Ticket #3709 (closed defect: fixed)
failed to create a new session error
|Reported by:||zebul6||Owned by:|
as i have no help on the forum for my problem http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=16316 my last solution is to ditch virtualbox until it works for me. i fill this bug report for the dev to know it does not work for everybody. may be it is the same bug than Ticket #3568 ?
i upgraded to virtualbox 2.2.0 PUEL and when i run now virtualbox, after it tells me to migrate my configuration files, it begins to throw me errors about 'failed to create a new session'. if i click on details i see a NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED (0x80040154) error code.
it displays that error for each of my VM. if i click ok for each of my VM, i can get the virtualbox GUI running. but i get the same error again if i try to run one of my VM or if i try to create a new virtual drive. this errors even happen with a new user with a clean ~/.VirtualBox and no VM when i try to create a new virtual drive.
i am running 2.6.29 kernel and a self made virtualbox package which allowed to run vbox 2.1.4 sucessfully and without errors.
it seems to happen since i upgraded to kernel 2.6.29 (but other packages have been upgraded too)
running archlinux current(rolling release) as of today 2009-04-12
i checked the perm on /tmp wich are drwxrwxrwt 12 root root 72K avril 12 08:32 /tmp/
