3.2.10 r66523 Freezes Xserver and takes segfault

Reported by: jphartmann Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.10 Keywords: segfault
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux


The setup runs vbox on a headless 64-bit Fedora 13 (linux). The X server is a 32-bit Fedora 13 on an atom processor. Virtual OS win2k.

After a while the X server freezes up and must be manually reset (rebooted). Last this happened, windows was idle and the screensaver active.

The syslog where Vbox is running shows two messages related to vbox:

VirtualBox[17597]: segfault at 8 ip 00007f228c8aae48 sp 00007f227ab96980 error 6 in[7f228c680000+43e000]

At this point it is possible to log in the user that started Vbox, but it never gets the shell prompt. I can log in as root and see all the processes.

about 3 minutes later after the X server is rebooted:

VirtualBox[17533] general protection ip:3f7c275795 sp:7fff9284a530 error:0 in[3f7c200000+175000]

At this point all VBox processes have disappeared without trace.

I am appending the log file, but it contains no information.

I could not find any core dumps. Where would it be in my file system?
