VirtualBox 1.6 cant start VM (Solaris10 Update4 VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)

Reported by: ts@… Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Solaris


When startinga VM via VirtualBox or VBoxHeadless i get

Unable to load R3 module /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxDD. VBox status code: -102 (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).

Machine/Solaris10u4 is amd64 - 64bit

ldd for shows a problem with LIBDLPI.SO - which only exists as 32-bit library.

I tried to follow a hit in the forum, to dowload a newer SUNWclsr and put and beneath VirtualBox via setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH. It solved the "ldd" error output ( -> not found ) but still i get this "unable to load ..." error.

What is missing? Do i need to upgrade to Sol10update5?

No solution trying to install on Solaris 10 Update 5, error message is the same.

You may be missing and such. If you have a reduced installation of Solaris 10 you won't be have these libraries. You need to install Solaris 10 with a working X server for running VirtualBox GUI.

The libraries are in SUNWxorg-mesa package (but may have other dependencies).

If you didn't install the Desktop Software Group while installing Solaris 10, then you should probably re-install it (or find a way to install it).

@ramshankar :

  • no, the virtualbox gui works perfectly with sol10, starting a VM gives the error.
  • i have a fullinstall of sol10
  • i also tried to start a VM with VBoxHeadless,which doesn't need any gui / libGL etc

-- problem is loadling the -- ldd gives for : => (file not found) -- in sol10 under /usr/lib is a 32bit , in /lib/64 not. And there the problem begins...

Are you sure you put the correction version of libdlpi in the correct place? 64-bit libdlpi should go under amd64 subdirectories of /lib and /usr/lib respectively.

To check if you really have the 64-bit version, do "file /lib/amd64/" and it should show you "ELF 64-bit...".

Once you have the lib in place it should work.

no amd64 here, Solaris10_u4 x86 running 32bit on a virtual machine

ldd /opt/VirtualBox/ => /lib/ (SUNW_1.1) => (version not found)

/lib/ pvs -s; SUNWprivate_1.1;

SUNWxorg-mesa installed and service ogl-default is online I had to set a symlink to /usr/X11R6/lib/ maybe VirtualBox should be linked to /usr/lib/ ???

xstat(2, "/usr/sfw/lib/", 0x08046BB0) Err#2 ENOENT xstat(2, "/lib/", 0x08046BB0) Err#2 ENOENT xstat(2, "/usr/lib/", 0x08046BB0) Err#2 ENOENT VirtualBox: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory

Yes it's normal to have those libs. libGL and libGLCore get pulled into the link, ldd VirtualBox | grep GL: =>	 /usr/lib/64/ =>	 /usr/lib/64/

A link in the folder where the linker looks for the lib should be fine. So yes /usr/lib/64 link is required.

comment:8 Changed 11 years ago by ramshankar

Since you're on 32-bit it that would be /usr/lib and not /usr/lib/64.

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by ts@…

@ramshankar : The in /lib is 32bit. in /lib/64 there was none. I dowloaded from somewhere a SUNWcslr package, stripped out the and and it into /lib/64. That solved the ldd error - but the "Unable to load R3 module /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxDD. VBox status code: -102 (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)." still exists. Must be something else be wrong too - maybe this lib of this package doesnt fit to sol10u4.

Did you get it run in sol10???? If yes, please desribe your environment

using this workaround solves the problem:

Problem is the missing 64-bit

@innotec will you or the SUN solaris team fix this missing 64-bit lib problem?

comment:11 Changed 11 years ago by syalcin

I'm having the same problem When i use VBoxHeadless but VirtualBox works fine. This is what i'm getting: VBoxHeadless -s "W2k3 Server"VirtualBox Headless Interface 1.6.0 (C) 2008 Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights reserved

Listening on port 3389 Error: failed to start machine. Error message: Unable to load R3 module /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxDD. VBox status code: -102 (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)

I have already applied the libdlpi and this is the kernel I'm using: 5.10 Generic_127112-05 i86pc i386 i86pc

anyone else having the same problem?

Reopen if it still happens with 1.6.2 please. That release should work better with Solaris 10.

comment:13 Changed 11 years ago by ts@…

Where do i get VirtualBox 1.6.2 ? On the download i see only 1.6.0.

comment:14 Changed 11 years ago by elhefe1982
