Unable to start, set settings and even delete VMs on FC6

Reported by: emedrano Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.6
Keywords: Callee RC FC6 Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other

Description

After a long process to install and run VirtualBox, finally it runs but i cannot start/configure/delete any VM on FC6. I get a "VirtualBox - Error" window containing the text "Failed to create new session" and "Callee RC: 0x80040154". This window appears in the final step while creating a Windows 2000 VM, while trying to start/configure/delete a DOS or Other/Unknown VM.

I cannot spot any problems in the logs so far. What problems did you have installing VirtualBox on FC6? Does there a directory ~/.VirtualBox exist? Could you post its contents?

I have this problem too, I hope to find help here...

comment:3 Changed 14 years ago by frank

A good start would be to answer my previous question.

Great, thank you for helping me. .VirtualBox exist. It contains Machines - empty dir VBoxSVC.log - empty file VDI - empty dir VirtualBox.xml contains: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?> <!-- InnoTek VirtualBox Global Configuration --> <VirtualBox xmlns=" http://www.innotek.de/VirtualBox-settings" version="1.2-linux">

Please try 1.3.8.

The same problem is present and at version 1.3.8. The program has not created any magazines, only the message with precisely same mistake. I apply contents of file VirtualBox.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?> <!-- InnoTek VirtualBox Global Configuration --> <VirtualBox xmlns=" http://www.innotek.de/VirtualBox-settings" version="1.2-linux">

I have the same problem.. I use Fedora Core 6 and want to make Windows XP Virtual Machine

But, I can not even start, setting or delete VMs.

This is my VirtualBox.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?> <!-- InnoTek VirtualBox Global Configuration --> <VirtualBox xmlns=" http://www.innotek.de/VirtualBox-settings" version="1.2-linux">

</ExtraData> <MachineRegistry>

</MachineRegistry> <DiskRegistry>

<HardDisks>

<HardDisk type="normal" uuid="{4e440ab3-9336-4b21-b248-94af624799d4}">

It's because Fedora Core 6 doesn't ship with the xalan_c library. We'll include it in future builds. For now you could try to install VBox using the .run file as the library is in there as well.

Replying to sandervl73:

I have been tried the .run file and had this problem.. I use Virtual Box 1.3.8

comment:10 Changed 13 years ago by sandervl73

Did you uninstall VBox first and then did a proper install of the .run file?

comment:11 follow-up: ↓ 12 Changed 13 years ago by rat29a

I uninstalled and installed VirtualBox and now it is returning /opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/VirtualBox: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/VBoxVMM.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied after this it failed to start

Thank you all for helping

Replying to rat29a:

/opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/VirtualBox: error while loading shared libraries:

This is because you have SELinux enabled, either disable it or "chcon -R -t texrel_shlib_t /opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/*.so".

As for this ticket, I've installed *only* via the .run file and have the same "Callee RC" error. I've even compiled Xerces-C and Xalan-C libraries from source to no avail.

comment:13 Changed 13 years ago by frank

The next VirtualBox release will provide at least an rhel5 .rpm and we had the same problem there. Are you sure that all *.so files have the texrel_shlib_t context set? I mean, in /opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/components, too? Please check with 'ls -ZR'.

If you verified this, please look for SELinux messages in /var/log/audit/audit.log.

comment:14 Changed 13 years ago by kiilerix

VirtualBox suddenly started giving this error. It turned out to be SElinux. Some package upgrade or restorecon must have removed my handwaving.

So, note to self: chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/VBox* /opt/VirtualBox-1.3.8/components/VBox*.so

comment:15 Changed 13 years ago by sandervl73

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

1.4.0 should support SELinux properly.
