A few days ago my VirtualBox 2.1.0 manager console no longer started on Fedora 10: it would just hang. I could start individual VM's from the command line using -startvm. Then, I did 'killall imsettings; VirtualBox' and it worked again. I saw a similar report on the VBox forum.

Whoever filed this bug: please post logs as attachments. This page is hard to read.

I have removed the whole crap from the description. gboethius, what exactly does not work for you? Does the VirtualBox GUI failed to start or are you unable to start a VM? andrewz, Please retest this with VirtualBox 2.1.4 because version 2.1.0 is quite old and there are many bugs fixed since this version.

frank: I'd love to try 2.1.4, but there is a serious regression:

andrewz, see that ticket, it's a dkms issue. You might even try VirtualBox 2.2.2.

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by andrewz

VirtualBox 2.2.2 works after I install and then kill X

Does that mean that I can close this bug? Why do you need to kill X? Because of that dkms issue?

comment:7 Changed 7 years ago by andrewz

frank: Yes, I have to kill X for the DKMS issue. I found a way to workaround this bug back in VBOX 2.1.0. IIRC, I fixed it with this tip:

sudo yum remove imsettings im-chooser 'scim*
