Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox Not Running

Jul 21, 2015

I recently installed debian testing, amd64, on my box and I am running the xfce desktop. When I login, I always get a bubble popup telling me that virtualbox is not running. Is it something I should be worried about? I use only Linux on my machine.

Debian :: VirtualBox Not Running - Browsers Not Working

Jun 11, 2011

First I wanted to install the proprietary software Virtualbox-PURE cuz there is usb support, I need.

Added the Repository and installed it (virtualbox-4.0) and dkms.
Here is my sources.list
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
# Debian Hauptrepos
deb [URL] squeeze main contrib non-free

# Debian Update-Repos
deb [URL] main contrib non-free .....

The result of all is:
virtualbox is still not running. I use experimental branch flash is not working now. flashplugin was installed, I restarted my browsers, not working. I tested it with opera, chromium and iceweasel.

My questions are:
How I ever can go back to stable?
How can I make virtualbox run?
How can I make flash run?

I'm using debian squeeze with gnome 2.30.5. When you need more infos or results of commands I give it to you. 2 days of work and nothing is running.

Debian :: Install On VirtualBox Running On Mac Server

Jun 15, 2011

I am running virtualbox on a Mac Mini Server. I would like to install Debian on it and give it an internal static IP address. E.g. 192.168.1.xxx

I am looking at all the downloads. The Mac Mini Server Snow Leopard has no CD/DVD but plenty of disk space.

It will be used as a LAMP webserver, Java, Ghostscript and pdftk but also install ISPConfig on it.

I was looking at this ISO: [URL] Is this ok?

The Mac is a 64 bit Intel based machine. If I wanted 64 bit on the VirtualBox, which 64 bit ISO should I get?

Debian :: Running A Gnome Lenny LiveCD In Virtualbox?

Jul 31, 2010

I have created a squashfs live CD from HD (Gnome - lenny ). It runs like a charm in a "fromhd" mode but when I try the iso or even a burned CD in virtualbox on the same PC, X does not start. It says:

Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0) /usr/bin/xorg: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//vesa_drv.so: undefined symbol: xf86GTFMode

Debian Configuration :: Virtualbox Crashes When Fullscreen Is Activated

Sep 22, 2015

I have installed installed Debian 9 (stretch/unstable) which has GNOME 3.16.3 and runs Linux kernel 4.1.0-2 by default in Virtualbox 5.0. The host OS is Windows 8.1 On each instance of activating full screen mode in the VM, a freeze occurs then an abrupt close (abort).

I am inclined to believe that this problem resides in the OS (Debian 9) rather than Virtualbox or the Host. The reason being is that prior to installing Debian 9 (today) I had Jessie installed for quite some time where this error/issue never surfaced.

This issue is rather complicated in the sense that if alternating between full screen and normal mode quickly, this occurs whereas, if done every 10 seconds or thereabout it happens almost seamlessly. Also, if 3DAcceleration is switched off that doesn't occur.

How do I find the root of this problem and a resolution to it?

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Network Interfaces With VirtualBox?

Mar 29, 2010

I have a rather urgent problem with my network, I got two virtual network interfaces one internal and one external. The problem is; I can't get connection to internet. The external NIC is set as a NAT and the internal is... internal.

/etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.1.200
netmask 255.255.255.0

Running with this configuration makes my internet connect go away, however if I remove the configuration for eth1 everything is working fine.

Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox Doesn't See Any Network Settings?

Jun 3, 2010

I need to set up a little virtual network with Debian Lenny guests (the host is Debian Squeeze, but I don't think it matters). I installed Lenny in a VM and it works fine. Then I cloned the hard drive, garion@Laptop:~$ VBoxManage clonevdi Linux 1.vdi Linux 2.vdi created a new VM with exactly the same settings as the first one and booted the new disc. The problem is that there's no eth0 in the new VM, but it is in the original one. Also if I "unplug" the cable, dmesg won't notice anything. In the original VM it works fine. They both have the same virtual network card: PCnet-FAST III (Am79C973). I've also tried NAT as well as internal network settings.

Debian Configuration :: Virtualbox 4.1 Breaks Suspend / Hibernate?

Jul 25, 2011

I have installed the latest virtualbox 4.1 on my desktop and laptop. It hosed suspend and hibernate.

The laptop is A Dell D630 with Intel Core2 Duo CPU, the desktop is an AMD based ASUS M3N78-VM mobo with Athlon II x2 250 CPU. Debian Testing 32-bit (same results with the 2.6.39 and the 3.0 kernels). Both have nvidia cards though - the desktop an integrated 8200, the laptop a NVS 135M. But suspend/hibernate was working before with the 4.0 series virtualbox.

