There have been several reports 3D acceleration on Linux guests failing. I'm not sure if this is due to one or more different bugs.
A couple of people reported that they had working 3D acceleration until they installed 3.2.10 GA (on Linux Mint 9, Ubuntu 10.04). I have seen this problem with trying to turn on 3D acceleration with virtualbox 3.2.10 on Ubuntu 10.10. Here is the post on the forum describing my particular problem:
If I use the 3.2.10 GA, glxinfo reports that it is using mesa for rendering, desktop effects are disabled, and OpenGL programs based on GLUT run, but run without hardware acceleration.
If I use the Ubuntu virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 package from Ubuntu (which I know isn't recommended for the PUEL version) glxinfo reports that it is using Chromium for rendering, and desktop effects are enabled. However, in this situation, OpenGL apps which use GLUT (that I've tried) segfault with a message about XGetVisualInfo returned 0 visuals.
I have attached several logs which were created when I had the 3.2.10 GA installed on my Ubuntu 10.10 guest.
