Ticket #8231 (closed defect: fixed)
X Segmentation fault on startx -> fixed on trunk as of 2011-02-04
|Reported by:||rbhkamal||Owned by:|
Occasionally, vboxvideo_drv.so crashes X with segmentation fault at address 0xc. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce the problem on a system that allows switching to the console (so I can copy the logs). However, I was able to take a screen shot of the error.
The workaround, is when X fails to start, restart the guest services and reload the vboxvideo_drv module then try to start X again.
The guest is a *live* stripped down Ubuntu 10.04.1 running linux-kernel-x86-2.6.32-28-generic and X server version 1.7.6
The problem seems to get worse when the guest takes longer to boot, however, following the workaround above always works.
See attached for crash trace.
fyi, I'm currently requesting for permission to provide you with the ISO or maybe an export of the virtual machine.
