VM abort with 3D enabled for Fedora-15 / Gnome-3 guest

Reported by: krpgnv Owned by:
Component: 3D support Version: VirtualBox 4.0.8

Guest type: Linux Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Using VirtualBox version 4.0.8 r71778 on a host system running 64-bit Fedora-14, if I boot a virtual machine with a 64-bit Fedora-15 / Gnome-3 guest, it boots to the login screen, and I am able to enter username and password, but when Gnome-3 shell attempts to start I briefly see an apparently corrupted screen, then the VM aborts if 3D support is enabled. If I disable 3D support and reboot the exact same VM, it boots successfully and I am able to log into the guest, but Gnome-3 starts in "fallback" mode due to the lack of 3D support.

Please note: The 64-bit Fedora-15 / Gnome-3 "guest" running in the VM has the latest "Guest Additions" for VirtualBox 4.0.8 R71778 installed on it and is (at least as of the date this ticket was opened), all available Fedora updates applied.

It established into VirtualBox to 32-bit Of fedora 15. I start also with the entrance into the system appears window in which it is spoken that cannot it will completely load BY GNOME 3 in the form of the fact that graphic system it does not support all functions, and it loads in the regime of fallback.

What type of hosts graphics card are you using? Intel?

Folks, I have filed a bug against Fedora 14. If you are bitten by this issue then you can follow up there:

(assuming that all of those who hit this problem are running fedora on an Intel graphics card)

For fedora 14 users, you can try updating the mesa drivers from rawhide. This worked for me:

'yum update mesa* --enablerepo=rawhide'
