    Default VirtualBox 3.2 hogs CPU at 100%

    I tried upgrading today from VirtualBox 3.1 to 3.2 (VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.0_61806_openSUSE111-1.x86_64.rpm) on my openSUSE 11.2 system and it's not cooperating.

    The installation itself went fine, but as soon as I try to start a guest, the VirtualBox process ramps up to 100% and stays there until I poweroff the guest. The guest itself is VERY slow. These guests worked fine on 3.1.

    For example, if I start an openSUSE guest and stop the Grub counter, therefore leaving the screen at the Grub bootloader, the VirtualBox process remains at 100% forever, without any activity on the guest.

    I also have a Windows guest and it has the same problem.

    Please see my signature tag for my host specs (my laptop).

    I can obviously try downgrading again to 3.1, but I was hoping that someone else has run into this issue and knows what to do about it.

    Check the output of

    Code:
    zypper se -s VirtualBox
    Chances are that you have both 3.1 and 3.2 installed.

    Here's the output - It appears only 3.2 is installed:
