Hello, I upgraded Virtual Box today to fix the NAT bug, and now the VM "aborts" constantly. Old version created a dump file in my home folder, doesn't anymore, attached is the most recent machine log.

Sigh. Could you read before you open a bug report? I don't know what we do wrong as people constantly doing cut'n'paste with log files although we clearly state that the users should not. There is a Attach button.

Regarding your problem: The VBox.log file looks like the VM crashes anyway. Please could you try to generate a  core dump?

First, sorry for not attaching. Second, I tried to run the core dump, but was not successful. Can you provide instructions, or a link?

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by newtonke

I ran the command

$ ulimit -c unlimited $ /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox -startvm "Machine 1"

and got this

Segmentation fault

Please look  here.

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by newtonke

Actually, I did. The only error I got was with

$ sudo echo -n 1 > /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable

I got a permission denied, even though I ran it with sudo

I tried the same VM on a 32bit 8.10 host, same abort.

comment:7 Changed 10 years ago by frank

I've updated the  instructions. Please could you try again with

sudo su
echo -n 1 > /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable
exit

?

Hi guys,

Ok, So i recently upgraded to 2.2.0, to get rid of the NAT bug, too. Now my VM segmentation faults several times a day, as opposed to the once a day on 1.6.X.

I'm on ubuntu hardy with a 64bit host, with a linux guest.

What can I do to help fix this bug?

-Adam

Adam, any chance to send me a core dump? You can contact me at frank _dot_ mehnert _at_ sun _dot_ com and I can tell you an FTP server where you could upload the core dump if necessary.

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by frank

Adam, please check the latest release (2.2.2), it has fixed which might be related to your problem. If VBox still segfaults, please could you send me a core dump, see above?

Replying to newtonke:

Hello newtonke and Adam, What should I do to reproduce this crash?

comment:12 Changed 10 years ago by frank

Adam already told me that he runs phpBBv3 in a VM with port forwarding. His VM crashes after 15-30 minutes. So accessing a web server running in a VM should do it.
