Description

Using OpenSolaris (SXCE) snv_117, VirtualBox 3.0.2 and 3.0.4 dump core with a memory fault when you attempt to run VBoxQtconfig. (Earlier versions are untested.)

Attached is a demangled stack trace (for some value of demangled...):

Change History

Thanks for the bug report, this is a bug with Qt choosing a style that's not compatible with the system (missing files etc.). To workaround this run it as

VBoxQtconfig -style plastic

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by lewellyn

It appears that Plastique is the default theme for VirtualBox on Solaris. I attempted to switch to Cleanlooks to better match the default OS theme, and this kills the app (VBoxQtconfig, if I keep poking in it; else, VirtualBox itself when I go to do anything "useful" in it) with an error akin to:

X Error: BadName (named color or font does not exist) 15
  Major opcode: 45 (X_OpenFont)
  Resource id:  0x58000ba

To eliminate the need for us (Open)Solaris users (who ought to be using JDS/Gnome rather than CDE these days...) to make the app look like it's not from 10 or 15 years ago (and stick out like a sore thumb...), would it be unreasonable to request that the default theme be changed to Cleanlooks with colors more in-line with the operating system's default themes?

I'm using color values of:

PaletteHSVRGB
3-D Effects225 4 247243 244 247
Window Background228 5 237232 233 237

I realise the colors don't quite match the Solaris and OpenSolaris GNOME themes, but they "look" "right". And that's all that really matters. ;)

In some hours, I can poke at the core I'm getting ater changing the theme, if you wish.

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

Re-open if this is still relevant with latest VBox versions and Solaris.
