Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Due to current project requirements we have to run a Debian 4.0 'Etch' system as VBox guest. The guest usually ceases operation after 1-2 days due to virtual hard disk failure, and seems to confuse the host environemt severely enough to make system reboot advisable. The 'Etch' guest runs Kernel 2.6.18-5-686, while host is Debian 6.0 'Squeeze', running virtual box version 4.0.2_OSEr35621 on Kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64. On the host, a bunch of other VMs (Debian Etch and Lenny 32 and 64bit guests) are active, which don't share these problems. The complete setup has been migrated from vmware to vbox a couple of months ago, where it run well so far.

The virtualbox OSE package has been recompiled for Squeeze at our site, using apt-get source sid. Previously, we tried the Squeeze-bundled version 3.2, which had the same problems (remark: we upgraded the host from Lenny to Squeeze for the same reason).
