Virtualbox issues fresh Funtoo install



Hi guys,

I have a fresh installed Funtoo on a Threadripper environment.

When creating a new VM in Virtualbox I get following error message when creating the virtual disc:

Callee RC: NS_ERROR_ABORT (0x80004004)

without any more info. 

Even when starting Virtualbox from command line there are no further messages about that error.

Couldn't find any help so far.


Thanks for your help.

that was all I found

Installed packages are:





versions are 5.2.20 for all these packages

virtualbox-guest-additions still can't be compiled like mentioned above

Hi Checko,

just guessing that it might help to rename your preferences folder for Virtualbox, e.g.

mv ~/.VirtualBox ~/.VirtualBox.bak

On the next start of VirtualBox it will get recreated. Possibly the autogenerated files compreg.dat and xpti.dat could be causing issues if you had the wrong guest additions installed.

And, you can alternatively install the guest additions manually in the UI. No need to do it with emerge if that does not work.

meanwhile I have done a reinstall again.

Unfortunately that didn't help at all.

I've followed your suggestions, but without success.

The guest additions provided by portage are version 5.2.14 and virtualbox is 5.2.22. Guest additions (5.2.14) can't be compiled at all.

This is what dmesg gives me when I try to create a new VM:

nspr-3[26894]: segfault at 0 ip 0000000000000000 sp 00007f76061dabc8 error 14 in VBoxSVC[55e1e0ea8000+5d3000]

Modules are loaded and these are all virtualbox packages that are installed at the moment, all version 5.2.22 from portage.

Well, I remember I also once had problems with VirtualBox so I decided to switch to the binary package (virtualbox-bin). I also have just the virtualbox-modules installed, both in version 5.2.22 from portage. It might be worth a try, so if you uninstall everything related to Virtualbox and just emerge virtualbox-bin and virtualbox-modules I hope you will succeed. As a sidenote it is the case that in virtualbox-bin the executables changed from lowercase to camelcase. The additions can be installed manually from the UI, as said no need to do this with portage.

However, as I do not have a AMD Ryzen system the problem might be something completely different...

Hi again,

I finally got it running with virtualbox-bin and just recognized that a recent BIOS update seems to have switched off Virtualization.

Unfortunately something seems still be missing when uninstalling bin version and try to compile it by myself.

Maybe this is connected with the Threadripper?!

For now it will have to work like that.


Thanks for your help.

Good it worked for you so far! ?

I can imagine VirtualBox source ebuild or the installed guest additions have some issues. As said, I remember having problems with the source package on my Intel system too. But I have not investigated any further yet due to lack of time. I just switched to the binary package and that worked for me. So unfortunately I can not tell if this is a Threadripper related problem. I hope someone else can help you better than me. Perhaps you should consider writing a bug report on the Funtoo bug tracker. By the end of year I will also retry installing from sources.
