Ticket #5620 (closed defect: duplicate)
new version slow and crashing
|Reported by:||joy||Owned by:|
Using VirtualBox since version 2.x and I am happy with that most of the time, thanks. Version 3.0.8 was the first one that allowed running SMP (dual CPU) guest (WinXP 32bit on AMD 64bit Ubuntu Karmic Koala host) stable enough (previous versions were BSODing randomly) although the graphics performance was about 50% of single CPU guest. Version 3.0.12 increased 2D graphics performance so it was only about 30% slower than single CPU guest (still weird that it's slower than single CPU guest but I could live with that).
Version 3.1.0 is WAY SLOWER in graphics performance compared to even 3.0.8 (and far far slower than 3.0.12), contrary to enabled 2D graphics acceleration. Worse is that WinXP keeps crashing during boot to BSOD roughly four times from five runs. It's unusable. I am going to downgrade now hoping that it's possible (given that I already installed 3.1.0 host tools in WinXP).
Attaching some logs, maybe you'll find them useful.
