black screen after starting windows guest on Fedora 11

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello, I've used a windows guest on Fedora systems for several years without any problems. However, now when I try to start the guest, in the time I should see login screen I get only a black screen, nothing more. It has worked before, it is probably not related to VirtualBox update but to some Fedora updates (I use the guest once per month or so, hence I'm not able to track this in more detail).

I forgot to mention that starting the windows guest in rescue mode works.

This problem still remains even on a fresh new installation of Fedora 12, any hints what might be wrong?

The Fedora 12 problem is handled in #6198.

I wanted to try out the patch, but I have no such file like /usr/src/vboxvideo-3.1.4/vboxvideo_drm.c installed (I use the VirtualBox package from the yum repository) -- what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!
