VMSVGA and Google-Chrome

I have to admit that 6.0.6 fixed many problems with VBOXSVGA driver related with Linux Guest.

Then there is an evident and big problem running Linux binary version of Google-Chrome (NOT Chromium) under pretty much every Linux I do try.

Beware: this do NOT happen when you start the program, you have to run it for more, in my experience it can even need two or three days to crash the virtual machine with an exception error. It happen ALWAYS in my experience. It doesn't happen with the same driver in native VMware, obviously.

Here a log of what happen when the virtual machine crash related to Google-Chrome.

Hope It is usefull.


PS: the log file was 157 KB, so becouse this forum doesn't accept attachment bigger then 128 K I've been forced to cut it. I cut the CFG part. If you need it complete, just allow bigger attachment of explain me how to provide it.

Partial log files are almost always problematical. You should compress it using your favourite tool: zip, gzip, rar, etc. and then attach it.

The OP has been on this site for 6 years and has provided compressed logs before, so I'm not sure what the difficulty was this time. The restriction on attachment size is a deliberate policy to conserve server space. That policy is not going to change any time soon.

This appears in the log, and should certainly be fixed.

The crash itself may be related to suspend/resume. A workaround would be to shut guests down fully.

Looking closer at the log, the exception seems to occur in d3d9.dll, which is a Direct3D DLL. Do you really need 3D acceleration in this VM?

00:00:20.017682 VMMDev: Guest Additions information report: Version 6.0.5 r128811 '6.0.5'

In any case it's not good that this VM is still running an obsolete test build of the GAs when a later matching release build is available.

I'm now in 6.0.6 and the workaround is not running Google-Chrome. This problem just happen with Google-Chrome loaded.

As I said this happen with ANY not just this VM when running in SVGA3D video mode. And yes, 3D is a really important feature with modern OS, so I will never ever play without 3D, it help with everything multitasking related, moving windows, etc etc

Then, as I stated, 6.0.6 improved things related with VMSVGA driver, but Google-Chrome interaction.

PS: VBoxVGA driver is no more a choice becouse it pretty much can't do 3D anymore.
