VirtualBox: NS_ERROR_FAILURE, component Machine, interface IMachine, callee


Hello

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)
Code:
ERROR: The virtual machine 'WXP' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1
Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component Machine, interface IMachine, callee
No log is generated in the ~/.VirtualBox/Machines/WXP/Log directory.

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"

Three questions:
  1. The running kernel's .config file is not in /usr/src/linux but in /home/c/src/linux-2.6.33.4. That has not previously been a problem ... ?
  2. Does the VirtualBox module build and/or kernel build use glibc packages? If so, is it worth trying to fix the problem by re-building the kernel?
  3. How to back out the glibc package changes? This with the hope of restoring functionality and analysing the problem.
Best

Fixed by installing VirtualBox 3.2.12 (thanks vdemuth).
