Does the same happen if you don't connect your OL6 guest to the host network interface (no networking or NAT)?

comment:2 by gtin, 12 years ago

If I disable network adapter in the vm settings and try to shutdown it still freezes

comment:3 by Frank Mehnert, 12 years ago

Does the guest hang or does the VM hang? In the latter case you cannot power-off the VM, you had to kill the process. In the former case this could be also a bug of your Linux guest.

The VM freezes on halting system message from linux guest. I can not even move the vm window. I can try uninstalling guest editions and see if that fixes anything.

As I suspected, uninstalling the guest additions for virtual box fixes the freezing issue.

forgot to mention that I am using oraclelinux UEK version

Hmm, if you even cannot move the VM window with the mouse then does actually your host freeze? Also, do you experience these freezes with the Guest Additions installed but with only one guest core? Unfortunately we cannot reproduce these freezes.

The host does not freeze. I have to kill the guest windows using windows task manager. This only happens with the guest addition installed. It is interesting notice that with oracle linux latest uek kernel you do not get the header files that matches the same source code. The header version did not match the devel version. kernel-uek-headers = 2.6.32-300.38.1.el6uek.x86_64 kernel-uek-devel = 2.6.39-200.34.1.el6uek.x86_64

Also when installing guest additions it mentions that it could not find the headers probably because of the version mismatch in oracle repositories. Even though it can not find the headers it compiles all the modules without errors but the only integration that works is mouse integration
