Corrupted graphics on Linux host -> duplicate of #3095

Reported by: Octagon31415 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: host support
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.2 Keywords: graphics Linux
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux

Description

Slackware Linux current, radeonhd video driver, AMD 690 (R600) integrated video, XFCE. When VB starts the original splash screen is light green. When guest starts, the console or Windows startup screen is transparent, as if compiz thinks it is inactive window, and some areas are not redrawn, like in Windows profile chooser white background does not disappear when another profile is selected. When GUI starts, the window is opaque, but graphics is distorted.

Absolutely nothing changed compared to 3.0.0.

Does doing

export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1

on the command line before starting VirtualBox help?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by Octagon31415

Yes,

XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 VirtualBox

runs nicely. It also disables the 3D Acceleration checkbox and the 3D acceleration itself.

Could you perhaps also provide your VirtualBox log file and give us the exact command line that you use when you see the problem? Thanks.

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by Octagon31415

I attach VBox.good.log.bz2 - VM started, addins updated, VM closed- and VBox.bad.log.bz2 - VM started and closed by ACPI shutdown after a failed attempt to close with the mouse.

Problem command

VirtualBox

It is usr/bin/VirtualBox - a link to /opt/VirtualBox/VBox.sh (as created by the installer).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate

This is a duplicate of #4430 . We have found the issue and fixed it in SVN.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by michael

I have posted an update on #4430, including test builds which include fixes for this issue (without preventing 3D from working of course). It would be great if you could give it a try and let me know (on #4430) whether it works for you. Thanks!
