How to Fix a common VirtualBox Segfault

If you have a segmentation fault during the start of a VirtualBox machine, you are likely using an old, incompatible version of the VirtualBox Extensions. Simply update or uninstall them and things should work again.

An example from the dmesg kernel log:
EMT-1 [7265]: segfault at 618 ip 00007f0eaacbef31 sp 00007f0ed2afbc70 error 4 in [7f0eaac00000+26f000].

  1. Thanks for the hint, indeed segfault was caused by non-standard additions installed.
