This is the case with the second crash, but I have since upgraded to 8.1.

A clean install of the OS? I am not 100% sure of what you mean here.

I have rebuilt and fixed dependency issues. It took me a while to
clean up the issues so that vbox would even build. I had some stale
includes that were not removed by their scripts. After removing by
hand, I was able to rebuild all of these old dependencies and fixed
other issues on my server. It is amazing how one little file can
cause so much grief.
