00vboxvideo.conf no such file or directory?


Hi, I been using virtualbox for a few years and not had any problems I couldn't find some answer to. Using vbox Version 5.0.20 r106931.

Host is slackware 64 stable, I'm pretty sure virtualbox has been installed and updated since I installed slackware November 2013.

Last update to vbox to current version I updated guest modules rebooted and now before login prompt I keep seeing:
Starting the VirtualBox Guest AdditionsInstalling the Window System drivers
Installing X.Org Server 1.18 modules ...done.
Setting up the Window System to use the Guest Additions ...done.
You may need to restart the the Window System (or just restart the guest system) to enable the Guest Additions.
Installing graphics libraries and desktop services components ...done.
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S10vboxadd: line 324: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/00vboxvideo.conf: No such file of directory ...done.

Going into KDE everything seems to working ok, graphics, networking, usb, sound.

Shutting down I see:
Stopping VirtualBox Guest Addition service ...done.
Stopping VirtualBox Additions ...fail!
(Cannot unload module vboxguest)

This is happening with current 64 and stable 64 vms, which are both up to date. Anyone else seeing anything like this? tia

Have you checked to see if 00vboxvideo.conf exists anywhere on your system?

I see both messages in a -current VM. They're currently cosmetic only and don't affect functionality.

The 00vboxvideo.conf message is from a ln or rm command (or similar ... check line 324 of S10vboxadd) and does not affect the creation of the modules.

The stopping of vboxguest module message is also of no concern to me, as I generally see it when I'm shutting down or rebooting ... which will cause the module to be unloaded anyway.

thanks for following up

ls -la /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S10vboxadd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 May 12 10:23 /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S10vboxadd -> /etc/rc.d/init.d/vboxadd*

line 324
echo "/tmp/VBoxOGL" > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/00vboxvideo.conf

ls -la /etc/ld.so.conf.d/
/bin/ls: cannot access '/etc/ld.so.conf.d/': No such file or directory

As I said I'm not seeing any issues with the VMs and Hangaber isn't worried about it.

I think I see what is happening. The S10vboxadd is trying to create a file in the /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ directory, however it doesn't exist. You should be able to create the directory and have that error go away, but if you aren't seeing any issues by not having it, you might not see any benefit by adding it. Based on the name, I'm thinking it is related to VirtualBox's OpenGL implementation.

/etc/ld.so.conf.d - use on slackware?

in my opinion, in the start-stop scripts for running slackware - there is no THIS CATALOG

perhaps, it is worth looking at the problem of "vbox-guest on slackware" - more closely?

thanks

p.s.
if makedir - /etc/ld.so.conf.d then this is fake, does not have an application such as file: /etc/ld.so.conf
