VirtualBox 2.0.x GUI doesn't display

Reported by: dramaley Owned by:

Host type: Linux


The "VirtualBox" command for VB 2.0.x on Debian amd64 never displays a GUI. Virtual machines may be started directly with a command such as "VirtualBox -startvm 'Windows XP'", but if any GUI buttons are clicked VirtualBox crashes with this error:

[15860.885258] VirtualBox[8336]: segfault at 7fff9155bfe8 ip 7fc587117f54 sp 7fff9155bff0 error 6 in[7fc58706b000+230000]

I do have the QT libraries installed, as well as all of the VirtualBox package dependencies. I've verified that both VirtualBox and QT are 64 bit.

VirtualBox 1.6.x works fine and is what i am using for now.

I originally posted about this  in the forums, and was encouraged to submit a ticket.

Could you provide a core dump? Is that Debian Sid or Lenny?

I'm running Debian Testing, or Lenny.

Strangely, I reinstalled VirtualBox 2.0.4 and it is working just fine! The GUI displays OK, and i can't get it to crash simply by clicking buttons. So, I can no longer replicate the problem. I'm not sure what has changed in my system since it didn't work and now when it does, other than temporarily installing VB 1.6.6 and then today reinstalling 2.0.4.
