Ticket #5771 (closed defect: fixed)
OSX kernel panic in VBoxDrv.kext when starting virtual machines -> fixed in SVN/3.1.6
|Reported by:||poeml||Owned by:|

OSX 10.5.8, VirtualBox 3.1.0 (iMac Intel Core 2 Duo)
Since today, I get host kernel crashes when starting a virtual machine.
I haven't seen the problem so far, and have been using several different Linux VMs over weeks, with no problem.
Today, I resumed an old CentOS VM that had been suspended since June. The VM has thus been created with a VirtualBox version older than 3.1.0. When the resume started, I shortly saw some kind of scroll bar, and then the crash happened (forcing me to reboot my iMac). I'll attach the kernel backtrace below.
After rebooting, I tried this VM once more, and it resumed successfully (date was showing some day in June...), and seemed to work fine just fine.
When I then started another VM (that I had been using several times during the last days/weeks), I got the same crash again. That one had been shutdown, not suspended.
After another reboot, I tried it vice versa, and the crash happened when starting the second VM.
Therefore, I have the suspicion that when I start more then one VM, starting the second results in the crash - at least when the one CentOS image is involved.
I had been using several VMs simultaneously in the past, with no problem.
[I'm not sure what the right component is for this, thus I chose other (the default)]
