vm crashes after unpredictable time (pgmPoolTracDerefGCPhys) => Fixed in SVN

Description

A RHEL 6 VM running on a Windows 7 host crashes after a random about of time while using a GUI that has a lot of graphics, like gimp. When I run the exact RHEL 6 VM on a Fedora 11 host it runs fine, never crashes. The virtual tools are installed that came with VB3.2.6. The time it takes to crash ranges from 10 minutes to 5 hours, but it always crashes. By crash, I mean the whole VM is locked up.

I am not an expert but from my observation it looks like the VM cannot access the disk any longer and / or the video driver.

Also, when I run this RHEL 6 VM on a Windows 7 host and only run basic GUIs like a terminal or firefox (basic static web page) it does not crash, I have ran it in this state for days. Once you start to use a GUI that uses a lot of screen real estate, say opening up a image in gimp in full screen after a bit of time the whole VM will crash.

Attached is the VBox.log Please let me know if you need more information.

  • Summary changed from vm crashes after unpredictable time (pgmPoolTracDerefGCPhys) to vm crashes after unpredictable time (pgmPoolTracDerefGCPhys) => Fixed in SVN

Should be fixed either in VBox 3.2.10 or (more likely) in the next maintenance release. Disabling large pages should work around this problem as well.
