Upgrade to 4.1.8 causes NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706BE)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

After upgrading from 4.1.6-74727 on linux host (i386) saved machines fail to start with error NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706BE)


  1. I am running 64 bit Ubuntu Server [Natty] - NO GUI!
  2. I have a user "vbox" that owns a number of VMs
  3. I use "sudo -H -i -u vbox VBoxManage startvm VM_NAME -type headless" to start the VMs on boot
  4. This worked fine in 4.1.6-74727

Note: Log looks to indicate an OpenGL issue. If I try and do line 3 after loging in, no good, but if I launch a GUI, line 3 works - Seems to confirm that the change in 4.1.8 seems to be related to having a local GUI.

Does this work again if you downgrade to VBox 4.1.6?

Hi Frank - Yep - I'm back on 4.1.6 and it is working as it used to.

PS: Took a bit to revert as the extensions had gone up to 4.1.8 and then the VMs wouldn't run under 4.1.8 - finally figured out how to uninstall the extensions - not looking to upgrade again till I KNOW this is fixed.
