[Fixed] Error building the graphics driver module in RHEL 7.6 (#18093)

Post by JoergK »


ModEdit; related ticket: #18093: Error building the graphics driver module in a RHEL 7.6 guest

Note that you need the 5.2.x Guest Additions r126544 or greater from the Testbuilds for the fix, or 6.0.0 and later.

Good Morning,

I'm using VBox 5.2.20 r125813 (Qt5.6.1) on Ubuntu 16.04 Host with RHEL 7.6 guest. After updating the RHEL guest I tried to update the installed guest additions to the current version but building the graphics driver module failed.

Please, have a look into the attached logfiles. Does anybody have a good idea what went wrong here?

If you want to use the latest version for your host/guests, you should also consider doing the same for VirtualBox. You should try the latest test builds, I believe that the issue has been addressed.

Looks like the latest 5.2.x test build (VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.21-126141) has the same issue. The vboxadd-seteup.log file looks identical.
I even tried the latest nightly build of the Guest Additions (126210) with no luck - the result is the same.

Hi,

I've tried it with test build 5.2.21-126213, but building the graphics driver module failed, too. I've opened a ticket at: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/18093

If there is anything else I could do to track this one down, I would be happy if I could be of some help.

Regards,
Joerg

Looks like the 5.2.23-126581 additions fix this issue.

Running RHEL 7.6 - 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64 on guest.

I've had trouble with resolution (using i3 and DWM tiling window managers and switching to desired resolutions using xrandr) since the last kernel upgrade and 5.22 install.

Installing the additions VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.23-126581.iso gave me back the option of resolutions.
Still running 5.22 r126460 as the manager (my 5.23 test package install was not successful).

Thank you for the fix.

I am also having this issue. Where can I download version 5.2.23-126581 guest additions? I have looked on download dot virtualbox dot org slash virtualbox and don't see it there.
