    Re: Official Virtualbox

    How's it going Alan? Can you mark this thread as solved or are you still getting freezes?

    Yippeee!!!

    Yes, your recommendation worked: I installed the official version of VirtualBox and now all of my keyboard-freezes have stopped (or at least I haven't had one for 3 days).

    I am extremely relieved. Many, many thanks for the tips!

    This thread can certainly be marked as solved

    Regards,
    Alan

    PS: Maybe Ubuntu should update the version of VirtualBox OSE that they have on their server?

    PS: How do I mark a thread as solved? Can I do that or is it done by admin? I've been looking for a flagging option but can't see one.

    Look at the choices under 'thread tools' in red above.

    Everything is fine now. Yes, it was Virtualbox and installing the official Oracle version (with regular patching) solved the problem.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Not that worked for me previously but they have released a couple of (semi reasonable) patches since then.
