Description

I run VirtualBox 2.1.0 on an Ubuntu 8.10 32bit host. When I tried to run a 64 bit guest Ubuntu 8.10 (with AMD-V enabled on my Turion64X2 TL-50 CPU), the virtual machine crashes.

VBox.log will be attached (VBox.png merely shows a black screen with a _ character, not much information...)

Fixed in SVN. To work around it enable PAE in your kernel configuration.

Do you mean kernel configuration in VirtualBox or the host kernel? Because if you mean the configuration for the VM, I still get the same error.

Same problem when installing a Windows XP 64-bit guest, attached VBox.log and VBox.png.

The Linux kernel config of your host needs to be adjusted.

To be more specific: To enable PAE you have to recompile your host kernel after you selected the CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G in your Linux kernel configuration (Processor type and features / High Memory Support (64GB).