The workaround is to clear the vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxdrv modules from the memory before suspend/hibernate. I added the

service vboxdrv stop
rmmod vboxpci vboxnetadp vboxnetflt vboxdrv

lines to my sleep script (i dont use power managers, just the acpi powerbutton/lid scripts modified). Everything is ok now.

Debian Configuration :: VirtualBox: Host-only Networking: Static IP Guest Addresses?

Jun 6, 2011

Debian Testing host, Winduhs XP guest. Winduhs is not allowed to directly access The Internets, and I am not setting up bridging as that makes it possible for the guest to mount layer 2 attacks on the LAN. I need for the guest to tunnel through the host without being able to see anything on the host, so it can then get access to The Internets, while being protected by iptables (Shorewall).

Used to be with VMware I had host-only set and the guest in a different class c (192.168.2.1) from the host (192.168.1.1) I turned on ipforwarding, set Shorewall rules, and it all worked. Now I have everything set with VirtualBox, and it does not work. Guest can ping its interface but not host. Host can ping vboxnet0. Host is supposed to masquerade guest's 192.168.2.1 through to the default out at 192.168.1.1, but it's not. I think a clue is in routing, but I don't know what's wrong.

Debian Configuration :: Dual-Booting To XP - Busted - Program Phone Using VirtualBox Or Wine

May 30, 2010

I haven't used my XP partition for two years, but recently found that I could not program my phone using VirtualBox or Wine. So I tried booting to XP but it just comes up with a flashing cursor. update-grub2 and it sees the part, but same problem.

For some reason I'm suspicious of the Winduhs boot files, but I've run fixboot and the boot repair utility in Winduhs. Do I have to reinstall Winduhs?

Debian Configuration :: SNMP Not Running On 0.0.0.0:161?

Sep 15, 2010

I'm configuring a server for Zenoss monitoring over SNMP, but the SNMP process is running on 127.0.0.1:161 instead of 0.0.0.0:161, according to "netstat -an | grep -i udp".

Not sure why this is happening, but Zenoss reports that SNMP is not running due to this. My snmpd.conf file is the same as all of the other servers that are running SNMP, but this is the first Debian server I've tried to add (the other's are CentOS).

Debian Configuration :: Best Way To See What Is Running In The Background

Nov 3, 2010

I am running a dual-boot of LMDE and Debian Squeeze XFCE, and I actually have a Debian XFCE question. How can I tell what is running in the background. I have been tweaking my Debian install since I first installed it about 3 weeks ago, and I keep adding to the RAM usage. What is the best way to see what else is running out there and whether or not is it necessary?

Debian Configuration :: Running A Local Ftp Server?

Nov 2, 2010

What would be necessary to run an ftp server (or a web server) on my local PC so that other people I know could access it and download stuff from it? The idea is to share photos, videos etc with friends/family where the files are a bit too big for email. (All 100% legal, own-content, no copyright issues, needless to say). Security isn't that vital, I'd just put files in the ftp directory, email the link and let them download the files, then remove them again. No passwords are required, and no uploads.

Obviously there's the problem that both computers have to be on at the same time, and I assume I'd have to change my computer's firewall settings and my router's settings to allow the traffic through, but my question is more basic than that - is it even possible? My internet connection is through a router, and as I understand it, my router has the IP address, not my computer. So I can connect through my router using my computer's IP address, but only my router knows my computer's IP address, and all the rest of the internet just sees my router and its IP address. Which means (I think) that I can't just send my IP address for my family to connect to, because that only gets them as far as my router, and the router would have no idea what to do with such requests. Am I right so far?

So is there any way for my family's computers to contact an FTP server or a web server running on my computer? Or does it require some kind of intermediary server to act as a traffic-forwarder? Is there such a thing? I'm assuming that setting up little private torrents would be fiddly and inefficient. Or would it be better/simpler to use one of the free filesharing services and put up with the (sometimes not too family-friendly) adverts associated with them?

Debian Configuration :: INIT Not Running A Script?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a firewall script setup to run in rc2.d. There is a K99 for it and then an S99. The problem however, is that it isn't being called. No errors, no logs, nothing. The symlinks in /etc/rc2.d point to /etc/init.d/script, but nothing ever happens on boot or shutdown. I can manually do /etc/init.d/script start and it will start just fine, including printing a line that it is starting. What's going on here? The permissions are the same as the other scripts in the init directory, so I doubt that is a problem.

I've set up a cron job that simply echoes a date string to a file as a tester but it's not running. I've tried it under the root crontab, in /etc/crontab and set up in /etc/cron.daily.
