I didn't say the "development snapshot" was new.
I've been using it since it was release, as previously mentioned in post #10 in this thread.

Well I don't know what I am doing wrong, I am not doing anything different; but I am still getting kernel panics in --Current installed with guest additions in Virtualbox.

You are not doing anything wrong:
this is ongoing issue (specifically here): https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20055#comment:22

I plan to try this solution sometime today (if I have time)
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20163
basically disabling
CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK
may help.
I am no very hopeful though as (if I remember correctly) I disabled all debugging in the kernel, but I am going to check.


interesting titbits:
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20055#comment:23
if host kernel is below 5.10.x, linux VM client works with kernel 5.10.x

this though seems a bit improbable:

update:
as suspected I did not have CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK in the config and vbox client with kernel 5.10.15 still crashing
booting host with kernel 5.4.96 and client with 5.10.15 did not help either.

so at this point client must run kernel less than 5.10.x

At least Oracle knows about the issue

You're not doing anything wrong. I've decided not to install GuestAddditions. Whatever I did GuestAdditions messed things up big time.

The following, at the moment, seems to work for me

On the host running 14.2 with Kernel 4.4.240 and VirtualBox 5.0.40
On the guest running Current with Kernel 5.10.14 and NO VirtualBox packages whatsoever. I've settled on the VirtualBox settings for display of 64MB and no 3D, anything more seems to cause problems i.e. something akin to buffering

With this setup I get screen resising and shared folders as these are all NOW supplied by the default kernel. All seem to work without issue.

I can't get VirtualBox's bi-directional copy/paste or drag and drop to work, I suspect these are supplied by GuestAdditions. I thought this was a big deal, but with shared folders working I can work around it.

If I encounter anything else I shall post here.

I can install VirtualBox client with kernel 5.10.x and this works fine. However after installing Vbox client additions kernels 5.10.x crash with the error messages as posted by Jeebizz.
In fact vboxvideo and vboxfs are provided by kernel for pretty long time.
The only issue is copy/paste between client/host and client/client.
Copy/paste option is restored when client runs 5.4.x series (you can run 5.9.x also but it is EOL so no possible security updates)

*sigh* Same here as above poster. Did a fresh install on both my desktop and laptop with 15 Alpha1 and now 142777 seg faults as both user and root. and 142300 launches but I can't actually create any virtual machines, the next and back buttons are greyed out. SMH

Ditto. Well, almost.
Did a fresh install earlier today and once done, 142777 would not run as root, but issuing the following command, as root,
Quote:
/usr/bin/vboxmanage extpack install --replace ~/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension-the-version you want to install
I was able to get it to run as user.

Sorry, I've forgotten the name of the user who was kind enough to provide that information.

After getting the extension pack installed it runs as root but not as user for me. I really hope Oracle gets this straightened out soon, this is getting annoying.

Ya beat me to it. I downloaded 142777 earlier today. Not to long ago did a search and found this:
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20198

I am running VirtualBox with the testing release VirtualBox-6.1.19-142894-Linux_amd64.run now with kernel 5.11.0.
