Hi Jerry,

welcome to the mailing list and thanks for giving Genode a try!

this message is an assertion that we put in to prevent our automated
tests to exercise the netperf benchmarks on Qemu (we execute those on
real hardware only). However, you can manually override this assertion.
Please have a look at 'ports/run/netperf.inc', which is implicitly used
by the 'netperf_lxip.run' script you executed. Right at the beginning of
the file, it states:

  # setting environment variable FORCE_QEMU permits running netperf in qemu

Could you give it a try?

Unfortunately, I am unable to help out since I am unfamiliar with
VMware. Just out of curiosity, have you tried booting any of the other
kernels (e.g., hw_x86_64, sel4_x86_32) in VMware?
