Please reproduce your error on a second machine before posting, and check the error by running without saved changes or extra modules (See FAQ No. 13, "How to report a bug"). For unstable Porteus versions (alpha, beta, rc) please use the relevant thread in our "Development" section.

kernel panic in virtualbox

Post#1 by vj777 » 23 Apr 2016, 20:53

Porteus has a problem running in VMs. I tried Porteus LXqt V3.1 for 486 (as it's eventually going to run on a non-PAE machine). booting the iso in virtualbox gave a kernel panic with a sync error.
The solution was to disable VT-z/AMD-V in the virtual machine settings (Settings>System>Acceleration on Oracle virtualbox V5.0.2).

Just posting it here in case it helps anyone else.

Thanks for the info. But this is the first time in years that one reports such a difficulty with booting the porteus iso on vbox.

Though I do not remember using porteus lxqt edition in vbox.
