Ticket #4529 (closed defect: fixed)
vboxdrv fails to load on 2.6.31-rc3 (says NMI watchdog is active) => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||robhancock||Owned by:|
When booting with kernel 2.6.31-rc3 x86_64 on Fedora 11, vboxdrv fails to load claiming the NMI watchdog is active. This occurs even if nmi_watchdog=0 is specified on the kernel command line.
vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently... vboxdrv: NMI watchdog either active or at least initialized. Please disable the NMI vboxdrv: watchdog by specifying 'nmi_watchdog=0' at kernel command line.
Strangely enough, simply attempting to load the driver again often succeeds.
