Ticket #2307 (closed defect: fixed)
Segfaults crashing GuestOS when starting VBox on other virtual desktop
|Reported by:||kett||Owned by:|
I am running ArchLinux as the host OS. I'm using the Awesome window manager. And I have it set to always start my VBox WindowsXP guest on a certain virtual desktop. The crashes only seem to occur when I start it in a desktop other than the active one.
These are the messages that get written to the system wide log for the crashes. You can see that it's not always to same message:
Sep 23 00:11:16 localhost VirtualBox: segfault at 6000000c8 ip 6000000c8 sp 7fff5b91b8a8 error 14 Sep 23 00:11:59 localhost VirtualBox: segfault at 3000000c0 ip 7ffaf8617804 sp 7fff0343a3f8 error 4 in libQtGui.so.4.4.2[7ffaf842b000+820000] Sep 23 00:14:58 localhost VirtualBox general protection ip:7f76d863ae81 sp:7fffe2aa2a50 error:0 in libQtCore.so.4.4.2[7f76d84fc000+1f8000] Sep 23 00:17:27 localhost VirtualBox: segfault at 7f680467df80 ip 7f680467df80 sp 7fff0cfc4fd8 error 15 Sep 23 00:21:13 localhost VirtualBox general protection ip:7fd22dc84e81 sp:7fff380ec110 error:0 in libQtCore.so.4.4.2[7fd22db46000+1f8000]
I did do core dump for it as well. But the file is 80MB compressed, so I'm not sure how that should be handled.
