Problems with ST/X and Solutions

Solved: vmware freezes when sound card is disconnected

We are expiriencing a problem with VMware (vmplayer 2.5.2 build-156735 host: SuSE Linux 11.1, guest Windows XP).
When ST/X tries to play a sound with the MessageBeep() API, VMware grabs the mouse pointer and the keyboard, and no further actions are possible until vmware is killed (via remote login).

This is apparently a problem in VMware.

Fix: switch off sounds as described here
