Vbox 4.2.12 on OpenIndiana 151a7 locks system during install

Postby vitki » 31. May 2013, 02:55

Sigh. I've tried 4.2.12 on down to 4.2.6 and all of them lock the system during the installation of the package.

I've attached the pkgadd output from the install, any help would be appreciated.

There are no messages on the console, and during the installation of drivers all network sessions will eventually die, and the console becomes unresponsive.ye

So I have to reboot the physical server to access it again.

modinfo | grep vbox yields no output

Anything else I can upload to get some help?

I have two NIC's installed (onboard), and both use the e1000 driver, but only one is enabled and I'm not using vlans either.

Sigh. I was not able to figure out why the driver (it died when loading the base vbox driver) was killing the system... HOWEVER I was able to get it working...

I upgraded to 151a8 and it works! No idea why, others have posted on the OI wiki with 151a7 working, but obviously my hardware not so much...

151a8 is an attempt to restart the OI development (which seems to have almost dried up)

See the following post on the Mailing list if you are interested in upgrading to 151a8...
