Ubuntu :: VirtualBox 3.1.8 - Virtual Machine Hangs During Boot?

May 13, 2010

I recently installed VirtualBox 3.1.8 r61349 from the deb file virtualbox- .1_3.1.8-61349~Ubuntu~lucid_amd64.deb onto a recent clean install of Lucid Lynx on my HP p6210f (6144 MB RAM, AMD Athlon II X4 620 CPU). I then imported a friend's VM and tried to boot it. The VM consistently hangs with the following showing on the console (this is the last 3 lines, for context):

NetLabel: protocols = UNLABELED CIPSOv4
NetLabel: unlabeled traffic allowed by default
NET: Registered protocol family 2

I thought initially it was a problem with my friend's VM, so I decided to create a new VM from scratch, and boot from a CentOS-5.4-i386-DVD instead, which I have done before with previous versions of VirtualBox. When I do that, I'm able to select my installation method (so I know it's booting from the CentOS ISO), and then it hangs at exactly the same point. I couldn't find any other mention of this problem, but it's a pretty recent release of VirtualBox - I think just days old.

The VM: OS Type=RedHat (presumed 32-bit), 1 processor, 1024 MB RAM

Fedora :: Start A Virtual Machine In VirtualBox?

Jul 4, 2010

Every time I try to start a virtual machine in VirtualBox I get this error:

Code:
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) The VirtualBox Linux kernel driver (vboxdrv) is either not loaded or there is a permission problem with /dev/vboxdrv. Please reinstall the kernel module by executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' as root. Users of Ubuntu, Fedora or Mandriva should install the DKMS package first. This package keeps track of Linux kernel changes and recompiles the vboxdrv kernel module if necessary. So I run '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' in the terminal as root and I get this:

Fedora :: VirtualBox - Failed To Start Virtual Machine

Feb 19, 2010

after upgrading VirtualBox from 3.0.x to VirtualBox-OSE-3.1.2-1.fc12.x86_64 VBox fails to start any virtual machine with error: Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-eth0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).

When I run

sudo /etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox-OSE.modules

I get
FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/2.6.31.12-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64/extra/VirtualBox-OSE/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format
FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetadp (/lib/modules/2.6.31.12-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64/extra/VirtualBox-OSE/vboxnetadp.ko): Invalid module format
Kernel is (obviously) kernel-2.6.31.12-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64, but same thing happens with any installed kernel, IE kernel-rt-2.6.31.12-1.rt20.1.fc12.ccrma.x86_64

I reinstalled VBox and kmods got rebuilt but the problem persists.

Applications :: VirtualBox - Failed To Open A Session For The Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2010

I'am using gentoo linux. After some system's updates VirtualBox stoped loading any virtual machine with error:

Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine. Virtual machine has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

Details:
Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {99404f50-dd10-40d3-889b-dd2f79f1e95e} Kernel log

Code:

So, i've rebuilded all VirtualBox dependencies with safe flags, then i've recompiled most of the sys-* packages also with safe flags. However VirtualBox still doesn't work.

UPD: virtualbox-bin-3.1.4

UPD2: 3.1.6 and ose-versions crashes with same errors

Fedora Installation :: Install F13 In Virtual Machine Within Virtualbox / But Its Not Working

Jun 28, 2010

My laptop is running Linux Mint 9 and I am trying to install Fedora 13 in a virtual machine within Virtualbox. However, it's not working. It takes forever to get past the initial white/blue loading bar when it first boots and then it just goes white, so I can't see anything. I've already tried modifying the bootline parameter of the live CD to include noprobe, noacpi, noapic, nousb, and nofirewire. However, the result is the same. Am I missing something? Is it possible to install this?

Fedora :: Installed CentOS 5 In Virtualbox But Can't Ping The Virtual Machine?

Mar 10, 2009

Running Fedora 10, I installed CentOS 5 in Virtualbox, but I can't ping the Virtual Machine...

