Description

Hello,

I have a problem with VirtualBox running on the SuSE Linux 10.0 AMD64 host system. I am running the Windows XP as a guest OS. There are following messages loged in the syslog while the vboxdrv is loading:

Aug 31 19:56:56 home-cermak kernel: vboxdrv: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
Aug 31 19:56:56 home-cermak kernel: vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently...

When I shut down the VM there are following messages in the syslog:

I am using the VirtualBox_1.4.0_Linux_amd64.run. The same problem occured with the new VirtualBox_1.5.0_Linux_amd64.run. As a consequence of the problem reported by the above syslog messages I am not able to shut down the host Linux. It freezes while the "swapoff -a" command is executed. The VM and the guest WinXP runs OK. The only problem occurs when the WM shuts down. The same problem occurs even when I start VM with "empty" disk (without installed guest OS). I have fully patched SuSE Linux Eterprise Desktop 10.0 running on the "AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000+" with 512MB RAM.

I have found solution for me. I had enabled Audio for the VM and used ALSA driver. When I changed the Audio driver to the OSS sound driver or when I disabled Audio for VM the bug didn't occur (no kernel-fail messages in syslog, host Linux turns off OK). When I used the OSS driver I had problem with Skype running in host Linux: it had problem with sound device. Therefore I disabled Audio for VM and I am happy :-).

It works in the 1.5.0 even in the 1.4.0.
