I'm trying to run bitmonerod in a VirtualBox VM with
--data-dir pointing to a directory in a shared folder from the host system. I get this error:
If I do the same in the host system, using the same directory in the shared folder, it works. It also works when copying the entire data dir of bitmonerod into the VM (which I want to avoid). Both host and guest are the same Linux distro (OpenSuSE Leap 42.1). Im running the official 0.9.4 binaries.
I have no clue what is the property of a shared folder that makes lmdb unhappy. It can't be a permission problem as I can read and write to the shared folder from within the VM.
