virtualbox won't launch: 'undefined symbol'

Postby cliffskoog on Sat Mar 14, 2009 3:36 pm

Any help here?
Running Elyssa, with newest virtualbox in repo - same as on their site.
I get:
VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen("/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: /usr/lib/libQtGui.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN23QCoreApplicationPrivate19checkReceiverThreadE P7QObject

Searches seem to point to a bug in qt4. Any ideas?
Thanks

SOLVED:
Following the spirit and sense indicated by a reply in the VirtualBox forum, I found I had both libqtcore4 and libqt4-core installed. I removed the first and reinstalled the second, and lo, virtualbox launches.
