Process has died [Exit Code 139] - turtlebot_world.launch

Hi everyone,

I have ROS Kinetic installed on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in VirtualBox 5.1.18. I've been trying to run the Turtlebot simulation as per the textbook, Programming Robots with ROS, but when I do, this is the error message I receive:

[gazebo-2] process has died [pid 6649, exit code 139, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver -e ode /opt/ros/kinetic/share/turtlebot_gazebo/worlds/playground.world __name:=gazebo __log:=/home/user/.ros/log/cd1f826e-143e-11e7-ace8-080027336aef/gazebo-2.log]. log file: /home/user/.ros/log/cd1f826e-143e-11e7-ace8-080027336aef/gazebo-2.log [gazebo_gui-3] process has died [pid 6666, exit code 255, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/user/.ros/log/cd1f826e-143e-11e7-ace8-080027336aef/gazebo_gui-3.log]. log file: /home/user/.ros/log/cd1f826e-143e-11e7-ace8-080027336aef/gazebo_gui-3.log

I can make the simulation launch if I disable the 3D acceleration settings in VirtualBox but if I do, Ubuntu's UI lags really badly and becomes unusable for the most part. Is there any other fix to this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
