EDID / DCC Problem

Hi All,

running on centos 7.6 / gnome-dektop, and the system is running in VMware (latest) and we encounter a problem
that makes our system run out of memory. The desktop systems are used thru x11vnc, using a java desktop application on it.

There are several things going on but one of them is this error:

Code: Select all

Mar 15 05:01:44 <machinename> journal: unable to get EDID for xrandr-Virtual1: unable to get EDID for output
Mar 15 05:01:45 <machinename> journal: unable to get EDID for xrandr-Virtual1: unable to get EDID for output
Mar 15 05:01:45 <machinename> journal: unable to get EDID for xrandr-Virtual1: unable to get EDID for output
If this error occurs, sometimes for several ours Xorg memory increases until the X system restarts due to not
having enough memory.

Is there any way to disable DDC or the EDID mechanism, so we can overcome this problem?

Thins like setting options in xorg.conf doesn't work, the vmware card driver is not supporting it.
