Video problems with VBoxAdditons in SLES 10

Reported by: Yann Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux

Description

I installed the VBox additions on Suse Enterprise Linux Server 10 (SLES 10) and got green pixels/black screen instead the login screen after rebooting. In #vbox they told me this could be because I have a 6.9.0 X server but vbox installed the 7.0.0 module. I got everything back by recovering xorg.conf.back.

Here are some images showing the error and the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log:  http://yann.sciency.net/VBoxBug/

I was unable to reproduce this. Could you please run "lsmod | grep box" on the guest to make sure that the VirtualBox kernel modules are loaded? (This should not happen even if they are not loaded, but it would help to know :) ). And could you also attach /etc/X11/xorg.conf from the guest to this ticket? Thanks.

I have this exact same problem. I have VirtualBox 2.1.4 running on an openSuse 11.1 host, and am running SLES 10SP2 as the guest. Have also tried version 2.1.2 with the same result. After recovering xorg.conf.bak, as descibed above. I compared the running xorg.conf, with the failing one from vboxadditions. I noted that it uses two different drivers, namely vboxmouse for the mouse, and vboxvideo for the graphics card device. lsmod shows that neither of these are loaded as kernel modules, and modprobe returns a FATAL Module not found error.

Failing xorg.conf attached below.

I have this problem too. I have a Windows XP SP3 host and SLED 10 SP2 guest with all the patches. After initial install and patching I installed the vbox extensions and on reboot the graphical login screen was blank. copying back the original xorg.conf files fixed things. This is Vbox version, 2.1.4

VBox 3.2.0 was extensively tested with all versions of openSUSE (10.2 and up), and is expected to work with SLES, too.

Please retry with VBox 3.2.x
