(EE) Failed to load module "vboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)

Postby rossmpersonal » 18. Sep 2017, 15:52

I am running a CentOS 7 guest(latest version and patches) on VirtualBox Version 5.1.28 r117968 (Qt5.6.2) with the latest extension pack and guest additions on a Mac OS 10.11 host.

I am concerned because Xorg.0.log contains the error: "(EE) Failed to load module "vboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)"

rcvboxadd setup does not solve the problem or produce any relevant errors.


How do I fix or troubleshoot this problem? Do I just need to create a symlink to help it find the "vboxvideo" module?

I have attached my Xorg.0.log file.

That error is not necessarily a fatal one. Can you describe what you are seeing that makes you think there is an actual issue? Is 3D acceleration enabled in the guest settings?

Also post the results of the following issued from the guests terminal:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
glxinfo | grep OpenGL

Yes.

All indications are the guest is working as it should within VirtualBox. "glamoregl" is not a part of VirtualBox so I can not address that issue with you here. So I still need to ask what makes you think there is an issue other than the logs you are looking at? Does the guest actually work and does it scale properly?

I have similar issue to rossmpersonal. Although, the failure to load "vboxvideo" module isn't fatal, but I would like to fix this problem, so `vboxvideo_drv.so` can be found by Xorg server. Would someone please direct me to the right direction to do so?

Hi, from other posts in the forums, it seems that there is an issue with VBox video driver and X11 1.19.x, the virtual machine will work but the video will not be able to be resized. We are awaiting any confirmation from development...
Thanks
