#5989 closed defect (invalid)

Clock is almost at a stand-still

Reported by: Morten-Christian Bernson Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2
Keywords: time slow in guest os Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Solaris


Host: Solaris 10 U8 (10/09) Guest: CentOS 5.4, kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5 Guest additions installed: Yes

With a fresh install, the clock is going very very slowly in the guest os. I have tried different suggestions from this bug report: but it seems they have the opposite problem, that the clock is going way too fast...

When trying these options to the kernel, the clock seems to work ok, but then the machine just dies after a few minutes with nothing in any logs: nmi_watchdog=0 elevator=deadline noapic nolapic divider=10 nolapic_timer clocksource=acpi_pm

After hours and hours of googling, I resort to open a bug report for this, and hope there is a solution for this problem, as I have to choose between having a machine that only stay on for a few minutes, or a clock that slows down 10 minutes per minute or so...