From within CentOS, I can ping my laptop [known as the host?] but from the laptop I can't ping the CentOS Virtual Machine. I tried turning off the firewall on both too... CentOS was able to access the internet through my laptop right away without any configurations too.

Unless someone has an idea to resolve the above, I am also wondering about something else VirtualBox-related:

To see if it was possible to get around the above issue, I was going to install another CentOS virtual machine to see if I can get them to communicate both ways [if at all], but to do so, I think I have to install CentOS AGAIN on another allocated amount of hard disk space. This will take some time, so I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to just create a quick duplicate of the previous installation, if you wanted 2 different virtual installations of the same OS.

General :: Get Virtual Machine (virtualbox) Accessible On Company Network?

Jul 11, 2011

I created an archlinux vm guest using virtualbox on my windows desktop at work. I'm planning to use it for django development because there are no unix machines available to use as a workstation at work.

From the vm guest I can ping/ssh to other machines in the network, but not the other way around. It's like even though the guest machine has an ip address on the network and a hostname, neither is recognizable.

Ubuntu Installation :: Lynx On VirtualBox OSE Hangs On Boot

May 1, 2010

I am planning on playing with the lynx on VirtualBox for a while just to do some test and maybe update my installation notes before moving everything but just can't get it to work.

Environment details:
OS: 9.10
Kernel: 2.6.31-21-generic
Machine: Compaq Presario B1200, 3 GB RAM, 14 GB available disk space
VirtualBox: VirtualBox OSE 3.0.8_OSE r53138

Problem: After starting up the virtual machine and reaching the purple screen (where a keyboard and accessibility icons are displayed at the bottom part), everything just goes black with an un-blinking cursor on the top-right. I already tried recreating the virtual machine, removing and creating a number of times, and I've also tried reinstalling VirtualBox but the problem still persists.

Ubuntu :: Slow Boot Time After Creating Virtual Disk For Virtualbox Guest

Jun 4, 2010

My laptop boot up time increased considerably (10 seconds) after allocating a virtual drive for virtualbox guest. The guest installation did not work so i removed it along with the virtual disk. Now everytime when i boot to ubuntu, after inputting my password in the login screen, it takes much longer to load the system. And during the loading time the disk activity indicator light blinks indicating the harddisk is actually busy loading the system.

I decided to search around for a possible answer and force reprofiling ureadahead does the trick Now boot time is back to what it used to be

Ubuntu :: Karmic 64bit Boot Hangs With 4GB In Machine?

Feb 19, 2010

I have Karmic 64 bit installed, originally with 2GB of memory. The motherboard will take up to 16GB, and I decided to double to 4GB. When I put in the 4 memory sticks (1GB each) and reboot, it gets past grub2, to the ubuntu "circle" symbol, the screen blacks out and that is it. No desktop, no further action that I can tell from the box, just a black screen. The video feed to the monitor, from what I get with the power light is gone and no activity on the drive.

If I take out one of the memory sticks, it boots happily up with 3GB and runs fine. Put the 4th back in, same behavior. I tried swapping out the old memory, putting in the 2 new sticks, everything works fine. Add in the other two (the old ones), the problem shows again. I thought I might be the last memory slot, so I removed the one from the 3rd slot, works fine. All in all, it works fine with 3GB, but hangs on boot with the 4GB.

General :: Cannot Boot Window Virtual Machine On OSX

Feb 4, 2010

In order to get the work done I use a Macintosh Macbook Pro (4,1) with a Boot camp partition running Windows 7.This allows me to use my favorite OS (OSX) with my required work environment (Win7 & .Net) when ever I need them.To allow me smooth usage I use Parallels 5 to virtually boot my Win7 machine from within OSX but whenever I want to do some heavy lifting I reboot into Windows 7 (on boot camp) which allows me to use my laptop's entire resources for my work.

