VBox 3.1, Random Crashes when running linux 2.6.31-9-rt kernel

Reported by: wilbur.harvey@… Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0
Keywords: RT Kernel, Crash Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux


My host system is an i7 processor, 12 GByte of ram, Karmic-64 running the latest kernel 2.6.31-17 (the -16 kernel had was the same), graphics card is Nvidia 9600. Guests were Windows7, 32-bit and Karmic 32-bit. Attempting to solve the problems of VERY slow Windows7 performance, some users suggested using the RT kernel. It did seem to help the performance, especially related to the GUI interface. After random amounts of time, from a few hours, to a couple of days, the guest would crash. I tried this on 3 hosts, all the same Karmic, 64-bit, two were running Windows7, 32-bit guests, one was running Karmic 32-bit guest. No real evidence, but it "seemed" to be related to network access. The Karmic guest crashed one time when nothing was running except a bzr update over the network from another machine. There was no mention of this being fixed in the 3.1.2 release notes, and no mention I could find in the forums other than my own post which has had no replies.

A VBox.log file from such a session is missing. What type of networking is selected for this VM?
