i get a segfault when trying to install the guest additions on an existing debian stretch guest (debian buster host).

if i ignore it and reboot, the guest comes back with no way to move the mouse or use the keyboard - i'm basically stuck at the gdm screen with no way to login.

Could you please provide more details about the segfault? I assume it is in code on the host?

hmm, it seems to be ok now, don't you just love intermittent issues?!

it did segfault with some error code (139?) twice when trying to build the initramfs. it was VBoxLinuxAdditions.sh that segfaulted on the guest, not vbox on the host.

i wonder if it was because i'd already mounted some shared folders - as this time i just did a fresh boot and ran the installer straight away.

I have not had any issues with segfaults; however, 6.0.10 broke the mouse cursor for me. The cursor display is 2/3rds of a line below where it has an effect. This happened in an earlier release but was fixed, so it seems that this is a regression.

Try the latest 6.0 guest additions from the Test build page. It contains some fixes to the Windows graphics drivers which had issues with the Windows 10 magnifier support... if it doesn't help, let us know, ideally with a screenshot.

I upgraded the VirtualBox to the latest test build, along with the guest additions. The issue is still present.

Environment:
Windows 7
VirtualBox: 6.0.11r132665
Guest Additions: VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.11-132500.iso
Image: Ubuntu 16.04

Running any editor (gedit, Sublime, etc...), if I click into text, the cursor will place itself on the line above where I clicked and to the left by 2 characters.

Example:

Line 1
Line 2

Using 6.0.10/11, if I click directly at the end of Line 2, the cursor will place itself between the e and the space of Line 1.

This issue does not happen to me in 5.2.32.
