Windows XP on Snow Leopard breaks VirtualBox

Reported by: joelbrock Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.0.6
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


It was working fine after upgrading to Snow Leopard. Until i launched my Windows XP SP2 VM. The VM would freeze and get mired in suspended mode. After maybe 3 attempts the entire VirtualBox App failed to start!

Now it just bounces in the Dock for a while and fails. I have to Force Quit the app.

What i've tried: deleting plist files in ~/Library/Preferences/ recovering a working state from Time Machine download and install VB 3.0.4 none of these worked.

Here is the only thing in the system log i could see of any import, though i have no idea what it means:

9/10/09 1:51:18 PM VirtualBoxVM[6369] VirtualBoxVM(6369,0xb0356000) malloc: * mmap(size=1048576) failed (error code=12) * error: can't allocate region * set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Oh my gosh, i need this app to do my job. Please help if you know anything!

TIA, ~joel
