That's not something that can be fixed in Slackware, it's something that should be fixed in VirtualBox.

I doubt this is sufficient. The problem is that kde on startup checks the capabilities of the graphics driver in use. That check somehow crashes kwin, so you have to disable the check.
You can do this by putting:

Quote:
[Compositing]
OpenGLIsUnsafe=true
into ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc for every user or globally into /usr/share/config/kwinrc

Steps I used are here...
I'm fairly certain it was from the 4.x series of Vbox and a non-Slackware OS with KDE.
I can't remember ever having to run the command since.

Sorry, not much help otherwise.
Have a Great Day!

Kwin keeps crashing in Slackware 14 RC3

Hi,

I have a similar problem both in KVM and Virtualbox. However, I also tried to use a remote X session with XDMCP and Xephyr on a real computer and see the same problem there , so I don't think Compositing (detection) is the problem here.

My five cents ...
