comment How do I stop the clock running fast on a virtualbox client running ubuntu 8.04?
Linux Debian host, Windows XP guest, the clock is delayed by up to exactly 3 minutes. If I sync the time (using NTP) an I let it run for approximately 15 minutes or more, the guest's time will be delayed by exactly 3 minutes. This is with the Guest Additions installed. The problem persists at least with Windows XP guests.

comment How do I disable swap for VirtualBox in Linux?
Thanks, but this is not good enough. I do not want any swap at all. Setting swappiness to 0 only means the kernel will do its best to avoid swapping, but it will still swap if needed. "Sufficient RAM" is arbitrary and depends a lot on what other applications are running on the host.

@mgorven: I really don't want swap at all for VirtualBox. Setting /proc/sys/vm/swappiness applies to the entire system and still swaps if the system is out of memory. I know I could do swapoff -a to avoid swapping, but that still applies to the entire system. I only want certain processes (VirtualBox).
