Subject: [gentoo-user] inaccessible virtual machine

1 Hello,
2
3 I have been using a windows 7 virtual machine guest with a gentoo linux
4 virtualbox host for a while. I was never able to get sound working on
5 the guest but it works on the host. Recently I decided to re-emerge
6 virtualbox with the USE flag pulseaudio to try to get sound working.
7 After the emerge (list below) I also re-emerged the
8 virtualbox-modules-3.2.12; logged out and rebooted.
9
10 Now when I try to start virtualbox, it lists the guest machine as
11 inaccessible; no other information is provided by the virtualbox startup
12 window. I would appreciate inputs on how to fix this.
13
14 Thanks,
