VirtualBox[669]: segfault at error 6 in

Reported by: Katana__ Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.20 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


Arch Linux host (fully up to date, running systemd + openbox) trying to run a Windows XP SP3 guest. Doing something slightly odd, but not very - running Virtualbox under its own x server, by way of a special .xinitrc line. I'll email a link to my .xinitrc line in my dotfiles github repo with the core dump (which is just under 5mb compressed with bzip2). Segfaults are occurring within minutes of booting up the guest system while in its own X server, but it doesn't seem to happen when started while running under openbox.

Emailing the core dump obtained in a few minutes.

Coredump en route via gmail servers, subject title is: COREDUMP for ticket 10865 - "VirtualBox: segfault at error 6 in"

Thanks for the core dump. As already written in private email, a core dump can only help if it was taken with a package from this website (e.g. the universal Linux .run installer).

Sent in another core dump a while ago after the same crash had happened on the official builds. Going to install .22 here in a bit and give it a shot.

I just managed to get the segfault to happen yet again, during a Windows update for XP - this time it was running under openbox, and not bare-metal under the X server. Might be related to a specific windows update, I can't tell by the behavior.
