Android emulator and virtualbox cannot run at same time

Removing the kvm kernel modules (using ‘sudo rmmod kvm_intel kvm’) makes it possible to run the Virtualbox and the Android emulator at the same time but the performance of the Android emulator in such a setup is extremely bad. If possible it is better to shutdown the Virtualbox emulator and unload its driver (vboxdrv) by running ‘sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv stop’. Google suggests this “solution” on its Android Emulator page in the section about Linux.
