OpenSUSE :: Data Corruption In VirtualBox 4.0.4 From

Mar 7, 2011

Observed on two host systems both with openSUSE 11.3 32 bit using ext4: When a big files, in this case a 1.2 GB and a 1.7 GB is copied from DVD, usb harddrive or shared folder into a Windows 7 32 bit guest system, the copied file is corrupted. The md5sum has changed and until the guest system has been rebooted successive md5sum tests on the same file comes up with various results... After a reboot md5sum tests show consistent results, but a sum different from the original file.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Start VirtualBox Kernel Modules - Error Stopping VirtualBox Kernel Modules

Mar 23, 2011

I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:


When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?

OpenSUSE :: How To Use VirtualBox To Run Win 7 VM

Aug 10, 2011

I have been going through forums and following "how to's" and walkthroughs on how to use VirtualBox to run my Win 7 VM. I have a pre-created VHD that I am importing to my OpenSuse 11.4 machine. One vhd was created in Hyper-V and has hardware and cpu cross compatibility turned on. Everything works perfect when booting it up on my Hyper-V server. When I move it over to my OpenSuse VirtualBox the VM will not boot. It gets to the "Starting Windows" screen and then throws an error screen that the VM encountered errors while booting. It then runs the Window's startup recovery tool and even tried to do a system restore. Nothing works and it never progresses beyond that point. Figuring there was something with the vhd file. I used Acronis Advanced Backup and Recovery to create a non hardware dependent backup that was automatically converted to a vhd. I know the process works as that is how I have converted the bulk of the servers at work into VM's. However, when I move the vhd file to the OpenSuse VirtualBox... it does the same thing.

So I am trying to figure out what might be going on here. Is VirtualBox not able to virtualize Win 7? If not then what VM software should I use? VMWare, Xen, ???

OpenSUSE :: Which Is Right Virtualbox-repository?

Apr 26, 2010

A long time I used the Virtualization:VirtualBox-Repository (which is still suggested in the yast-repository-module) to get the latest version, but the version 3.1.6 is still missing here.I found that this repository will be dropped and instead Virtualization:VirtualBox_backports should be used.But the packages there have two problems:No localization is available, you can just use english.The kernel-modules are just available for Kernel (there is no update-repo for updated kernels)

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox 3.2 Hogs CPU At 100%?

May 26, 2010

I tried upgrading today from VirtualBox 3.1 to 3.2 (VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.0_61806_openSUSE111-1.x86_64.rpm) on my openSUSE 11.2 system and it's not cooperating. The installation itself went fine, but as soon as I try to start a guest, the VirtualBox process ramps up to 100% and stays there until I poweroff the guest. The guest itself is VERY slow. These guests worked fine on 3.1.

For example, if I start an openSUSE guest and stop the Grub counter, therefore leaving the screen at the Grub bootloader, the VirtualBox process remains at 100% forever, without any activity on the guest.I also have a Windows guest and it has the same problem.

I can obviously try downgrading again to 3.1, but I was hoping that someone else has run into this issue and knows what to do about it.

OpenSUSE :: How Update VirtualBox To 3.2?

May 27, 2010

I'm trying to update VirtualBox but I'm getting a few problems:

1. When I go into YAST, it doesn't show any other versions available (just 3.0.x)

2. When I download the rpm from the website, I keep getting some insanely long error that says something about NOKEY perhaps? (It's a long error that gets cut off by the screen height)

OpenSUSE :: Installing The VirtualBox 3.2.2 OSE?

Jun 6, 2010

I currently have vbox 2.0.6 OSE and its been running awesome except I get errors with directx when running 3D apps cause of the video card driver that comes with vbox(at least so far thats I narrowed it down to). So, Im trying to update to 3.2.2 but cant seem to find an easy way to do it. I downloaded the RPM for OpenSUSE 11.1 from Sun's website and when installing it I got errors about files conflicting with the previous version. So I ran a "zypper rm vbox" to remove the current one and then ran the RPM again and it seemed to finish the installation fine, I just cant find it to run it.I currently have the 2.0.6 version installed again just so I can use it... but now am back to trying to get 3.2 installed before looking in another direction.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Not Starting?

Jul 28, 2010

So after a series of uninstalling and reinstalling VirtualBox to get the updated version, I was able to get it installed and working but it seemed to be crashing my computer as everytime i walked away for 10 minutes and came back, it would be at the login screen. It never did it while I was on it though so I never saw any errors. Now after a couple days of that... Whenever I start it I get an error:

Failed to create VirtualBox COM object
The application will now terminate.
Could not load the settings file '/home/user/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml'

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox 4 Changes Permission On /usr?

Feb 26, 2011

i have virtualbox installed from the oracle virtualbox repositorie and had trouble with running virtual machines. It was a permission error: VERR_SUPLIB_OWNER_NOT_ROOT

Turns out after some searching that the permission had changed on /usr to
owner:chris and group:vboxusers. Directories inside /usr still belonged to the user root and the group root.

I don't know how much of a security issue this is, but i wanted it to let
you all know just in case it is. I changed /usr again to root:root and all is well again.

OpenSUSE :: 2 Out Of 3 Usb Devices Work In Virtualbox?

Dec 9, 2009

Host is x64 openSUSE 11.2
guest is winxp pro
VirtualBox ver 3.0.12

The install and setup of VirtualBox is good and working.

