I assume you installed the 32-bit Linux generic package?

Please disable your update checker. The waitpid system call is waiting for the wrong process ID. This shouldn't happen of course.

  • Ticket #3901 – Description

    initial v2  
    11VirtualBox freezes on startup for 2 to 6 startups until it finally starts. I've got to kill it with xkill or killall and restart it before the GUI shows up correctly, else I only see a gray square. I will attach a strace and core dump file of the frozen state. 
    22 
    3 Here is a backtrace when frozen. 
    4 #0  0xffffe424 in __kernel_vsyscall () 
    5 #1  0xb7f7b12b in waitpid () from /lib/libpthread.so.0 
    6 #2  0xb781c6d3 in VBoxGlobal::platformInfo () from /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.so 
    7 #3  0xb78b8c26 in VBoxUpdateDlg::search () from /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.so 
    8 #4  0xb78215a0 in VBoxGlobal::showUpdateDialog () from /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.so 
    9 #5  0xb78058cb in TrustedMain () from /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.so 
    10 #6  0x080496c9 in ?? () 
    11 #7  0x08048d7b in ?? () 
    12 #8  0xb7d635fe in __libc_start_main () from /lib/libc.so.6 
    13 #9  0x08048c71 in ?? () 
    14 (gdb)

    163And the strace gets blocked at waitpid and won't move at all, even after 15 minutes.
