USB Disconnect causes VM to abort

Reported by: RayC Owned by:
Component: USB Version: VirtualBox 4.3.14
Keywords: USB disconnect Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


Guest - Windows 8.1 64-bit Host - Linux Mint 17 Quiana

VirtualBox log added, although there is nothing notable around the time of failure in the log.

[1383007.564892] EMT-0[24455]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fbdfd68a7f1 sp 00007fbe2d221b90 error 6 in[7fbdfd5de000+254000]

To reproduce: 1) I am attaching an iPhone 5c. I have a USB filter setup for vendor ID 05ac so it automatically is attached to VirtualBox once I plug in the device. 2) Start VM 3) Connect USB device 4) Unplug USB device - segfault occurs and VirtualBox goes bye-bye (technical term...).

This does not happen to me if I don't have USB 2.0 support enabled...but then again my device won't work without USB 2.0 support enabled either (identify fails if I don't have 2.0 enabled).

I am also seeing USB disconnect causing very frequent aborts due to a segault. When trying to restore iPad with iTunes, it is occurinning almost always. When iPad reboots the virtualbox almost always dies. This also happens often but not always if I remove the USB cable from iPad. At the end of log I see typically line like:

Reaper: Pid XXXX (YYYY) was signalled: 11 (0xb)

Using WinXP, vbox 4.3 on Debian testing.

I was just about to add a ticket for this!
Host is Ubuntu 14.04, guest is win7-64bit
device is a Logitech Webcam I use for video conferencing.
Worked fine as pass-through in 4.2.12, broke in 4.3.14
still works as web-cam pass-through at low rez.
It connects, updates about 1 frame every 3 seconds. after about 15min the guest BSOD's.
If I try to disconnect it the VM aborts with the same error as above.

I also have this problem after upgrading to VirtualBox 4.3.14. This did not happen with 4.3.12. In /var/log/syslog I find:

Aug  4 22:10:51 hppb kernel: [65858.534563] usb 3-6: USB disconnect, device number 17
Aug  4 22:10:51 hppb kernel: [65858.710715] EMT-0[16540]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fac173ec7f1 sp 00007fac4d6a7b60 error 6 in[7fac17340000+254000]
Aug  4 22:10:51 hppb kernel: [65858.749427] vboxnetflt: 0 out of 175 packets were not sent (directed to host)

In my case, I disconnecting a Tom Tom GO 500 GPS device (it's seen as a network adapter by the OS).

Guest: Windows XP SP3 Host: Linux Mint 16 KDE VirtualBox 4.3.14 r95030 installed from Oracle PPA.

comment:4 by Lyall Pearce, 10 years ago

Ticket relates to the same problem.

comment:6 by lavacano, 10 years ago

Confirming 4.3.12 works. nothing changed in virtualmachine only host software and kernel modules.

comment:7 by Fred Houweling, 9 years ago

I can confirm that this exists on my setup also. Fedora 20 Host, Win 7 Guest Same version as above ticket. I found no indication in the logs as to what went wrong. Occured twice so far, USB Memory disconnect and Digital Camera disconnect.

Same here, Ubuntu 12.04 as Host, Ubuntu 14.04 /Windows 7 guest (independent from guest os?) VirtualBox 4.3.14, crashes on unplug of a mapped USB device. Does not crash if mapping to guest removed before unplug.

comment:9 by RayC, 9 years ago

I installed 4.3.16 and it appears to have resolved the problem. I first installed 4.3.16 and the 4.3.16 USB 2.0 extension, but left the guest addition at 4.3.12. I was able to plug/unplug my iPhone without the VM aborting. I then installed 4.3.16 guest additions, rebooted and was still able to plug/unplug my iPhone at will without a crash.

I assume this line in the change log probably fixed it:

  • USB: fixed several regressions from 4.3.14 (bug #13320)

Replying to ImEdwardo:

Just an fyi, Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 still not working properly in 4.3.16 I have not had it crash yet, but still only updates the images once every 5-10 seconds. reverted back to 4.3.12 and it is working properly.

comment:11 by RayC, 9 years ago

Tried upgrading my iPhone to iOS 8 and when it put the iPhone into recovery mode VirtualBox froze up. Had to kill -9 it... Went back to 4.3.12 and the upgrade was successful. So still something "broken" in 4.3.16 around this. In this case I suppose it looks like a quick disconnect and reconnect of the device.

comment:12 by RayC, 9 years ago

4.3.18 appears to have really cured this. Guess bug 13400 may have been a duplicate? Given this ticket is still marked 'new' I assume bugs are worked by highest number first or something? :-)

I'm still experiencing guest aborts when de-selecting VirtualBox's Device menu --> "USB Devices" --> "PNY Technologies USB 2.0 FD". (I.e. a 2GB USB thumbdrive.)

Host: CentOS 5.11 x86_64 (running VirtualBox-4.3-4.3.18_96516_el5-1.x86_64) Guest: Fedora 19 x86_64 (with Guest Additions 4.3.18 installed)

I'm willing to upload the /var/log/messages of the guest & host and the guest's VBox.log file, but none of them show any errors before the guest abort. If there are debug options I can enable, I'm willing to gather more logs and/or test new releases.

comment:14 by Mauro Molinari, 9 years ago

@RayC: I think yours is another issue, because the issue here is guest stop when the device is physically disconnected and not when unchecked from the devices menu. You may open a new bug I think.

comment:15 by aeichner, 8 years ago

Resolution: obsolete
Status: newclosed

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