I'm having a perplexing issue with usb devices. I have three usb devices connected to my system - apc battery, sd carder, and a Logitech joystick. All devices work on the host. I can connect the apc and the card reader to the guest and they work perfectly. But not the Logitech joystick. I get this error, same as I've seen in some other threads:

Failed to attach the USB device Logitech Force 3D Pro [0600] to the virtual machine winxp1. Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_READ_ERROR)

under "details" is this:

Component: Console
Interface: IConsole {0a51994b-cbc6-4686-94eb-d4e4023280e2}

When I installed I modified my fstb:

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part1 / ext4 noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 1

OpenSUSE :: Installing Vista In VirtualBox?

Jan 21, 2010

I installed VirtualBox, and I want to install Vista on it. I just have the copy of vista that came with my computer. I made the back up disks for it, and tried to use them to install it in the virtual box, but it said it was unable to install in that machine.

After that I looked in my windows partition and found the product ID for the vista copy. My question is: Can I download a copy of Vista and then use the product ID of my copy to make the installation in the VirtualBox? Are there any technical or legal reasons not to do this?

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox On 11.2 Free Version And USB?

Mar 11, 2010

VirtualBox is successfully installed on my openSUSE 11.2 and the guest OS is Win XP. I am looking for a way to acomplish two things from the guest OS:-use USB -use internet connection

On the first one, I've run into a howto for openSUSE 11.2 that says usb access for guest OSes in VBox is supported only in the binary (non-free) version. Since I am running the free one, does that mean I am out of luck on usb matter?

On the second one, I am puzzled as well. WinXP image is already installed and I tried to configure its networking via the "settings" section in VBox which gives me several options out of which none is for setting up IP's. How do I get internet connection that openSUSE host already has to share it with the guest OS within VBox?

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Autostart Script ?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm trying to set up Virtualbox to run as a service so that it auto starts the VM when the PC boots and shuts down the VM when the PC is shut down.

I've found a set of scripts that do this but set up of the scripts was written for Ubuntu so I'm stuck at one of the steps.

The set of scripts can be found HERE

The part of the install that I'm not sure about is the part in bold. I know what it's trying to do (basically start the script last during the boot process and stop the script first during shutdown) but don't know how to do it in oS.

VBoxTool currently consist only of a set of scripts. With this scripts, virtual machines of VirtualBox in a Linux headless server can be controlled. Start, stop, save, backup and show status of sessions in batch mode from the command line.

Usage and installation is tested only on Ubuntu. Please report if a specific function is not working in another environment, say OpenSUSE, Fedora, etc.

OpenSUSE :: Virtualbox Won't Connect To Internet?

Mar 11, 2011

I have VirtualBox 4.0.0 running on open SuSE 11.3 64bit. It works well. My connection to the internet is via a Pantech UML290 usb modem. I can select the usb device and use the Verizon Access Manager to connect to the internet. It says it is connected, but there doesn't seem to be a real connection. I can't hit any web sites with my browser. How can I get this working? I have also tried connecting via Linux then from within VB selecting the usb device, but that just disconnects the modem in the process.

OpenSUSE :: Making A Bootable ISO From DVD For VirtualBox?

May 23, 2011

I started with a bootable Windows 7 Upgrade DVD. I tested the DVD by booting from DVD in a physical drive. The system put up a "press any key to install from CD/DVD" and it worked. Now, I attempted to make a bootable ISO for VirtualBox... To make the ISO, I used this:

dd if=/dev/sr0 of=windows7.iso bs=2048 conv=sync

which I've read will clone the DVD and its boot ability? Is this correct? When I start VirtualBox, version 4.0.8 r71778, I get the "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted." The IDE Primary Master (CD/DVD) is set to see windows7.iso, so I suspect it sees the ISO, only it doesn't appear to be bootable. SATA Port 0 is set to Windows 7.vdi. Am I missing a step somewhere? The system is running openSUSE 11.4.

OpenSUSE :: VirtualBox 4.0.8 Unable To Open VMs?

May 24, 2011

However, I do not consider myself a Linux pro - I hardly ever use the command line etc.

I have been using the Free personal version of VirtualBox for about 3 or 4 years and have had no problems in any version of OpenSuse (at least none that were not easily fixed). I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.4 several weeks ago and cannot get Virtualbox to work. I have tried installing from the opensuse 11.4 package on the VBox site and I have run their generic command line installer and either way I am unable to open my VMs.

When I used their generic installer I got the following errors:
linux-evl8:/home/frank/Downloads/VBox # ./
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox for Linux installation...........
VirtualBox Version 4.0.8 r71778 (2011-05-16T17:05:29Z) installer


I did a reinstall of OpenSuse for several reasons and it is working great in everyway except I am still having this issue and at this point I am lost as to what to do next.

OpenSUSE Install :: VirtualBox, Use It To Run Windows?

Feb 25, 2010

openSUSE, just installed 11.2 some days ago and have several problems with kernel 2.6.31 and my hardware, i was wondering if there is a way to upgrade it to version 2.6.32... that i know i dont have any problems with it.The problems that i have is with my ath9x driver, iv'e experience it before with other distros and the same kernel (2.6.31)Another question i have is about VirtualBox, i use it to run windows, and i'm amazed of the lack of speed and performance i have in openSUSE, i dont know if it's because i'm doing something wrong, quite possible since i'm not familiar with the -suse way- of using linux... i read the wiki about virtualbox made all that it's said (used OSE and non-OSE) and nothing changed... it's unusable. i used to use it in other distros with no problems, but in suse i have alot of issues.

apart from all the issues i have concerning speed and performance in openSUSE it's worth of a try.hope that configuring it better will speed up and increase performance.btw, i have a amd athlon x2 2.1ghz, ati radeon hd3200 using fglrx module and 4gb of ram.
