Virtualbox Crashes on Mac Host When Using OpenGL 3D
|Reported by:||sierpins||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
When I use 3D applications with the 3D acceleration turned on, I sometimes get crashes. The VM will freeze for a few seconds, the spinning colored pinwheel will animate, and then the VM will close without displaying the standard Mac OS X application crash dialog. I have attached a log of the VM from a session that crashed.
I was running YSFlight ( http://homepage3.nifty.com/ysflight/aircraftsoft/aircraftsofte.html) on a Windows guest with Intel VT-x enabled with nested paging. I am running this on an early 2008 Macbook with Intel GMA X3100 graphics.
When I run Virtualbox on a Windows Vista host on the same Macbook with a Windows 7 guest with 3D acceleration and YSFlight, I don't experience this problem as often. I have also noted crashes with an Ubuntu Linux 8.04 guest with 3D acceleration in the new Virtualbox 2.2.0 release.
