Using VirtualBox 4.2.20_2 (emulators/virtualbox-ose) on a 9.2-RELEASE amd64 4 core (8 CPU with HT) host a FreeBSD 10.0-RC5 amd64 (also tested with 3 and 4) VM with 4 allocated CPUs will repeatedly crashes when I try to build a pkg repo with poudriere (ports-mgmt/poudriere) via the bulk command.

The crash appears to occur during the building of the reference jails (one per CPU - 4). I don't see anything in /var/log/messages, /var/crash/ is empty, and savecore doesn't dump any core files. I've tested this with 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 CPUs allocated to the VM and it crashes every time. The only way I can have the VM not crash is with 1 allocated CPU. I believe there's an issue with VirtualBox and FreeBSD 10.0 VM when the VM has multiple CPUs. I don't think this is a poudriere issue however it's the only way I've been able to crash the VM. I've tried extracting multiple ports trees to different locations at the same time thinking it's a disk issue because of the above "Device not configured" (The/a disk disappears?) error, the VM didn't crash. I've tried the same command with a FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE amd64 4 CPU VM under the same host with out any failure/crashes. Could anyone confirm this with a multi-CPU VM and FreeBSD 10.0RC3/4/5 or recommend any methods on how to debug this issue? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
