Ticket #8396 (closed defect: fixed)
Virtualbox crashes with general protection fault and sort-of kills X
|Reported by:||Kosh||Owned by:|
Using an Ubuntu Maverick install with the latest kernel from Ubuntu natty (unstable), Virtualbox crashes when starting a VM and messes up the X session (reboot required).
The Kernel I used was the Ubuntu image linux-image-2.6.38-4-generic from natty, system architecture is amd64. After the crash (see Kernel log buffer) I can see the Kernel log buffer, still use the X mouse cursor, however, when killing the X session (SysRq SAK) a lot of processes remain in state D (uninterruptible sleep) and a reboot is required.