My problem is this: I am now about to begin work for a company in Tel Aviv which uses Linux desktops for development and I need to follow suit. So I've given my self a new Quest: Set up the ultimate web development platform. My goal is this-

1. Install the three operating systems one along side the other - OSX, Ubuntu & Windows 7.

2. Set each one of them up in such a way that allows me to boot into it (meaning I can have any one of these OSs running on its own when I want.

3. Use parallels to virtually boot my Win7 partition - this allows me to keep using Office 2007, which I use often.

4. optional! Use parallels to virtually boot the Ubuntu OS also.

I have managed to complete goal 1 & 2.But I simply can't get 3...In theory it isn't a problem to install windows & OSX along side each other and virtually boot the windows under OSX using parallel's bootcamp virtualizer- BUT - the moment I install Linux along side the other two it break's parallel's virtualizer and it can't boot. I think it is due to parallel's in ability to use GRUB but I'm not actually sure about that.

I am considering compromising and going for a system like this:

1. Install OSX and Ubuntu on the laptop - which means I can boot into each of them.

2. Create a virtual machine for Win7 using parallels.

But that will be a real compromise as far as I'm concerned and I hope to find a way to set up the machine as I described earlier (three OSs which can be booted independently and also loaded in VMs).Just to make sure I'm clear - I HAVE MANAGED to install three independent OSs on the same machine - but that always prevents me from booting them as VMs using parallels...

Ubuntu Networking :: Set Up A VPN Connection From With Virtual Windows XP - Virtualbox

Feb 1, 2010

Trying to set up a VPN connection from with Virtual Windows XP (virtualbox) and the network shows verifying user name and password but then times out and give me a message that it could not connect to the serve.

Since I could connect from a Windows system at another location, I assume there is something in Ubuntu that is preventing the connection so I tried to set up a VPN connection in Ubuntu.

I installed "network-manager-pptp" and "pptp-linux" as mentioned in the documentation but when I try to create a VPN connection using [main menu]>[System]>[Preferences]>[network connections] the VPN tab has a padlock on it. I set up the VPN but did not put a DOMAIN name on it because the server does not have a DOMAIN and it did not appear to be necessary on the dedicated Windows machine.

In spite of configuring the VPN connection, I cannot find the connection anywhere so I can see the server at the other end.

When I try to use [main menu]>[places]>[Connect to Server] using [windows share] and enter the IP number of the server, I get the message "Cannot display location smb:// {server IP address}"

And if anyone knows why the Virtual windows cannot connect.

Networking :: Setting Up A Virtual Network Using Virtualbox?

Oct 26, 2010

So I'm wanting to learn a bit more about networking (ok, ALOT more), and I was thinking of trying to setup a virtual network via Virtualbox on my desktop, and as seperated from the internet as humanly possible (preferably no connection whatsoever).

Ignoring a few of the obvious problems (like my little dual core potentially running half a dozen VMs on 2G RAM), I am wanting some guidance as to what programs I would need or some documentation on setting things up.

I have no real clue where I would want to start with this, but I want it as a testbed for future toying with, to learn from, and just generally as something for me to hack at to see what does what, how, and why.

Ubuntu :: Virtualbox Guest Machine Can't Reach Internet?

Feb 12, 2010

I have a Windows XP virtual machine under Virtualbox PUEL 3.1.2. I have always been able to browse the Web or do anything else I wanted over the network.

Suddenly, the guest XP machine can't reach the Internet any more. There is no indication of any problem with the network connection. I checked my router, and the virtual machine is indeed getting assigned an IP address. So why can't it reach the internet?

Yes, the virtual network adapter is in bridged mode. It always worked that way before. I can see local network shares from the virtual XP machine, and even reach the Apache server running on the host OS (Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit).

Also possibly significant: Even though the virtual XP machine is detected by the router & assigned an IP address, the printer attached to the virtual XP machine cannot be seen by another Windows machine (a real one, not virtual) on the network. I never had a problem sharing the printer before. I have to share it from a virtual Windows XP machine when I'm running Ubuntu because there are no Linux drivers available (it's a Winprinter).
