VB on XP host crashes running Fedora 10 guest

Postby ptipper » 5. Mar 2009, 20:45

Hello all,

I'm running VirtualBox 2.1.4 on a Windows XP host, and I've just installed Fedora 10 on a new virtual machine. I can log in to Fedora, which runs pretty slowly, but if I make any attempt to browse the web or otherwise access the network from within the guest, VirtualBox crashes, and I get the "VirtualBox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close" error message. Sometimes this is accompanied by a kernel panic message in Fedora, sometimes not.

Can anyone suggest how I go about diagnosing what's causing the crash? I had a quick look at the VB logs, but they didn't seem to have any record of the crash.

With such a message there are details, either directly via a button or via the Event logs, when we have that we can figure out whats going on.

OK, there were a number of error entries in the Event Log generated by VirtualBox, all with the following details:

I assume you are using NAT for the guest, could you try Host interface networking?

I changed to Host interface networking, and that seems to have done the trick - thanks a lot! I guess the crash is a bug that should be logged, right?
