Description George R. Goffe 2015-09-24 21:50:59 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to install VirtualBox 5.0.x extensions and systemd doesn't like something. This results in an out of memory condition which freezes the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-222-4.fc23.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot virtual fedora 23
2.mount VBoxLinuxAdditions.iso on the loopback device
3.cd to where #2 mounts
4.type in ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
5.tail -f /var/log/messages

Actual results:


Expected results:

I've had trouble installing the guest additions, too, also getting this message.

From what I've seen, when systemctl is asked to start the vbox services, it keeps spawning processes: there is, e.g., one "systemctl enable vboxadd" process, followed by an increasing number of "systemctl enable vboxadd.service" processes.

Kriton,

I have also tried different versions of the additions and have tried to contact the VBox mailing list. No luck yet. Sigh...

George...

THis is a completely different problem and should be fixed with newest chkconfig.

For the original issue we probably need https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/8046c4576a68977a1089d2585866bfab8152661b
Comment 4 Lukáš Nykrýn 2015-10-08 07:41:25 EDT
And that patch is already in f23, so this should be resolved. Please reopen the bug if you are still able to reproduce it.

Hi,

I installed this yesterday and from what I can see, this problem is gone now... There does appear to be a problem with DKMS and this "product" though. When I rebuild the kernel module the version for "With KCMS" fails but the NON-KCMS succeeds.

George...

Here's where I got this update:
