Quote from: humbert on May 08, 2023, 06:48 AMVirtualBox allows me to put down as many as 10 cores and doesn't ask about processors. I'm not too clear why this is even on there at all. Can anyone explain?
Quote from: scarface on May 08, 2023, 08:46 PMWeirdly enough I can set 32 cores (with Vwmare player), even if I have far fewer cores. I just keep the configuration by default with 2 cores...

I just keep the configuration by default with 2 cores...I just tested that. It gives me an error message that the VM may not work correctly with this setting (anything above 16 cores). Why do you give the VM only 2 cores if your CPU has more? It's not like the cores are "locked in" to the VM. The host OS keeps working OK. Also, I can't understand why the settings on the main program (not the player) let's you choose how many processors and how many cores, yet the player only shows cores.Do you or anyone else play around with distros of Linux on VMware? I like Linux Mint. I'm asking because I can't copy/paste from host to guest, and the sound card doesn't work either. This despite the fact that both settings are correct. With Windows hosts everything works. I would guess distros of Linux would be less of a problem on VM's. It works OK on VirtualBox. Let me keep Googling, I might find an answer somewhere.
