I'm trying to install a 64 bit version of Linux in Virtual Box so I can do some development work. I tried the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 12.10, but it was causing the computer to restart randomly. I don't know if this is particular to Ubuntu or just a hazard of virtualizing a 64-bit OS in a 32-bit host. Anyone had better experience?
My computer is an Intel Core i5 running 32-bit Windows 7 and Virtual Box 4.2.6.
UPDATE: I have tried the 64 bit version of Fedora 18 and Mageia 2. Both seems to run stably. There appears to be something in the 3.5 kernel used by Ubuntu that was causing the hard resets. Mageia appears to be a quality distro so I think I'm going to ditch Ubuntu. Never liked Unity anyway.
