Damn, this thing is super slow. I’m writing from it right now. Although the X server seems to be ok, doing a simple “yum update kernel” is super duper slow. I guess this 4G/4G patch thing really does make a huge difference.. and this seems to be confirmed both in the VMware forums as well as some posts on kerneltrap.org.
I wonder why they decided to put that patch in by default? Does fedora want to alienate all the vmware users?
Update: It looks like updating the kernel to the 741 build seems to help a lot. It still feels slow, but now it’s in the range of plausibility for VM overhead.
