I just installed the April 1, 2013 install distribution of Archlinux on a VMWare Workstation 9 virtual machine.
I now occasionally get these errors on the console:
sda3: WRITE SAME failed. Manually zeroing.
The underlying disk on the host system is a Samsung 830 SSD.
Not sure what the cause of this is, or even what the exact problem is. I've done some reading on "write same", but I'm not much more enlightened. Is there some setting in VMWare or in the kernel I can configure to eliminate these errors?
Did you ever find a solution to this? I've experienced this same issue on two separate computers, trying VMWare and VirtualBox and I can't seem to find anything relevant to this.
I have this error too.
And I install the Archlinux in a VMware workstation 9.
The virtual disk is vmx format. One in SSD,the other one in HDD, both have this promblem.
I'd suggest trying the LTS kernel.
But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.
I also get this. Only solution so far is to use linux-lts kernel. Something changed in the kernel as with linux kernel 3.6.10 I wasn't getting this message.
Spykos, how'd you do this? I get this error before I even install Arch. It occurs when I try to mount /dev/sda1 to /mnt. Should I just dig up a copy of the arch iso from march?
