Description Alessio Cassibba (X-Drum) 2007-02-15 10:51:45 UTC
During the normal use of app-emulation/virtualbox-1.3.4 under an amd64 machine, a random hard reset will occur.

upstream said that is a known bug.

I think masking it temporarily should be the way to go until the issue is solved.

amd64: your thoughts?
Comment 2 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-15 20:58:31 UTC
give me a day to reproduce it first

Comment 4 Alessio Cassibba (X-Drum) 2007-02-16 19:10:31 UTC
sometimes it occurs during the installation of an application
or on automatic system updates

(sorry for previous comment: mistake)
Comment 5 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-16 20:07:38 UTC
Okay, I didn't realize this package provided a kernel module, so a hard-lock isn't all that special. Upstream's homepage says:

 * A supported host operating system. Presently, we support 32-bit Windows (primarily XP) and many Linux distributions. Support for Mac OS X and 64-bit operating systems is currently in the works. 

I marked it -amd64. We'll happily reconsider keywording it once upstream supports 64bit OSes too.
Comment 6 Markus Ullmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-20 09:57:24 UTC
Upstream fixed this, please re-keyword the live ebuild
Comment 7 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-21 20:00:02 UTC
Done. Do you want to keep this bug open or close it and reopen it once a new version is out?
Comment 8 Alessio Cassibba (X-Drum) 2007-03-14 22:19:53 UTC
A little update about the hard reset problem on amd64,
the problem still occurs in:
app-emulation/virtualbox-{1.3.4, 1.3.6, 1.3.8}
app-emulation/virtualbox-bin-{1.3.4, 1.3.6, 1.3.8}

the only version not affected is the svn version,
with the last 1.3.8 the problem still occurs.
Comment 9 Markus Ullmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-03-27 20:13:07 UTC
Upstream will implement it in 1.4 (talked to them about it today)
