VBoxSVC crashing, VirtualBox broken in several ways

Reported by: CaptSaltyJack Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.3.28

Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


It's tough to explain what's going on, but here's a post I made on the forum which has screenshots and explanations:

Basically everything is broken. I'm unable to add new guests, and the ones I load up act oddly. It would be great if someone could walk me through some debugging/troubleshooting steps. Something is badly broken here, even after a complete uninstall and fresh install.

Indeed we would need a crash report or better a core dump of VBoxSVC.

After another clean uninstall, I got VBox working again. Though I'd like to point out that the uninstall script somehow didn't remove everything, because after running that and reinstalling VBox, I still saw my VMs listed.

So this time I ran CleanMyMac to uninstall VBox and all related files, and then ran the official VBox uninstall script just as a second pass. That seemed to do the trick. After reinstalling after that, things are great now.

But feel free to check out the crash log anyway to see what might've been the culprit here.

It's broken again. Very randomly. I didn't change anything at all.
