Installing Ubuntu crashes VirtualBox

Postby nonamegrl » 8. Sep 2020, 13:55

I have macOS Catalina (version 10.15.6) and everytime I try to install Ubuntu on Virtualbox (version 6.1) it crashes. I´ve tried three different Ubuntu versions, 20.04.1, 18.04.5 and 16.04.7. I have attached the error message. Does anyone have a solution to this?

Thanks!

I am experiencing the same issue. Has anybody found this a solution to this yet?

I found a solution! If you install an older version of VirtualBox (5.2 instead of 6.1 my case), it works with Ubuntu 20.04.1 :)

Looks like the best option is to disable audio. It worked for me.

It does that for me too. Before it crashes it displays the message:

[6.278342] [drm:vmw_host_log [vmwgfx]] *ERROR* Failed to send log
[6.279473] [drm:vmw_host_log [vmwgfx]] *ERROR* Failed to send log

Can someone please help me.

I can also attest to disabling the microphone in the VM, then starting the VM. This worked for me for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS on Virtualbox 6.1 running on macOS Mojave.
I was also having the same exact issue with my Kali Linux 2020.3 fresh install crashing. Disabling the microphone enabled that VM to start as well.

I hope this helps others.

I can confirm that the problem with the crashes is the audio. Once I disabled the audio support, I was able to install Ubuntu 20.04 on VirtualBox 6.1 on OSX 10.15.6 (Catalina).

I have also found that the guest add-on does not work properly in 20.04 under 6.1. For example, the screen resizing just shows a black screen when you resize the window or go to full screen. You have to select a pre-configured size.

Pretty disappointing.

We're going to close this one so we don't continue to get me-too's.

nonamegrl, if you want to re-open it later, please PM a moderator.
