Virtualbox kernel modules cause heavy corruption of display
|Reported by:||auxsvr||Owned by:|
According to the description in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36934#c13, the kernel modules of Virtualbox cause severe corruption of the display in Linux when using the r300g driver with a radeon AGP card. Simply loading the kernel modules in linux 3.1rc9 and various older versions is enough for heavy corruption to appear after scrolling through a PDF file in okular or using applications that load large textures. Unloading the kernel modules and restarting Xorg makes the corruption disappear, and prevents it from reappearing.
This has been occurring for at least a year with various kernel-virtualbox version combinations.
