Description

Hi,

The VirtualBox 1.5.0 QT UI segfaults when I have ALSA sound enabled on any of my VM's. Fortunately It looks to me like it's just an issue with string handling when the "Some audio devices could not be opened" warning box is displayed. Switching to the OSS option works around this issue (Because under OSS I don't get that warning although sound seems to work fine using ALSA).

Full multi threaded back trace attached.

  • Summary changed from VirtualBox 1.5.0 segfaults when the the QT UI throws a warning about audio devices that could not be opened. to VirtualBox 1.5.0 segfaults when the the QT UI throws a warning about audio devices that could not be opened. => fixed in SVN

Thank you for this report and the core dump. This should only apply to AMD64 and binaries compiled with gcc-4. Fixed in svn.

I just checked out SVN (revision 4512) and compiled it and this still occurs. Do I need to rebuild the kernel module too or was this fix just in the 'client'?

Sorry, fix contained in svn since r4521.

Yes, only you don't need to recompile the kernel module.
