virtualbox segfault when try edit VM properties

Postby j-tu » 23. Dec 2010, 15:04

I have upgrade virtualbox from 3.2 to 4.0 on Kubuntu 10.10 AMD 64

All old VMs work OK, but I cant edit VM properties

If I run virtualbox from console:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$virtualbox
QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: ??? ?????? ????? ??? ????????
Qt WARNING: QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/j-tu/.config/ibus/bus
Qt WARNING: Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
Segmentation fault



I create new VM and also cant edit properties

Confirm this bug on my machine
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ dpkg -l virtualbox-4.0                                                                                                   
ii  virtualbox-4.0                         4.0.0-69151~Debian~squeeze             Oracle VM VirtualBox

$ uname -mrs
Linux 2.6.36-2.slh.3-aptosid-amd64 x86_64
Running virtualbox from console and then trying to edit:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ virtualbox
Speicherzugriffsfehler
In rare cases it is possible to edit without crashing.
Not foreseeable.
Don't know how to debug.
Any help appreciated
Tom

Same here - Fedora 14 x86_64, kernel 2.6.35.10-72, QT 4.7. I am able to edit the settings on only one of my VMs - if I try to edit the settings on any others, the interface just crashes with a segfault

An error i reported in the Betaphase.

I think over the links in the right settings display the dialog opens.

Its not a package problem from the distro.

Today i compiled the newest ose from source. Same Behaviour.

Confirm the bug on ubuntu 10.10 x86_64.
Over the links in the right settings display the dialog opens correctly.

I can confirm on openSUSE 11.3 x86_64, KDE 4.6, VirtualBox-4.0-4.0.0_69151_openSUSE113-1.x86_64

I just get a plain Segmentation Fault (no ibus or other errors) when I try to edit the properties of an installed VM.

In the VirtualBox GUI on the right side (rechts :) ) there are the guest settings for the marked guest.

Every section has now a link that call the settings dialog with the tab from the link.

I, too, am having this problem. I right click on the VM and select "Settings" and VB 4.0.0 disappears ... Thanks to whoever posted the tip on the links to the right. That saved the day for me ... I need usb support for iTunes.

Kubuntu 10.10 (fully updated)
Vurtualbox 4.0.0 PUEL

We fixed this problem, see ticked #7875 for a test build. The fix will be included in the next minor version.

Any Idea when it will be released? I know other projects will release a revision release almost straight away (with just that patch) if a major flaw like that has been detected.
