Description

After upgrading from VirtualBox 4.3.12 to 4.3.20, attempting to run a QML application results in the error: "Could not initialize GLX". There appears to be a problem with OpenGL in the guest extensions.

I was unable to reproduce this locally with my first attempts. Would you be able to install debugging symbols for the relevant Ubuntu system libraries and a copy of the 4.3.21 Additions with debugging symbols<1> (you will need to manually execute the .run file on the ISO image) and get a back-trace? Thanks!

Hi,

I have been experiencing a similar problem so tried installing the VBoxAdditions that you attached.

I am running Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64-bit in the VM, hosted by Windows 7 64-bit.

The problem I am experiencing with the v4.3.20 VBoxAdditions shows up if I try to run P4V (a perforce client). The output is as follows:

The first thing I get after installing your version of the guest additions is that apport reports that /usr/lib/libgnome-descktop-3-7/check_gl_texture_size crashes with signal 5 in rtThreadGet().

Then if I try to run 4v this also crashes:

chris@chriso-VirtualBox:~$ libGL error: pci id for fd 10: 80ee:beef, driver (null)

!!Assertion Failed!!

Thread=0000000002639250

Don't know if that gets us anywhere? Thanks Chris

With that version, behaviour seems the same as with the 4.3.20 released version. Could you give more detailed instructions on installing debugging symbols and obtaining a backtrace? I don't know how to do either of these things. Thanks Chris

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by michael

I'm afraid I can't tell you where to get symbols for P4V, I assume it is not from the Ubuntu repositories. You can get a back-trace by running your application under gdb:

$ gdb --args <application command line>
[...]
(gdb) run
[...]
[The application encountered a segmentation fault at...]
(gdb) backtrace

I've exactly the same problem. The program runs fine when '3D acceleration' is switched off in the vm settings.

I've compiled the Qt with debug symbols and got the following backtrace from qmlscene.

The problem seems to be in the following part of code (qglxintegration.cpp:103):

XVisualInfo *visualInfo = glXGetVisualFromFBConfig(dpy, config);
if (!visualInfo)
   qFatal("Could not initialize GLX");

I think the contents of the dpy are:

I still have to figure out how to get contents of config variable as gdb gives me <incomplete type> when I try to print it.

Please let me know if I can further help. I'd really like to see this problem fixed.

Hello,

I see the same issues. I've tried many combinations of vritualbox version, guest addition versions, and qt5 versions, but I always get this error: libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo Is anyone familiar with a combination which works with openGL 3D?

Thank you, Ran

As I have stated before, the test of whether 3D pass-through is working is to run glxinfo and see whether the strings contain "Humper" and "Chromium". If so, basic pass-through is working, although many 3D applications will probably not (those applications will usually work, slowly, if 3D pass-through is not working). And if it is working, there are generally lots of confusing errors and warnings.

If you are interested in trying the latest development code (which is still far from fully working), you could try installing these Additions:

https://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.0.51-105168.iso

Development code, so there is always a risk that you may need to repair your virtual machine afterwards, or better: take a snapshot first.
