#898 assigned defect

vmware won't start through virtualgl LD_PRELOAD

To get it to work, I had to place the virtualgl libraries in /etc/ld.so.preload before launching vmplayer.

I also tried launching vmplayer from a regular terminal with just:


Same problem. Weird.

For now, I have added this information to wiki/Usage/OpenGL.
It would be good to figure out what is going on here.
