VMware stalls, journalctl reports kernel bug

#1 Post by toquinho »

Hello,
I recently upgraded my system (see below for details) from buster to bullseye. I often use a Win10 in vmplayer (because of an OpenGL CAD application). This worked without problems in buster. Now the VM stalls irregularly, but often, for about 30 seconds or a minute. A reinstallation of the Win10-VM on a partition of the M.2 disk of the computer did not help. The rest of the system works normally during the stalls, and journalctl and dmesg do not report anything (as far as I noticed). I am not sure if the problems are caused by the upgrade to bullseye.

Now, during the shutdown of a VM after a longer stall, I got the following message from journalctl with a "kernel BUG at fs/ext4/inode.c:2626!" somewhere in the middle:

Code: Select all

Unfortunately, I do not know how to read this. But I wonder if this is related to the stalls I am observing?

The machine I am using is a Dell Inc. G3 3579/00FK8Y, BIOS 1.4.0 09/05/2018, 32GB. It has nvidia-optimus, but currently I am using the built-in Intel graphics only because of a problem that is off-topic here. Uname -a says:

Code: Select all

Linux CARTMAN 5.10.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-2 (2021-07-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux
And the version of VMplayer is 16.1.2 build-17966106.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Toquinho.

Re: VMware stalls, journalctl reports kernel bug

#2 Post by toquinho »

The stalls were caused by a file system error on a USB-drive which was mounted both on the VM and on the host. It caused the VM to stall, but it did not have any noticable impact on the host side. fsck fixed the file system, and the VM now runs without problems.

As I do not know if the kernel bug that showed up in the log is as serious issue, I will wait for a day or two before marking the thread as solved.

The broken drive turned out not to be the only problem for the stalls. Somehow the VMware graphics driver was not working correctly and had to be reinstalled. Now everything works as it should.
