Ticket #4704 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Should suggest unloading KVM module instead of recompiling kernel
|Reported by:||AnssiHannula||Owned by:|
When kernel module kvm-intel or kvm-amd is loaded and VirtualBox errors out with VERR_VMX_IN_VMX_ROOT_MODE, it shows help text "Please disable the KVM kernel extension, recompile your kernel and reboot".
It should check if kvm-intel/kvm-amd are loaded and instruct to remove that module instead. It is a lot easier than a kernel recompilation. At least Mandriva Linux has been shipping kvm as modules in the default kernels for quite some time now.
