Ticket #3065 (closed defect: fixed)
XP guest unable to allocate and lock memory
|Reported by:||rober1s||Owned by:|
I have a Kubuntu8.04 host with two quad-core Xeon 3.3 GHz cpus 8MB of physical memory, running the 2.6.24-23-server kernel so that all 8MB of memory is seen by Linux.
I have a Windows XP guest. When I try to configure the memory for the guest, the VirtualBox GUI only sees 3.584 MB of totall available memory, not the full 8. If I configure the guest to have access to 3.0 MB of memory, VirtualBox complains about HostMemoryLow and that it is unable to allocate and lock memory when I try to reboot the guest. Host memory is not low -- I still have 5MB free on the Linux host.
I need to be able to allocate at least 5BM of memory to the XP guest, but cannot do it via the gui. My log is attached.
