Ticket #3437 (closed defect: fixed)
Guest OS hangs with "Starting virtual machine" when 3D acceleration selected -> Fixed in SVN.
|Reported by:||timkeen||Owned by:|
This problem is identical to, and in fact was mentioned in, bug report #2857. However, it appears that thread went the way of suggesting the problem was only related to host networking and was subsequently fixed. That bug (related to version 2.1.0) has been closed and marked resolved. I am currently experiencing and can reproduce this problem under 2.1.4. The host OS is Windows XP, Service Pack 2. The guest OS seems to be irrelevant. I've tried launching Unbuntu, BeOS, FreeDos and Windows vms, and they all seem to launch successfully once, but will hang again and again if 3D acceleration is turned on. Networking can be turned on or off, and it doesn't change the behavior. If I turn off 3D acceleration, however, they launch successfully time and again. I created a new vm, mounted a Windows XP iso and a new, empty vdi, and it launched successfully with 3D turned on, once, after freshly booting the host. However, subsequent launches of the new vm hang. Output of the log is attached.
I can turn networking on or off and it will not launch unless I either (a) reboot the host, or (b) turn off 3D acceleration. I have not tried this using a Linux host.
- Summary changed from Guest OS hangs with "Starting virtual machine" when 3D acceleration selected to Guest OS hangs with "Starting virtual machine" when 3D acceleration selected -> Fixed in SVN.
