My solution to slow Oracle VirtualBox Linux guests #virtualbox #linux

This drove me frigging nut a VirtualBox was the problem for my slow Linux based guests.

‘ve got the solution! I created a complete new VM for rhel6 and made a base installation. The new vm was running very well so I compared the settings from my very slow vm created along time ago with VB 3 and noticed that on the newly created vm under VB 4 “Enable IO APIC” (System –> Motherboard –> Extended Features) was selected. I selected it too and surprise surprise, the vm runs as expected!


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
