VM hangs while installing JavaCAPS on OEL 5.5 w/2.6.32 kernel

When I attempt to install JavaCAPS 6.2 in an Oracle Enterprise Linux v5.5 virtual machine with the "unbreakable" kernel (2.6.32), the virtual machine hangs during the installation. I don't see any information in /var/log/messages in the VM indicating a crash.

If I reboot the VM using the 2.6.18 kernel, the install works fine.

I have reproduced this problem on VirtualBox 3.2.12 as well as 4.0.0 on a Windows 7 64-bit host.

One more update - I verified that the JavaCAPS 6.2 installer works on a physical machine running Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5 w/2.6.32 kernel.

Still relevant with VBox 4.0.4? If so, please attach a VBox.log file. And also try to disable 3D for that VM.

It looks like 4.0.4 fixed the problem.

Sorry for the delay - it took me a bit to get the environment re-created to make sure I was reproducing my previous steps.

Thank You
