ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 3077
VirtualBox 4.3 freezes my system making it dead
Last modified: 2014-09-22 17:08:02 MSD
Description of problem:
After upgrade to VirtualBox 4.3 the system freezes during running VM. It is the hard freeze, no any hardware that is working. Fox example, cursor doesn't move, SysRq doesn't work, no problems in logs.
Affected 3.8.x and 3.10.x kernels
we do not have vbox 4.3 in official repositories yet and we do not support packages from external sources.

kernel logs (netconsole)
I've collected kernel logs using netconsole. Alex, if you got the same problem, you can attach your logs.

Full dmesg log
Full dmesg log
Since you use VBox from upstream, I would suggest to send these logs to upstream.

One more log
The crash occurs in a different place each time and the value of IP register of a faulting instruction is always bad, although different. Looks like a stack corruption because it is the most common way to jump to an invalid memory area.
Unfortunately, none of the logs shows a valid call trace, so it is unclear where the problem happens.
Kmemcheck proved to be unusable either, it makes the system too slow to work with.
I'll try to find more suitable tools to analyze that problem.
The problem no longer shows up with VirtualBox 4.3.14 on my machine. Please reopen the bug if it still happens.
