I was just astonished about the bus-numbering. Sometimes it is not enough to see it working - it is always interesting to know why it is working this way...


Excuse my curiosity...

Upgrade Warnings (DE / EN) / Re: intel graphics factsheet
« Last post by mld on Yesterday at 20:45:09 »
Maybe a good place to add another hint concerning intel graphics. Since Kernel 4.8 booting up on certain core2duo/Dualcore setups with intel GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller can get a bit quirky (like on my Inspiron 1525). The combination of KMS and SVIDEO resulted in slow booting up, instabilities and/or freezes.

Luckily on the arch wiki a kind of workaround can be found.

E.g. adding a  video=SVIDEO-1:d to my grub.cfg fixed it

Thanks piper for your support.
I usually install it directly from debian, but I have also tried it from Oracle. Any version after 5.1.18 causes me the same error.

Of course, I already tried also with the advice of the links that you send me. That's why I said I'm crazy about this error. I use other programs that use Qt, like Kile, without any problems.

How did you install vbox  ? Straight from debian or downloaded from oracle ?

I have no problems (debian version)  and use it daily to test siduction and my builds

You could try as root after purge

Code: [Select]
updatedb

then reinstall


Code: [Select]
piper@x1:~$ apt policy virtualbox
virtualbox:
  Installed: 5.1.22-dfsg-1
  Candidate: 5.1.22-dfsg-1
  Version table:
 *** 5.1.22-dfsg-1 500

        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Hello,
I'm crazy because of a VirtualBox error that I can not solve.
Quote
Qt FATAL: This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
in "".
Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, xcb.
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Of course, reinstallation does not help at all, I even got to have a full purge and it keeps the error when reinstalling.
ldd -r /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxRT.so shows no problems (pastebin).
ldd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so shows no problems (pastebin).
Going manually to version 5.1.18 serves as a workaround, but I would not like to keep it that way.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.

@tommy2 - right - and same is true for transparent disc encryption and bios passwords - and the upcoming kernel support for it, if i read the changelog right. That will ease a lot of things, sorry for the users with rotational devices ... 8)

melmarker, once again I agree with you unless your system has the bios password protected and boot from usb and cdrom turned off. I'm just thankful that I'm the only one getting to my box and don't need the extra security envolved.  :)
