  • Arch Linux (64-bit) Guest VM boot process hangs unless "Use host I/O cache" is set off at under SATA controller settings. There weren't any hangs in the previous version of Virtualbox (5.2.x series).
  • Guest Additions for Linux keeps always rebuilding the kernel modules after the boot. I suspect it does that at the end reboot/shutdown process, too.
  • When running in the desktop environment, moving around windows by mouse are sluggish. 3D acceleration is enabled at the VM settings.

Desktop shortcut creation still non-functional in 6.0.2 Win x64. In 6.0.0 a window popped up giving an error that could be fixed by changing the shortcut's target launch .exe, now in 6.0.2 trying to launch any 6.0.2 newly created shortcuts just results in the vbox process starting up and then closing a couple seconds later. Only way I can currently launch VM's is through the GUi. Edit: Confirmed shortcut creation has the exact same outcome on a second Win10 x64 machine.

@Virinix
Cannot reproduce on a Win7-32 host. I'll try the Win7-64 and Win10-64, but it's a triple boot PC, so, updates later...

This did not happen for me. It would be great if you could investigate a bit more (can you reproduce it with a guest which is quick to install, I seem to remember that Arch is a bit time consuming for someone who does not use it regularly). A patch would be even nicer of course.

Hi michael,

For completeness, following thread should possibly be mentioned here. Issue discussed is present in both 6.0.0 and 6.0.2.
Exit Full Screen doesn't revert to resolution prior

In closing, would like to say thank you for such wonderful open source virtualization software.

@Dave B
This is *not* a 6.0.2 issue, this is clearly a 6.0.0 issue, just check the report dates on the thread that you linked to.

Since no ticket has been filed yet about this, I'll open one (now that it's confirmed) and I'll post it in the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release" thread.

Ah okay, you prefer just 6.0.2 observations / changes, not issues that may still be present, no problem!

Right. Otherwise every "Discuss the X.y.z release" thread would be a summary of all the open tickets! :)

TrendAV seems to be the problem, disabled and working so far.

A tangential issue, but...

I just noticed that the chapter numbering of the online user manual is now different from the numbering used in the PDF copy of the 6.0.2 manual distributed with the product. It seems that the "Preface" section is not numbered in the PDF, but online "Preface" is numbered as chapter 1, thus adding +1 to all remaining chapters.

Deliberate? Error? Transitional?

The wrong numbering happened with the release of 6.0.0. I opened a ticket for that, since it was invalidating every previous link that we've ever made. The ticket #18198 Disconnect in chapter numbering between PDF and online manual was fixed on 2019-01-09. In the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release" notes...

Maybe you need to refresh your copy, clear the cache? Shift+Reload in Firefox at least, forces a new copy of the page. I show it as Preface being numberless, "First Steps" being ch. 1.

I'm at work now, so different PC, but I still see the same thing. Shift+Reload makes no difference to the page content in Pale Moon, a Firefox fork.

I also just fired up Chrome, which I've never used to visit a VirtualBox site before, and it also shows "1. Preface". This cannot possibly be a local cache problem.
