VirtualBox 2.1.2 crashes everytime after the Windows guest boot

Reported by: Patrick Decat Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2
Keywords: crash Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


I just upgraded from VirtualBox 2.1.0 to 2.1.2 and it now crashes a few seconds after every boot of the guest.

I do not even have time to upgrade the Windows guest additions.

The system logs:

me@mydesktop:~$ grep VirtualBox /var/log/*.log

Some information about my system:

$ uname -a
Linux mydesktop 2.6.27-11-generic #1 SMP Thu Jan 22 17:22:40 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

$ cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 8.10 \n \l

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list
deb intrepid non-free

I have core files that I'll be uploading to the FTP.

Regards, Patrick.

I managed to boot the Windows guest in safe mode and install the 2.1.2 guest additions.

That does not solve the crashes:

And another:

Did you wrote that you were about to upload the core dumps to our FTP server?

comment:6 by Patrick Decat, 15 years ago

Sure, it's up : virtualbox-2.1_2.1.2-41885_Ubuntu_intrepid_i386-core.6253.7z

comment:7 by Patrick Decat, 15 years ago

I downgraded to 2.1.0-41146_Ubuntu_intrepid for now (had to revert the XML configuration files by hand).

Thanks for the core dump. This is actually a duplicate of #3123.
