[SOLVED] VBox GUI fails to launch on OS X 10.6.x host

Postby bjensen » 29. Apr 2010, 18:46

The 3.2.0 main VirtualBox GUI app fails to start on my Snow Leopard 10.6.3 (k64) host. The console prints the following messages:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
[0x0-0x90090].org.virtualbox.app.VirtualBox[1491]   VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib",) failed: dlopen(/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib, 10): Library not loaded: /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib

[0x0-0x90090].org.virtualbox.app.VirtualBox[1491]     Referenced from: /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox.dylib

[0x0-0x90090].org.virtualbox.app.VirtualBox[1491]     Reason: Incompatible library version: VirtualBox.dylib requires version 3.2.0 or later, but VBoxREM.dylib provides version 0.0.0


VirtualBox 3.1.6 has previously worked just fine on this machine. A quick googling did not reveal any immediate solution to this problem.

Googling can't help with ultra-new releases, such as 3.2.0-BETAs...

This sounds like the installation doesn't went fine. Please uninstall the previous version using the uninstaller provided in the dmg of VirtualBox and install VirtualBox again. Please make also sure that VirtualBox isn't running when you install a new version.

I uninstalled the beta and reinstalled, and it still refuses to start with the same error message about the library version. I uninstalled and reinstalled 3.1.6 and everything worked fine, so I doubt it is something specific to my system. Anything else? otool gives the following output:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
otool -L /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib
/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib:
   /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current version 0.0.0)
   /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib (compatibility version 3.2.0, current version 3.2.0)
   /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxVMM.dylib (compatibility version 3.2.0, current version 3.2.0)
   /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxRT.dylib (compatibility version 3.2.0, current version 3.2.0)
   /usr/lib/libstdc++.6.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0, current version 7.9.0)
   /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 123.0.0)


Maybe a problem with the library creation?

I'm also experiencing the same problem. Uninstalling and reinstalling did not change the result.

From the output of otool -L it seems that VBoxREM.dylib has indeed some problems:

    $ otool -L /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib
    /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib:
    /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib (compatibility version 0.0.0, current version 0.0.0)
    /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib (compatibility version 3.2.0, current version 3.2.0)
    [...]

Same here. Are you guys using Apple hardware or an OSx86 box?

Here are some of my observations regarding this problem (64bit kernel, MacOS X 10.6.3):

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
> lipo -info /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib
Architectures in the fat file: /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM.dylib are: i386 x86_64
> lipo -info /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM32.dylib
Non-fat file: /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM32.dylib is architecture: i386
> lipo -info /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM64.dylib
Non-fat file: /Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxREM64.dylib is architecture: i386

If you use the command

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
/Applications//VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VirtualBox-x86

the gui comes up but in 32bit mode.
