Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

When trying to load the vboxdrv kernel module on SUSE KOTD 2.6.31-rc4-master_20090729140126_ddfe58ae-default x86_64 it fails with:

PC1 kernel: [  414.624889] vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently...
PC1 kernel: [  414.624893] vboxdrv: NMI watchdog either active or at least initialized. Please disable the NMI
PC1 kernel: [  414.624894] vboxdrv: watchdog by specifying 'nmi_watchdog=0' at kernel command line.

With 2.6.30 I didn't saw that problem and according to the SUSE kernel developers is caused by a change how the 2.6.31 kernel handles the NMI.
