VirtualBox: NS_ERROR_FAILURE, component Machine, interface IMachine, callee
After a routine upgrade of Slackware64 13.1, VirtualBox 3.2.8 virtual machines will not start. The error message is (as shown, with nothing after callee)
Rebuilding the modules using /etc/rc.d/vboxdrv setup goes without an error message either on-screen or in /var/log/vbox-install.log but does not fix the problem.
The packages upgraded include glibc-solibs-2.11.1-x86_64-5_slack13.1, glibc-2.11.1-x86_64-5_slack13.1, glibc-i18n-2.11.1-x86_64-5_slack13.1, glibc-profile-2.11.1-x86_64-5_slack13.1 and glibc-zoneinfo-2.11.1-noarch-5_slack13.1.
Netsearching for the error message does not find any closely related problems except for this from 4oct10 with solution "The problem was caused by incorrect .config file into the linux-source directory"
Fixed by installing VirtualBox 3.2.12 (thanks vdemuth).
