#6577 closed defect (fixed)

Synthetic CPU setting ignored => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Benjamin Gilbert Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 3.1.6
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


After I enable the Synthetic CPU option on a VM using IMachine.setCpuProperty(), VBoxManage properly reports that Synthetic CPU is enabled, but /proc/cpuinfo in the guest does not change. The reason appears to be that Console::configConstructor() places the CFGM node at /SyntheticCpu, but CPUM expects the node at /CPUM/SyntheticCpu. Adding an ExtraData key to the machine configuration:

VBoxInternal/CPUM/SyntheticCpu -> 1

indeed causes the guest's /proc/cpuinfo to report the synthetic CPU.
