See forum topic 91108<1> and summary. This is possibly due to uname(2) returning non-zero on success on Solaris.

  • Summary changed from VBoxClient --vm-svga fails with "Failed to get kernel name" on Solaris guests to VBoxClient --vm-svga fails with "Failed to get kernel name" on Solaris guests -> fixed after (not in) 6.0.4

Confirmed fixed on the forums. The fix will be in 6.0 Additions test builds after revision 128880, once they are uploaded.

  • Summary changed from VBoxClient --vm-svga fails with "Failed to get kernel name" on Solaris guests -> fixed after (not in) 6.0.4 to VBoxClient --vm-svga fails with "Failed to get kernel name" on Solaris guests -> use VBoxVGA with Solaris

As there are additional problems with VMSVGA and Solaris, and no clear advantage over VBoxVGA (notably no acceleration in Solaris with VMSVGA) I will mark this as "won't fix".

Re-opening this, as it apparently affects Solaris guests using vboxvideo too.
