Red Hat Linux 7 as guest crashes VirtualBox

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.4
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Red Hat Linux 7 (2.2 kernel) crashes VirtualBox. It happens on kernel boot, right after boot loader.

This crash doesn't look like a normal crash (no error messages), it just closes the VM window immediately.

Software: openSUSE 10.2 Linux, VirtualBox 1.3.4 Full.

To maker life easier for you, I have decided to put a ISO for download.

Red Hat Linux 7 ISO link:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. download this image
  1. start a virtual Box 1.3.4 with this ISO inside
  1. press enter to start installing RHL 7
  1. VirtualBox will crash

NOTE: due to many conversions this file got, ISO's checksum will not be original, but the rpm's that are inside are 100% original. Original or not, it should NOT crash VirtualBox.

Additional info: Red Hat Linux 7 is an ancient Linux Operating system, released in 2000, running on kernel 2.2. It has KDE 1 and GNOME 1.

Thanks for the testcase. We will look into it. You are correct: it should not crash VirtualBox. Most likely it causes a guru meditation (a release assertion to aid debugging).

  • priority changed from critical to minor

I can reproduce the problem. It triggers a situation we have not implemented support for yet. We will probably look into it but it has a low priority

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate

Doesn't crash here. I get up to the textmode selection box for language. Could be the same thing as the syllable bug you reported before.

Fix verified. This doesn't crash on boot now.

Tested on: Windows Vista, VBox 1.4.0.

RHL 7 still crashes in the mid of install stage however.
