VBoxManage --compact crashes on Mac OS X => --compact broken in 2.2.2

Reported by: egorfine Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 2.2.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

What I did:

VBoxManage  modifyhd Ubuntu8.10.vdi  --compact

Ubuntu8.10.vdi is a fresh install, file is about 5 gigs size, expandable image, 20 gigs.

OS = Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.6 with all updates.

What I saw:

trust:HardDisks egor$ VBoxManage  modifyhd Ubuntu8.10.vdi  --compact
VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 2.2.2

trust:HardDisks egor$ 

And then Mac OS X crash reporter immediately pops up. Log file attached. 100% repeatable.

Hi,
I have the same problem using VBox 2.2.2 on Windows XP SP3 host and Ubuntu 9.04 guest.
I executed command:
"C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox\VBoxManage" modifyhd "C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\.VirtualBox\HardDisks\Ubuntu_9_04_Desktop.vdi" --compact and VBox crashed.
Regards

  • Summary changed from VBoxManage --compact crashes on Mac OS X to VBoxManage --compact crashes on Mac OS X => --compact broken in 2.2.2

See the last comment in #2833 -- unfortunately --compact is broken in 2.2.2 due to a typo. Please don't use this command with this version.
