socratis,

Thanks for your post. I couldn't find 6.0.14 for macOS yet but 6.0.13 test version and your command did the trick. My ubuntu vm loaded. I discovered mid-catalina beta (maybe beta 4 -5ish) that having virtual box in "input monitoring" caused crashes as I was trying to figure out crashes back then for my ubuntu vm. removing it from input monitoring worked then. Its amazing to year a 6 year old bug was related too this issue. I've noticed that 6.0.13 has asked for permissions properly now. Both request for volumes and downloads folder have popped up. Oddly it seems to ignore or not help if I manually give it full disk access. Thanks for this post and unlike many others I did read through it all first.

one question on the command. does it matter if you have the 0 at the end?

Thanks,
Trifster

Is there an update for the VirtualBox-6.0.14-133895-OSX.dmg to return the the download page? It disappeared halfway through downloading it this afternoon and I don't see that it has returned to the download page. All the other supported OS download are still there after the official notice that 6.0.14 is available on the home page.

Well, software bugs have been known to cause way more serious issues over the years, see List of software bugs in Wikipedia (Warning: Scary). And yes, there are bugs out there that were way older than 6 years, see The World’s Oldest Software Bugs.

Of course it does! It's the difference between enabling/disabling the workaround! :)

It was half-baked, they now put it back in the oven for that crispy look and feel of a new release, a.k.a. double-baked... ;)

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync

Excuse me, but this didn't work for me to cancel the VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0 command! What can I do?

How do you know exactly that this command didn't "work"? What were you expecting it to do, exactly?

Any news on when we can expect the double-baked version to appear?

  1. I used VirtualBox for a long time, running a Debian. It works very fine. To run the VM I use the VirtualBox Icon in the Dock of my Mac.
  2. After the update to Catalina, I get crashes all the time, as described from a lot of people.
  3. Then I try the
    Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
    VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync 0
    command. The result is, that every time, I use the Icon to start the VM I get the message to start from the command line. Okay, I try, but it didn't work.
  4. Then I use the
    Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
    VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/HidLedsSync
    command to cancel, but I get also the message to start from command line.
BUT: this was a few hours before. I tried now to describe and now, I'm able to start via Icon, as before. So this special mistake (my mistake?) is solved. Thank you for asking for an exact description!

What you needed to do is to recreate that shortcut to the VM.

Glad it's working now...

Seems to be back now; thanks for the info...

Unfortunately, still crashing my Catalina iMac as soon as I start up a new macOS guest with the Catalina ISO to build a new VM.

Hi,

Same problem here after upgrade to Catalina, all VMs crash. Found that if they start in headless mode and after startup is ongoing press "Start" again they don't crash anymore.
