Mouse Wheel inoperative after hibernate

Reported by: bozonius Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.2.12
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux


Returning from hibernation while running LXDE session on Mageia3 Linux results in mouse wheel no longer having any effect. This is reproducible in VirtualBox, but not on real hardware.

Hibernation under LXDE works for PCLinuxOS in VM, and all mouse functionality appears to be restored. Host for both of these VMs is Scientific 6.3. All host and guest systems are patched to the latest vendor updates. All environments are using VB4.2.12 with the latest GA and extensions. So far, the host and other VM guests are not experiencing this problem or other problems.

We are not sure at this time if this is a more widespread problem with VirtualBox, or a more narrow problem with Mageia's LXDE configuration and/or hibernation support. This bug is filed in case VirtualBox support is aware of potential issues that could cause this scenario, possibly in limited cases.

Also, the shared file mounts are no longer working, even via manual mounting.

In addition to the loss of mouse wheel function, I also note that file shares that were mounted prior to hibernation are no longer available. vboxsf and vboxguest are still loaded, however, even after hibernation.

This issue has also been added to Mageia's bug tracker as 10541, and referenced to this ticket.

VirtualBox Guest Additions were installed from the Mageia repository Virtualbox Guest Additions package rather than being dynamically rebuilt at boot time with dkms. The above scenario was not tested on dkms or manually-built GA.
