VirtualBox

Ticket #3199 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 5 years ago

S10 U6 patched up on 11/24, not working with VBoxHeadless => Fixed in SVN

Description

When launching VirtualBox headless, the VM does not start. If you look at the attached log file, it hangs at this line: 00:00:00.305 Initializing host clipboard service

Everything after that log message is after I CONTROL-C the program.

I'm launching it like this: root:=> VBoxHeadless -startvm billing

I see no errors on the screen.

If I launch it on the console (JDS) things work great. The log file for a successful launch looks the same up to the "Initializing host clipboard service" and continues just fine.

I used the GUI to disable the clipboard service and the virtual machine still does not start. The log file looks exactly the same as attached with the exception of the clipboard messages missing. So it does not appear to be tied to the clipboard.

What happens if you start the VBoxHeadless session like this:

unset DISPLAY
VBoxHeadless ...

I'm not sure which shell you are using so the command for unsetting the DISPLAY environment variable might be different.

That worked around the issue.
