Guru meditation running AROS live CD, Guru Meditation -2301 (VERR_REM_VIRTUAL_CPU_ERROR)

Reported by: Donuts Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: VMM
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.8 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


Host: Xubuntu 9.10 32-bit. Core 2 Duo T8100, VT-X enabled, VirtualBox 4.0.8.

Guest: AROS live CD from  here.

After doing this:

  • Create a suitable VM to boot from the ISO image.
  • At the boot menu, press return to choose the default mode (VESA 1024x768).
  • After a few seconds the Wanderer screen will appear. Press menu-W or hold the right mouse button down and select Shell from the Wanderer menu at the top of the screen.
  • In the shell window which opens, type
      cd Extras/Demos [return]
      execute StartMesaDemos [return]

This happens:

  • Several demo windows will open. Initially the guest mouse pointer stops responding and the CPU is maxed out (but you can e.g. uncapture the mouse or press host-R to reboot). If you wait a while VirtualBox sometimes gives a guru meditation error.

The initial line in the log file reads:

Trying to execute code with memory type
   addr_code=0000000031002020 addend=0000000084d7e000
   at 0000000031002d00! (iHandlerMemType=0x38 iMMIOMemType=0x30

For some reason the bug tracking system is changing S-t-a-r-t-M-e-s-a-D-e-m-o-s in the commands to type above to a link to the VirtualBox wiki! (I added dashes in between each letter in this comment so it doesn't do the same.)

Yes, that behavior of trac is sometimes not appreciated but nevertheless documented. I've fixed your bug description.
