#1862994 VMware SVGA II display driver for OS X, v1.2.5

Posted by Zenith432 on 25 October 2012 - 04:50 PM

I released VMsvga2 v1.2.5 and uploaded to SourceForge. Release Notes for v1.2.5Added Support for ScreenObject2 (available Workstation 8/Fusion 4 and beyond). Fixed bug with use of ScreenObject/ScreenObject2 under Workstation 9/Fusion 5. Memory Allocation has been overhauled to support unrestricted allocation of guest RAM for CGS surfaces. Previously VMsvga2 was limited to use of guest VRAM for this purpose. This implies guest VRAM can be reduced to its minimum value of 16000 KiB - and VMsvga2 will still provide full functionality. guest VRAM size may be set in the VMX file as follows svga.autodetect = "FALSE"svga.vramSize = "16384000" Window grab in Grab application has worked since OS 10.7 due to fixes made in OS X.I made an extensive effort to try and build v1.2.5 for Leopard - but was unsuccessful. Current versions of ld (Xcode 4.5.x) produce kexts that can't be loaded by OS 10.5 due to alignment issues. The installation package is for OS 10.6 - 10.8.

#1760201 Fix Lion 10.7.2 on VMware

I found the easiest way to fix the problem was to 1: Copy the 10.7.1 (or .0) version of the offending KEXT to your desktop. 2: Install the update (not software update). 3: Before rebooting use Kext Wizard to reinstall the older KEXT and then update/fix KEXTS and permissions in Kext Wizard. 4: Reboot. Fixed. :)
