Ticket #7996 (closed defect: obsolete)
vbox 3.2.12 causes kernel panic on Hardened Gentoo host
|Reported by:||Anthony G. Basile||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
Using the latest stable hardened kernel from Gentoo (hardened-sources-2.6.36-r6) starting a virtual machine causes a kernel panic on amd64. The kernel is configured with UDEREF off (as discussed in Ticket #2652), but with KERNEX on. The problem occurs because the vbox code tries to modify read-only kernel pages which it should not do.
