VBox crashes within minutes of running

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I'm almost afraid to start any virtual machine now for fear of vm corruption because VB seems to crash just doing anything on my computer. Be it Starting a vm, stopping a vm, the vm just running (any guest) or even just trying to open/close the Virtual Media Manager, VB will crash. It doesn't happen instantly, but it will always happen within a few minutes of VB being launched. I can't seem to pinpoint a single reason as to why this happens.

My computer: MacBook Pro 5,5 (Mid-2009) 4GB of RAM Snow Leopard 10.6.4 with the 64-bit kernel activated VirtualBox 3.2.8

This has been happening since 3.1 (or whatever was recent in Jan. 2010)

Guests do not have to be running. The VirtualBox program itself can crash, a vm can crash, or they'll both crash.

Attached is a list of crashes from VirtualBox and VirtualBoxVM, along with the VBox.log of the last guest that crashed (Fedora 13 32-bit). Crashed happened when I tried to enter seamless mode. I can be doing anything to trigger a crash.

Does this happen as well if you disable 3D acceleration for the VM?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by Entegy

Yes it can. But I don't think 3D acceleration being on or off matters when crashes can happen just by using the library window with no virtual machines running.

As most of the crashes seems touch event related: Do you use a MagicMouse or something like that?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by Entegy

No Magic Mouse, just the touchpad built into the computer (MacBook Pro 5,5 (mid-2009 model)). I do have a Bluetooth mouse (Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000) I use regularly, but I can't remember what interface I was using at the time of the older crashes, but at the time of the latest crash+VBox.log I was using the touchpad.
