LUbuntu 16.04.x with

Postby JEBjames » 21. Oct 2017, 08:39

Note: breaking this off from viewtopic.php?f=3&t=85087 as per socratis' suggestion.

host: Windows 10 Professional

I previously tried this with 16.04.1 with latest HWE kernel (4.10.x) kernel with same results.

I reinstalled an Lubuntu 16.04.1 alternate install ISO keeping the non-hwe 4.4.0-97 kernel with only:

sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
reboot

apt-get install mesa-utils

At this point it is still using Ubuntu's pre-installed flavor of the guest additions (5.0.18 Ubuntu). running "glxinfo" doesn't crash.

installed guest additions 5.2.1 r118447 guest additions.
reboot.

lsmod vboxguest
lsmod vboxsf
lsmod vboxvideo

The updated 5.2.1 r118447 additions install correctly (thanks for the quick fix).

However, running glxinfo still endlessly spams the error message: OpenGL Warning: vboxCall failed with VBox status code VERR_BUFFER_OVERFLOW. Note, that on the other thread someone mentioned seeing the same message on the console.

If I press Control-C once the warnings stop. But I must press Control-C again to exit back to the command prompt.

I shut down the guest with the "shutdown" command and attached the log. Please let me know if any other info is requested.

Fyi, disabling "3d acceleration" makes glxinfo not give any errors.

I don't know anything about the virtualbox code under the hood...

But it looks like the "OpenGL Warning: vboxCall failed with VBox status code VERR_BUFFER_OVERFLOW" warning is generated from one of these two places:

https://www.virtualbox.org/browser/vbox ... vboxhgcm.c
line 601

https://www.virtualbox.org/browser/vbox ... boxhgsmi.c
line 279

The non-working "Black screen login" Ubuntu problems are stuck at 100% cpu spamming the same error. So my guess is that fixing this may fix that one as well...

Same problem here.
VirtualBox 5.2.2-119230-Win (Qt5.6.2)
Ubuntu 16.04.3-desktop-amd64 (clean-installed)
GA 5.2.2 iso dated 2017-11-23

Desktop login is broken after GA installed. After login, ~/.xsession-errors is spammed with the "OpenGL Warning: vboxCall failed with VBox status code VERR_BUFFER_OVERFLOW" warning.
