    Default Kernel freeze if virtualbox running

    I'm running openSUSE 12.1 (and Tumbleweed) without problems. But a few seconds after starting a Virtualbox Session (i.e. XP oder Win7) a lot of kernel error occure:

    Dec 5 11:59:50 sb kernel: [ 1699.743883] device eth0 entered promiscuous mode

    .....

    Some seconds later the system freezes. Does anybody know this problem?

    I'm using virtualbox from this repo: Index of /repositories/Virtualization/openSUSE_12.1

    this and all Tumbleweed post should be to the Tumbleweed forum,
    http://tinyurl.com/3ljwanm

    but, to answer your question directly--everyone knows about it...i quote:

    [quote]
    At this point there is no guarantee to have all additional modules
    available in the stable release like for Vmware or Virtualbox. And while
    the Packman Tumbleweed Essential repository attempts to deliver them
    there is no guarantee they will always succeed due to the
    incompatibilities with the quickly advancing Linux Kernel. The problems
    with proprietary Graphics drivers are similar and there is no guarantee
    they will work tomorrow, even if they do today. If you don't know how to
    compile your own additional kernel modules and you don't wish to learn
    or keep a very close eye on what is being updated, please don't use
    Tumbleweed. . .

    openSUSE 11.4 supports VirtualBox. Due to it not being in the mainline
    kernel and Tumbleweed routinely receiving kernel updates, it has been
    decided not to support VirtualBox in the main Tumbleweed repo.

    i think all you need to do is compile a VBox built on and for the kernel
    you are using.. (every time it changes)

    OK, i was gone back to 12.1 (without Tumbleweed). Does openSUSE 12.1 support VirtualBox? Or should i go back to 11.4?

    Anyway, i have the same problem in 12.1.

    as far as i know it does (but i've not read every post here about 12.1
    and VBox)..

    but, i guess you know the VirtualBox you run _must_ match the kernel you
    are running....so, if you have rolled back to the kernel shipping with
    12.1, _and_ have the VirtualBox available in the 12.1 oss repo it should
    (as far as i know) "just work"....but, you can use something like the
    following search string to see for yourself: http://tinyurl.com/cyqxbhd
