Latest VirtualBox update reboots host
« on: September 23, 2013, 10:06:04 PM »
After todays latest dist-upgrade which included a VirtualBox update, I am finding I cannot run any of my hosts and when I attempt any function, VSIDO logs out with no messages.

I have seen from google this has been an issue in the past few years after updates..

Anyone else seeing it?

Will keep you updated as this progresses

I had the same issue and I believe this is how I fixed it....

Code: [Select]
sudo su
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/lib/virtualbox
Code: [Select]
mv VBoxTestOGL VBoxTestOGL.orig
Code: [Select]
ln -s /bin/false VBoxTestOGL

Edit:

but I dont have VB installed on this machine so I cant test

It did work... I would put in your post to run all of that as root so that anyone else seeking a fix will know that

Nice one lwfitz!

Thanks!
