Description (last modified by sandervl73) (diff)
Configuration: Using Solaris 10 u6 (1008) 64-bit guest (zfs file system) on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit Host running on 2.4 GHZ Core 2 Quad core (Q6600) in Shuttle SX38P2 with 8GB RAM. Windows Vista install is fully patched by MS Update. Using xVM VirtualBox v2.1.2 installed over a previous xVM VirtualBox v2.1.0 install. Guest set with 2048MB base memory, 128MB video memory, ACPI enabled, IO ACPI enabled, VT-x Enabled, Nested Paging disabled, PAE/NX disabled, 3D acc disabled, NIC set to Host Interface.
Steps performed and errors noted ----
1) Installed Solaris (full OEM install on zfs file system on 40GB compressible disk) - no problems occured; 2) Updated resolv.conf & nsswitch.conf to allow DNS resolution registered installation - network/internet access functional; 3) Rebooted - login screen displayed; 4) Registered system with Sun - successful; 5) Updated install via Sun update service - successful; 6) Rebooted - login screen displayed; 7) Logged in as root and shut down system; 8) Replicated virtual disk with VBoxManage cloneHD; 9) Created new virtual machine with replicated vdi file; 10) Booted new system; 11) Installed Guest additions - no errors indicated in output of package install; 12) Rebooted - Xserver failed to start; 13) Performed maintenance login, examined Xserver log, indicated no modes specified in xorg.conf, examined /etc/X11/xorg.conf and found no modes specified, edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf to add modes for display (based on a fully functional Solaris 10 u6 32-bit VBox guest machine); 14) Reboot - login screen displayed; 15) Logged in as root - Video and mouse integration not functional; 16) Examined Xorg.0.log file - found multiple occurances of the following errors:
(EE) VBoxVideo(0): Failed to obtain the last resolution requested by the guest, rc= -36
(EE) VBoxVideo(0): Unable to determine whether the virtual machine supports mouse pointer integration - request initialization failed with return code -36
Error querying host mouse position! rc = -38
17) Tried various combinations of enabling and disabling of IO APIC, 3D acceleration with same results 18) Based on previous experience with 32bit Solaris, have noted that not all components are actually 64bit, so replaced /opt/VirtualBoxAddtions/amd64 contents with 32bit versions and received virtually identical output in Xorg.0.log file - same results. 19) Replicated original disk again (multiple times) and tried installing previous Guest Additions, each on a new clean replication (v2.1.0, v2.0.6, v2.0.4, v2.0.2) - same result
Note that this appears to be a problem with 64bit Solaris 10 guests only. I have created several 32bit Solaris 10 guests with guest additions on which video and mouse integration works fine. I have tried this multiple times with 64bit Solaris 10 and always had the same failure (hence, why I have started replicating the vdi file after the initial install - I got tired of redoing the install everytime the guest additions trashed the machine).
