Ticket #2288 (closed defect: fixed)
vboxadd-timesync makes Etch/64 guests Xorg crash
|Reported by:||stephanecharette||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 2.0.2||Keywords:||debian vboxadd-timesync|
After installing the Guest Additions in Debian Etch 64-bit, I find that X continuously restarts every few seconds. The problem is exasperated by typing on the keyboard into a guest window (like bash, or into gedit).
The workaround I've discovered is to disabled timesync. Once the VirtualBox timesync is disabled, X no longer restarts. For example, if I run this, X wont restart anymore:
If at any point in time I run "/etc/init.d/vboxadd-timesync start", then X immediately starts crashing again.
I've run into this exact problem with 2 different computers running Ubuntu 8.04-64bit and Debian Etch 64-bit as host. I've confirmed the "workaround" works the same in both situations.
