I tried with only 2 GB of memory and 2 CPUs on the guest side: same. It crashes every time.

Thanks for the crash dump. Actually your crash is related to 3D so disabling 3D in the VM settings would work around this problem.

Thanks @frank. I can confirm that after disabling 3D acceleration, I can take a snapshot. So let me add my graphic card:

  • AMD Radeon R9 280x 3072 MB

I also realise I forgot to set the host and guest type in the ticket…

I did try with Debian Jessie (32-bit). Even with 3D acceleration enabled, I can take a snapshot fine. I forgot to specify above that it was a 32-bit Fedora 23.

Same problem with 64-bit Fedora 23: crash with 3D acceleration enabled, no crash without it.
