Description

I'm trying to start an headless session of debian on Mac host system.
I'm getting this:

antmat@antmat-laptop-2 ~ $ /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxHeadless -s debian2
Oracle VM VirtualBox Headless Interface 4.1.8
(C) 2008-2011 Oracle Corporation
All rights reserved.

FreeTSD: failed to destroy key: Undefined error: 0
Segmentation fault: 11

This started after updating VirtualBox from 4.1.6 to 4.1.8 r75467. In 4.1.6 it was OK.

Host: Mac OS X 10.7.2
guest: Debian 64 bit Wheezy(testing)
VirtualBox 4.1.8 r75467

Hmm, there are some problems with 3D.

Getting this too for a while now. MacOS 10.7.3 (64bit), VirtualBox 4.1.12r77245, "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack" installed (same version).

As soon as I enable 3D Acceleration ("accelerate3d"), I'm getting the same error (both for 32bit and 64bit guests). Starting the same VM (with accelerate3d=on) via the GUI works just fine.

This is still happening with v4.1.14 and MacOS 10.7.4. Anybody got an idea on this? The workaround is pretty easy:

VBoxManage modifyvm [VM] --accelerate3d off

...but I wonder if this can be fixed somehow?

According to this post from 2009 (!), this is expected behaviour:

In short: VBoxHeadless & accelerate3d=on don't mix. Maybe a better (more descriptive) error message is in order, to avoid tickets like this. Hm?
