Fedora :: Virt-manager With KVM Does Not Have Sound With All Guests / Get That?

Dec 6, 2009

I tried virt-manager 0.8.0-7 or 0.8.1-1, my guest like fedora 12 i386, ubuntu i686, win xp do not have any sound even they detect the driver(es1370 or ac97) correctly. I doubt it is because of the pulseaudio and the qemu's user. Qemu uses not my user, it uses qemu user.

If I uses qemu-kvm directly, it has sound and work fine.

Fedora :: EasyPeasy And Virt - Manager?

Jun 2, 2010

I downloaded EasyPeasy (EP) to evaluate whether I wanted to put it on my wife's EeePC 900. I thought, why not install it in a virtual machine on my desktop system in order to play with it and see what needs to be done to get all the programs she will need working before I do the actual installation? So, I launched virt-manager, and tried to set up a virtual machine for EP 1.6. Well, it appears to be launching EP, but when it comes up, I have the top bar, but the tabs and lcons that should be on the desktop are nowhere to be found. When I try to shut it down, the shutdown freezes, so I wind up killing the virtual machine after waiting several minutes.

Every time I try to do this, I get the same results. This is whether I choose KVM or QEMU for the virtual machine. I have created it with 1 Gb RAM and 1 processor, then created a 16 Gb virtual drive. I started with 0 pre-allocated for the drive. I tried again one more time but this time actually allocating the full amount of the virtual drive before starting to see if it made any difference. It didn't.

I also noticed that it is not recognizing that I have a DVD with the ISO written to it (it is a bit too big for a CD). There is no option to use a USB thumb-drive or SD card that I can find. So, it appears I am stuck with using the ISO for this installation. It said that there was no disc in /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1, even though the proper disc was there.

Under advanced options, I have tried both X86_64 and i686 with equally bad results.

For Linux versions, although there is an option for Fedora 13 as a guest, there is not an option for Ubuntu Lucid, from which EasyPeasy 1.6 is derived. I have tried several of the install versions from the list in an effort to get this to work. It didn't.

Fedora :: Virt - Manager Display For Windows?

Sep 4, 2009

I have a VM with Windows XP that is driving me crazy. Everything works great except the display windows (and networking, but that is a different story) I am open VirtManager and go to display the OS and the images will get distorted. I will open IE and scroll down a webpage and some of the text will remain still and others will move, leave an image of garbage. This makes it very aggravating to use. To clear the page I can shake the window (using the cursor not my hands) or move from one tab to another till it clears.. then if I scroll again I have to deal with it all over again.

Fedora :: Using Virt-Manager (Console Screen Very Slow)

Dec 8, 2010

I'm using virt-manager with qemu/kvm to run a linux guest, but the console screen is TOO slow!

tessio@dhcppc0 ~]$ lsmod | grep -i kvm
kvm_amd 36872 6
kvm 257292 1 kvm_amd
tessio@dhcppc0 ~]$

When I access the guest with ssh and use it from there, it's fast like a real machine. It's only very very slow within virt-manager console. I am using Fedora 14 x86_64.

Fedora Servers :: Bridged Networking And Virt - Manager?

Feb 1, 2011

I have been trying to set up bridged networking, but I keep failing. I am using Fedora 14 x86_64 KDE as host with qemu-kvm and SPICE. The plan is to install a windows server, a few windows clients and then rawhide as guests on that. Naturally I want to use bridged networking for the windows guests.[URL]..But those both leave the guest without internet access. Is it really this difficult, or am I doing it wrong(tm)?

Fedora Servers :: Port Forward On The Fly Or At Startup With Virt Machine Manager And Kvm-qemu?

Jan 6, 2010

I'm running some vm's in FC12 with kvm-qemu and using virt machine manager. I'd like to have some ports automatically forward on startup and be able to add redirections on the fly. Redirection on the fly is talked about here, but I am getting lost on what should be basic instructions.[URL]

As far as startup, In the past I just ran qemu from the cli and manually specified redirection with redir. I can't figure out how to do it with The virt machine manager which I am using to start my VM's now. I do not want the guests to see the host. From cli startup without virt machine manager, it looked like this: qemu -m 256 -hda vm.img -redir tcp:5555::80 -redir tcp:5556::445 &

OpenSUSE :: Virt - Manager Fails To Start?

Jun 18, 2011

My first post on openSUSE, since migrating from Ubuntu (didn't like Unity!). I've installed the virtualization packages from YAST2 and when I attempt to run virt-manager, it crashes. The error is
Code: could not import gobject (could not find _PyGObject_API object) I've searched both these forums and via a general Google and although I've found posts, all of them are apparently resolved - but not mine.

My laptop is fully up to date and running Gnome 3 on openSUSE 11.4.Has anyone else come across this lately?

Slackware :: Install Xen Failed - Virt-manager Allow To Create Xen VMs Or Just KVM VMs?

Mar 8, 2011

I've been using KVM with great results on Slackware but one thing about Xen 4 that appeals to me is VGA and PCI passthru. I did try to install the Xen Slackbuild some time ago but failed. I'm afraid I can't remember why now. As far as I remember the Slackbuild was just out a day or so, so perhaps there were unresolved issues in the early days. How is Xen now? Does it run as well as KVM, for HVM as well as PV guests? Does virt-manager allow you to create Xen VMs or just KVM VMs? I'm very happy with KVM on Slackware (and Xen on NetBSD) but as I say, the Xen 4 release has some enticing features which pretty much do away with dual- and multi-booting. Full-throttle graphics in a VM?

