Large number of Segfaults in VBoxSVC

Reported by: James Lucas Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.0.10

Guest type: other Host type: other


I have started getting a serious number of segfaults from VBoxSVC on a RHEL5.4 (x86_64) running version 3.0.10 of VBox. The segfaults happened now and then with 3.0.4 but they are happening at greater occurrence in 3.0.10. Errors are happening from a automated management script which is generally running a list vms command or a showvminfo command.

Example segfaults.

VBoxSVC[13776]: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 0000000000000000 rsp 000000004182fdd8 error 14
VBoxSVC[18613] trap invalid opcode rip:12979ac0 rsp:40244dd8 error:0
VBoxSVC[28408] general protection rip:bb8f5b1 rsp:4148bea8 error:0
VBoxSVC[22764]: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 00002b0b8227955c rsp 0000000040908de0 error 4
VBoxSVC[19399]: segfault at 0000000000000079 rip 00000035308fe794 rsp 0000000040fd6dd8 error 6

Sometimes the output of VBoxManage list vms generates the output "ERROR: 0 bytes read from child process" after the logo output and before listing the vms which may be related. No VMs are running at that time so no VBox.log files.

A VBox.log file of such a session is missing. If you could provide a core dump this would help us debugging. If you can provide one, please contact me via frank _dot_ mehnert _at_ sun _dot_ com, then I can tell you a server for the upload.

I have enabled coredumps but as of yet none have been generated. I will update this ticket once I can get one out. As I said there are no VMs running just VBoxManage doing some queries which are triggering the crash.

Could you check if VBox 3.1.6 fixes your problem by chance?
