Ticket #2652 (new defect)
Gentoo hardened (grsecurity) hosts not supported
|Reported by:||decoder||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Running normal linux systems as guest works fine, however when I try to boot a Gentoo Hardened _Guest_ system, VirtualBox reports a Guru Mediation Error and the VM freezes on kernel bootup. I tried with various hardened Guest kernels (2.6.23-r7, 2.6.24-r3 and 2.6.25-r9, all hardened-sources from Gentoo) but the error remains. Grsecurity/PAX presetting in the kernel is set to "high". The produced log is attached.
I will try to narrow down the search on why the kernel crashes by disabling some of the hardened options but so far I didn't have much success.
- Version changed from VirtualBox 2.0.6 to VirtualBox 4.2.2

- Summary changed from Guru Mediation (VERR_TRPM_DONT_PANIC) with Gentoo Hardened Guest to Guru Mediation with Gentoo Hardened Guest (grsecurity)
