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).
FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/18.104.22.168-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64/extra/VirtualBox-OSE/vboxnetflt.ko): Invalid module format
FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetadp (/lib/modules/22.214.171.124-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64/extra/VirtualBox-OSE/vboxnetadp.ko): Invalid module format
Kernel is (obviously) kernel-126.96.36.199-174.2.19.fc12.x86_64, but same thing happens with any installed kernel, IE kernel-rt-188.8.131.52-1.rt20.1.fc12.ccrma.x86_64
I reinstalled VBox and kmods got rebuilt but the problem persists.
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:
When i try to create a virtual machine using the Windows 7 Enterprise Evaluation iso file, everything goes as planned untill i click on the start button. when i click on it i get two error messages. the first: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Windows 7. The virtual machine 'Windows 7' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1. 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. reinstall the kernel module by executing
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. i have installed the DKMS package, but when i try to run the command stated in the error message, i get another error message in the terminal:
i have to install the driver that is specified (vboxdrv) but i do not know where to find it.
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.
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?
I get errors when trying to manage my VM with Virtual Machine Manager.When adding the disk img, it complained that it didn't have search rights and tried to fix it but failed.It let me move on so I moved forward.I then built the VM and I couldn;t start it from within VMM.
How do I program a virtual machine to auto-start/boot upon boot up of the host system? I am experimenting with SNORT network intrusion detection system and have installed it inside a virtual ubuntu box which I want to start automatically.
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
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.
My goal is to install Windows 7 on a virtual machine running on Ubuntu. The Lenovo machine came with Windows 7 installed, but did not come with a boot disk. What are my options? Should I ask Lenovo for a disk? Will I need to purchase Windows just for the virtual machine?
I have installed CentOS on a VMwareWorktation and that CentOS, i also install VMware Server (suscess) and setup a guest OS that, but i start this Guest OS, an error show "You may not power virtual machine in virtual machine"...
how do I set up a virtual machine in Fedora 14? Do I do it through Quemu? I did not see Virtualboxose within the repositories. If some one would be so kind as to instruct me (please simple step by step instructions for setting up a virtual machine or for downloading and installing Virtualboxose or any other version of Virtualbox I would forever be indebted to you. I would like to install Fedora on my laptop instead of Ultimate Edition 2.8 of which I am getting tired of any Ubuntu based distribution.Oh by the way I tried the new Gnome 3.0 shell with Laughlin 15 and I was impressed. I can't wait til it is released. Also could someone point me in the right direction as to where I might ask, request, or just offer suggestions for software packages to be placed within the repositories.
I'm having some issues with a windows virtual machine. The system is Fedora 11 and the virtual machine is Windows 2008 Server. If I start the virtual machine from the virtual machine manager, it only has a single cpu despite my setting it to eight. If I start the machine from the command line, I can get four cpus but not eight. In both cases windows seem to display the eight cpus in the device manager (or whatever program it is). It has been suggest that windows was imaged on a four core machine before being loaded on the eight core machine and that something in windows is maxing at four cores. But that doesn't explain why the virtual machine manager can only start one cpu. I just played around on my home machine with a fedora 10 live cd and it recognized the two cores on that machine and used them from the virtual machine manager without problem. Also upped it to three cpus without problem.
I have a reader program which runs only in windows. Now I have a windows xp installation iso on one of the partitions. How can I set up a virtual machine environment of windows xp, so that I can run windows programs? I've tried wine but I cannot figured that out. I think a virtual machine is the choice. but do I also need install those drivers and microsoft stuff, like direct X 10?
I am experiencing a multicpre problem with fedora14 / kernel 184.108.40.206-45.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP. (standard from the distro). The host has a total of 2 cores .yet a virtual machine started with 'smp 2' ( or xml : <vcpu>2</vcpu>) will not run on 2 pyhs cores . it will use just 1 core ('top' at the host shows 100%cpu while running an endless loop process on the VM) and libvirt 'virsh vcpuinfo <vm name>' shows only 1 physical cpu used (although 2 vcpus are used : 0, 1) The kernel seems to be an SMP one ( so says the uname -a . what does '#1 SMP' mean ?) . Am I missing something ? same XML on a DEBIAN machine will run the VM with 2 phys cores as should although the host there has 4 cores (>2)Should I recompile the kernel src with some addtional flag ?
I am new to fedora core and needs desperate help.Now what i can notice is the kernel files doesnot match. will this makes a difference..what do you think ? How can i make the VirtualBox kernel module status [OK] ?
I used qemu sucesfully on F9 but I can't find it on F10. I can't create a virtual machine. I tried installing qemu from rpms that I found on their site without any luck. How can I create a virtual machine on F10?
I tried to yum install libvirt but it says it is the latest.I have also checked that i have the latest qemu-kvm virt-manager virt-viewer python-virtinst.I understand that the error msg says that it is unable to find that certain file, libvirt-sock, and i dun think i have it either.
We have a virtual XP machine on our fedora 11 install. I want to drop fedora 11 down to init3 (since its a server anyway) and everyone is worried about the windows virtual machine dying. What would happen to my windows virtual machine if I drop the host server to init 3?
I have the virtual machine manager in fedora 11.On Dell Inspiron 1545 (dual core, 2GB RAM)I can not run any linux distribution virtualized Using Qemu as engine.The virtualized system boots but after not working.Try distributions of 32 and 64 bit.
I can create a virtual machine I named vm1 and the virtual-machine manager says it's running.
I don't know how to load windows XP.
The vm1 virtual machine console is frozen with the message "Booting from hard drive." But I know it can't boot from hard drive because I haven't loaded windows XP yet. When I created the vm1 virtual machine I put the windows XP CD in the optical drive and directed the menu to the CD. I heard it running, but still the console is trying to boot from the hard drive. I never got to the point where it asked me any windows XP software loading questions.
I have an F12 installation on which I have installed NoMachine's NX server. I can remote in nicely when needed (try to do as much as possible via SSH) while not having to boot into and stay on Gnome on the server and run VNC.I noted that when I try to start the Virtual Machine Manager from an NX session, I get an error that VMM is "unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon". libvirtd is running, however. And, when I startx on the server and try there, VMM works fine.Is this an inherent problem with the use of VMM, or something correctable?
