantees though.
