No you're not. There was no VirtualBox 5.0.16 in September 2016, so the original report is nonsense.

But 5.1.6 was (September 12th, 2016), and typos are common.

Be careful with your call button, before you alienate more Oracle customers.

Be careful with your reaction, because you're not a customer. You're a simple user, like the rest of us. Your message has been edited to clean your comment.

And just because there were several versions mixed up in this thread:
  • 2016-03-04 : 5.0.16
  • 2016-07-18 : 5.0.26
  • 2016-09-12 : 5.1.6
  • 2017-03-08 : 5.1.16

Hello,

I updated today to 5.1.22
My linux is:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Linux paris1.localdomain 4.1.12-94.3.4.el7uek.x86_64 #2 SMP Mon May 15 13:57:28 PDT 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I did a "yum update" today too and restarted computer


I use Xming 6.9.0.31 on Windows 7 (Windows updated too today).

I do:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
[root@paris1 ~]# export DISPLAY=192.168.0.35:0.0
[root@paris1 ~]# VirtualBox &
[1] 18635
[root@paris1 ~]# Qt WARNING: failed to get the current screen resources
Qt WARNING: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 170 (Unknown), sequence: 170, resource id: 90, major code: 146 (Unknown), minor code: 20


As you can see, I get the same kind of error (this is the only page that google gave to me when I look for "Qt WARNING: failed to get the current screen resources").

But VirtualBox looks to work, It is 5.1.14.
(Oops, not the last version)

I update VirtualBox to last version:

......
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Updated:
  VirtualBox-5.1.x86_64 0:5.1.22_115126_el7-1

Complete!
[2]+  Done                    VirtualBox  (wd: ~)
(wd now: /etc/yum.repos.d)
[root@paris1 yum.repos.d]# VirtualBox &
[1] 22610
[root@paris1 yum.repos.d]# Qt WARNING: failed to get the current screen resources
Qt WARNING: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 170 (Unknown), sequence: 170, resource id: 90, major code: 146 (Unknown), minor code: 20

Still same message.

I restart computer...
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
[root@paris1 yum.repos.d]# shutdown -r now
Using username "root".

[root@paris1 ~]# export DISPLAY=192.168.0.35:0.0
[root@paris1 ~]# VirtualBox &

[root@paris1 ~]# Qt WARNING: failed to get the current screen resources
Qt WARNING: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 170 (Unknown), sequence: 170, resource id: 90, major code: 146 (Unknown), minor code: 20



So, the same...

As VirtualBox looks like it works, I don't complain.

This is just to say that this problem still exists (And I am not smart enough to identify why).

Best regards,

Christian COMMARMOND
