Jul 22 18:32:02 myhost kernel: vboxdrv: echo 2 > /proc/sys/kernel/perf_counter_paranoid
My errors.log is full of these messages and I can't do anything with this, because there is no "/proc/sys/kernel/perf_counter_paranoid" file in my system.
Also I'm not sure that doing "echo 2 > /proc/sys/kernel/perf_counter_paranoid" before loading vboxdrv would make these errors go away. According to http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk ... nux.c#L500, no matter what /proc/sys/kernel/perf_counter_paranoid file contains, the error will always be logged.
Will the coming VirtualBox 3.2.8 have the same issue?
