I am using android studio and using Genymotion as my virtual device in Ubuntu 14.0.4 LTS. I was having a good time with Genymotion. Since a week as i run Virtual machine to use Genymotion computer Suddenly Freezes. But as soon as i close the Virtual machine machine starts working smoothly.What can be the problem? is it the problem with my machine?
Genymotion is a known resource hog. Maybe you need to add more RAM. Then you can allocate more RAM to the VirtualBox VM.
A guest OS in VirtualBox can be configured to use up to 256MB video memory. To increase the video memory to 256MB, open the terminal and type:
VBoxManage modifyvm "Name of VM" --vram 256
You can also configure the number of processors in the VirtualBox settings.
