dmesg log entry of the crash
I tried to install openSUSE 13.1 in VirtualBox on a 13.2 host (with the virtual harddisk located on an ntfs-3g partition), and VirtualBox just froze during installation. It hang, I couldn't quit VirtualBox, and I couldn't even access the ntfs partition any more (had to reboot).
I tried a few times, and this happened every time: most of the time it froze when installing some package (sometimes I even got a YaST error dialog before the freeze), a few times it hang during partitioning already.
Attached is the kernel log entry printed by dmesg.
Searching the Internet led me to this upstream kernel bug report:
This states that it is fixed in 3.17, and indeed after upgrading the kernel to the current 3.19.0 from Kernel:stable I didn't have a problem any more.
The upstream bug report mentions two commits that should fix this:
Would it be possible to backport those to 13.2's 3.16.7 kernel?
PS: this is the corresponding mailinglist thread on email@example.com:
Bug#918954 was about backporting exactly the same commits, and this has been done yesterday.
So I'm closing this one as duplicate.
