Ticket #4256 (closed defect: fixed)
Guest allocates more RAM than allowed and crashes
|Reported by:||Sim||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
The host owns 2GB RAM and the guest is free to allocate 768MB of this. When I start ressource intensive operations on the guest, after a wgile all the RAM of the host is allocated. If there is no more free RAM available, the guest operation crashes. This phenomenon is reproducable, especially with different installer files. For example, it appeared with the Adobe Reader Installer or the Windows XP Service Pack 3.
First I thought, that the RAM-Module is damaged, but the after exchanging them from the old 2GB memory to new damage-free 4GB the same situation appeared after a while.
