[SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

I succesfully build package and installed latest virtualbox-sun 3.1.4 with pacman -U, restore session works perfectly again. But the problem is that if I go to preferences (Ctrl+G), main VirtualBox window crash. Is there some fix for that or I need to wait another release?

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

I have also the same problem (with both versions 3.1.4 and 3.1.2)!

Maybe it is related to Qt version. I will try to downgrade
my Qt version to check if my suspicion will be confirmed!

With previous version 3.1.2, I've had session restore crashing.

OK, do that, and tell us your results.

Yeah, but just for the record, after downgrading to qt-4.5.3-4 I've had problems with VLC.

Skin was not right:
vlcj.th.png

and I get errors:

VLC media player 1.0.5 Goldeneye

By the way, new qt-4.6.2-1 upgrade, fix problems with VirtualBox, finally.

I need to correct myself. On Alt+G it still crash, but I can Alt+S on virtual machine.

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

Today I experienced the same problem in Virtualbox. Preferences window makes the main window crash. Also when opening the settings of a certain VM (not all of them) the main window crashes and the app exits.

I also thought it could be a QT issue, so I reinstalled QT 4.6.2, I recompiled virtualbox 3.1.4 with -j2 option instead of -j3, but it all makes no difference.

However, I have found a workaround for the crashing: change the QT theme to let's say cleanlooks in QT config. Whatever you choose should be fine, as long as it's not GTK+ or Desktop (default).

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

You are right ulukai, Desktop Settings (Default) and GTK+ in Qt config makes main window crash after Alt+G, but everything else to choose is fine. Cleanlooks is the best, because is closest to GNOME default theme.
Strange, but it works. big_smile

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

I can confirm this bug. Change qtconfig settings to anything but GTK+ and Default solves the problem. Downgrading qt is not an option if you have upgraded kde or you're using kde apps. It seems we need to wait to Sun/Oracle guys to fix this issue.

Also, if qtconfig doen't remember the settings, try deleting ~/.config/Trolltech.conf and save settings again. [1]

I've filled a bug report on VirtualBox's bug tracker [2].

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

Ok, we have an answer from Virtualbox guys [1].

from  poetzsch: 'As far I can see ArchLinux uses the run package from our side. The run package contains all necessary libraries which includes the Qt libraries as well. It is build and packaged this way to ensure all necessary bits are there and to make external dependencies as low as possible. Replacing the qt libraries with newer one is something we didn't support. Maybe the package maintainer should consider to use the bundled libraries. The same is done on Gentoo and there are no problems with that. I saw a discussion going on about the dependency on libpng12. This is another problem which we maybe fix in a future version.'

So, we need to contact 'bdheeman' (virtualbox-sun package maintainer) to confirm this, and to see if that solution is possible. I'll leave a message on the AUR package page [2] pointing to this thread.

Thank you for keeping us posted. I installed another package from AUR which caused the bug I mentioned before: Virtualbox_bin 3.1.4. I left a comment there with the same question if it's possible to make the changes.

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

Ok, this virtualbox package [1] is fixed to use bundled qt libs. I've not tested yet that, but I guess it will work using GTK+ and Default settings on qtconfig.

Anyone can confirm this is working?

PS: Note that some corrections to the PKGBUILD may be needed because the libpng12 issue. Please read carefully the comments on [1].

Re: [SOLVED] VirtualBox main window crash after going to preferences

It can be set as solved for me, since the new pkgbuild is working fine without crashes.

Due to the use of Virtualbox QT libs and not the system libs, my GTK+ theme is not used in Virtualbox, but it is used in other QT apps as VLC and SMplayer, so I thought this would be normal...?

Sorry for slight delay, but I needed to cut some of letters to put [SOLVED].:lol:

So, is there some incosistency in theme between GNOME desktop and Qt apps?
I didn't try yet this new updated package.

edit:
Nevermind. Now is all OK.

There is also small bug, On first run it fails to register saying invalid IP adress, and I need to go Help>Register Virtualbox, than it's OK.
