[Fixed] SharedFolders with kernel-3.11: impossible

Postby ManfredB » 17. Sep 2013, 17:21

My Host: PCLinuxOS 64bit

My Guest: Fedora20 with kernel-3.11

After installing the VBoxLinuxAdditions it seems to go without problems.
Kernel-modules - no error
Guest-Additions - no error
Windows - no error.

But after adding User to /etc/group/vboxsf and reboot
it is impossible to use SharedFolders.
One CPU 100% and the program frozes: mc or krusader or konsole, when I change to /media/sf_Daten.

My question: Additions or kernel?

Did you try using the shared folder manually without automounting?

I can confirm that the shared folder even when mounted manually fails. (Fedora-20 & Ubuntu 3.10) It does mount and shows no errors during mount but trying to access the share kicks the processor into high use but does not return any data in either terminal or file manager. So there must be an issue with kernel 3.11 and VBox, but that can be expected with pre-released OSes.

The issue has already been reported on the Arch Linux forums and bug tracker, as well as bug #12128 on the VirtualBox Bugtracker (sorry, can't post links). It seems like it's most related to the kernel itself, seeing how the host OS and VirtualBox version are irrelevant to its occurrence. Keep in mind that this issue also happens with the stable release of VirtualBox, so the mods should consider moving this thread to a different forum.

Seeing how the application seems to hang on getdents() (according to the strace output posted by one of the users on Arch Linux forums), perhaps dirops.c from changeset 47588 is the culprit?

Yes, and this is now fixed with Beta 3.

Frank,

is this issue going to be fixed on VirtualBox 4.2 ?

the reason I ask is because I'm also having this issue there as well.

Thanks

Chuck H.

Issue fixed with yesterday's Arch update of virtualbox_guest_modules_4.2.18-4. It is a vb problem.

Yes, we will fix this problem also for VBox 4.2.x but a new 4.2.x release will still take a bit more time.

I'm still having this problem.
I just installed VirtualBox 4.3.0 r89960 with the latest Guest Additions and CPU still goes to 100% when trying to ls a mounted folder.

What can I do? Thank you

This is the beta discussion forum and 4.3.6 is no longer in beta test. Please post questions in the normal forums.

This is a final follow up to my previous post to the beta forum.
I am posting this to help anyone who may have followed this thread.

OpenSuse 13.1 (at least) has a virtualbox guest additions patch which
fixed my problem.

I found it by searching Yast, the OpenSuse system/software
manager, when logged in to the guest.
