As in the title:
Would using the virtual-kernel (instead of the vanilla) yield benefits for Ubuntu 8.04 server on Sun's latest VirtualBox?
Host OS: 32 bit Ubuntu 8.04 server (plain kernel)
Sun's Virtualbox 3.0.x (x=12 iirc)
Guest OS: 32 bit Ubuntu 8.04 server (plain kernel)
One thing to note is that the initial install/vdi file creation was done on 32-bit Windows XP (which was then copied over after which a new vm configuration was done on the Linux host using VBoxManage).
I had to turn on PAE to boot the kernel and also (this may seem strange) IO-APIC because otherwise I got scary kernel panics while booting.
Bonus question: any other obvious signs of non-optimal configuration / performance tips?
Please be gentle as this is my first serverfault question (I usually frequent stackoverflow more).