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Graph Disk Io & Memory In Virt-manager?

Oct 6, 2010

I installed the latest 10.04.1 server minimal install and enabled the virtualisation option. I compiled enough X so that I could run virt-manager and I was able to create a couple of VMs and run them and manage them, but the problem is that in the graphs in manager, I can only get CPU usage, not Disk or Network IO. The options are greyed out. Am I missing something required for these graphs to work ?

Server :: Virt-Manager "make Sure Libvirtd Is Running"?

Jul 6, 2011

I have a tested and working ssh connection with my local network server. On Ubuntu it was simple to just add an ssh connection to Virtual Machine Manager to connect to 'hippopatamous.local' (yes thats the name of my server :P) but now that I'm in arch its different. I connect to the server using just 'hippopatamous' and on top of that its like the Virtual machine manager can't connect.

All it says is to make sure that libvirtd is running. I ssh-ed in to the server and make sure it was running. I even ran it on my local computer (this was before I remembered/realized this would be a server type daemon so running it locally wouldn't do anything)

Fedora :: VirtualBox Guests Hang After Kernel Update / Sort This?

Aug 7, 2010

After updating to kernel- (and updating all kmods) VirtualBox guests no longer boot.

I had a Windows guest (from now on refereed as Crapdows) that worked normally. After the update, I could get to the "Start Windows Normally" screen, but then Crapdows refused to boot. At first, I thought it was a crappy M$ bug, but after creating another VM (Doublecrap), and starting from scratch, I was able to get to the "Windows is loading files" screen, and then the guest hangs again.
This problem is generalized to all OS'es I've tried. In Ubuntu, I can get to the language selection screen before the installation freezes. The same applies for Fedora and SUSE guests.

Is it time to get my hammer?

Ubuntu Networking :: Vbox Guests On 2 Different Hosts Need To Connect?

Jul 15, 2011

In my home network I have two ubuntu desktops that are connected to a router. On each pc I have installed Virtual Box 3.2 and various OSes. I need to sometimes run multiple vm's at the same time which is very RAM intensive so I was wondering if there is any way to connect VM's on different hosts so that they appear they are in the same network? Various articles that show up as search results hardly pertain to what I want to do. Basically, I would like to make vm's visible in the network but on different hosts and with ip addresses that would reflect that those vm's are on a same network. Like ubuntu 1 has vm's a and b and ubuntu 2 has c and d. When I start all of the vm's, I would like them to connect to each other just like they are in the same network without "knowing" they are on different hosts.

Software :: VirtualBox : Start And Shutdown Guests VMs On Startup?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm preparing a vitualization server (host) with VirtualBox. This machine, running Debian, is intended to run in HeadLess mode, without GUI.
I've got some guests VMs running. But I was wondering about the best way to start this guests VMs on startup and shut them down kindly when host is shutdwon.

Virtual Machines run under non-root user. I was thinking about making a script in /etc/init.d/ in order to start certain VMs and to stop every VM running when system is halted. Is this really the simplest and most secure approach?
Actually I couldn't find very much on this subject in user manual or googlin' around.

OpenSUSE Network :: Routing From Host To Vmware - Server - Guests

I just installed (n this 11.2 system) vmware server (v 2.02), to have access to a few small systems. One of them is a 11.1 guest which I just upgraded to 11.3, successfully (almost).

I have a problem, though: from the host I can not ping/ssh the guest.

Guest to host works fine (including names).


The firewall is down on both sides. I don't see anything with iptraf in the guest. The IP addres of the guest is correct, unless I'm too tired to see.

A connection from mainserver to vserver1 or vserver2 is not possible; a ssh connection from mainserver to vserverx ends with a login to mainserver.

Debian Multimedia :: Virtualbox GUI Is Black Or Night Mode - Guests Boot OK

Oct 17, 2015

I posted this over in the VirtualBox forums but was directed to the debian forums as it was the debian fork.VBoxManage and all virtualbox GUI elements are black with white text ("night mode" in other apps) with no borders or other useful Gui bits. Apparently the board image quota is reached (?) but you can see it here: URL...All the guests work, it's just this GUI issue.

Code: Select allii  virtualbox                             4.3.30-dfsg-1+deb8u1                 amd64        x86 virtualization solution - base binaries
rc  virtualbox-4.3                         4.3.30-101610~Debian~wheezy          amd64        Oracle VM VirtualBox
ii  virtualbox-dkms                        4.3.30-dfsg-1+deb8u1                 all          x86 virtualization solution - kernel module sources for dkms
ii  virtualbox-qt                          4.3.30-dfsg-1+deb8u1                 amd64        x86 virtualization solution - Qt based user interface

vbox-install log on other board,I upgraded from Debian 7 stable to Debian 8 stable. I haven't used virtualbox in a long time, so maybe I somehow did this myself, but I'm not sure where that is if I did.

I couldn't find anything else in /var/log that would be useful. It's across all users. I checked the launch scripts /usr/bin/virtualbox, /usr/bin/ vbox manage, and /var/lib/virtualbox/*
