Description

I normally launch this VM fullscreen. It gave no issues up until v5.1.24. In v5.1.26, it crashes unless I run it in windowed mode.

Attachments

VBoxLogs.zip Download (52.3 KB) - added by dvisser 3 years ago.
VBox.log files, one for the crash while starting the desktop in fullscreen mode, the other successfully launching in windowed mode then shutting down

Crashes are guaranteed shortly after VM start.

A VBox.log.zip would definitely help. Actually if you could attach two 1) full-screen and 2) windowed mode, it could help a lot more.

Well, in attempting to reproduce this for a log file, it is no longer happening. The crashes were happening for every launch until I switched from Full Screen mode to windowed mode. Now that I switched back to full screen mode, the crashes are no longer happening.

Bug just reared its head again. I'm attaching a zip of the requested VBox.log files.

Might be related to the AC'97 problem in #16959. Could you verify if the latest test build fixed your problem?

I use this VM for work a lot, so don't want to rock the boat with a test build. I looked at the linked tracker item, and have disabled sound in my VM, which I don't use anyway. If the crash ever happens in full screen again, then I'll let you know.

Test builds are not that scary as they sound ;). Think of them as "intermediate" builds in between the official releases. They're as stable as they can be, stable enough that the developers accept bug reports against them. A small excerpt from the Test Builds page (please read the whole thing):

Regularly installing test builds and using them in your day-to-day work is one of the best ways you can help us improve the VirtualBox user experience.

Even the confirmation that the issue has been resolved is really valuable information...
