Ticket #1192 (closed defect: worksforme)
Random crashes of VBox also crashing the X server
|Reported by:||ugemkow||Owned by:|
We are using VBox on linux host (fedora 6 based, vanilla kernel 2.6.22) with Windows XP guest. We have added own compiled X drivers (radeon, intel) with xrandr 1.2 enabled.
We see on different notebooks (Thinkpad R51, 52 - single core processor and Thinkpad R60 - dual core) regular crashes of VBox where also the X server crashes. The crash often happens after a few secondes, sometimes without even doing something in the guest. On other machines, no single crash was observed.
We tried the OSE version and the provided binaries, we tried the debug and the release build of the OSE version. The log files did not contain any useful information.
I am aware that this is not a very helpful bug report but I found no pattern which would produce more information. It seems that the SMP (dual core) machines had more problemes but this is not really significant.
I cannnot say whether this problem is caused by the own compiled video drivers but only when using VBox there are problems. Unfortunately I cannot use the distro provided drivers for difficult reasons.
