Crashes on 64-bit kernel with 3D acceleration enabled

Reported by: Parasyte Owned by:
Priority: major Component: 3D support
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


Host is running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.1 under the 64-bit kernel:

parasyte@Frylock:~$ uname -a Darwin Frylock.local 10.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0: Fri Jul 31 22:46:25 PDT 2009; root:xnu-1456.1.25~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

Guest is running Windows XP SP3.

Enabling or disabling 3D acceleration causes a crash. (See crash log.) Restarting VirtualBox shows the 3D acceleration status as "Enabled" -- Running GPU Caps Viewer shows OpenGL version 1.1, instead of the expected 2.0

Booting the Host into its 32-bit kernel allows 3D acceleration to work, and does not crash when enabling/disabling the option.

Same issue when host is Ubuntu 64-bit. Disabling 3D acceleration "solves" the problem.

comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by Parasyte

The crashing seems to be fixed in version 3.0.8. Unfortunately, 3D acceleration still does not work under the 64-bit kernel (OS X host). Using the 32-bit kernel, all is well.

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

Please open another ticket if the 3D support is still not working with VBox 3.0.10.

With the crash solved, the issue of 3D support not working still exists in 3.0.10. Taking this to Ticket #5352.
