VirtualBox on Fedora with Solaris 10 in a vbox

If you install Solaris 10 as guest OS (in a virtual box), the partitioning tool - Fdisk - cannot create any partitions.

WORKAROUND : use a dynamic disk, for some reason that works fine

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This bug was fixed in 1.5.6. The problem is that a fixed-size disk may lead to a very long response of some disk requests. The guest is confused about that and freaks out. Since 1.5.6 we touch the whole image when creating a fixed-size disk image.
