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!FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
