Linux guest freezes randomly with many virtual processors
|meerkat freeze processors
Meerkat guest freezes randomly when I give it four virtual processors on my Core i7 machine. It works fine(for me) with two virtual processors. This is discussed on the forum here: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=35214
At first, I'd have trouble typing -- I'd have to type a character twice for it to show up in a window, or sometimes I'd type it once, and five copies would show up in the window. Same thing with mouse clicking. Then it would no longer be able to open new windows. At this point it might still allow me to choose shutdown from the top menu, but it would not actually shut down or reset. I'd have to hard-reset it from the VBox menu.
I am attaching a log, but I am not sure if it's from the correct session.
