Re: Virtualbox, anyone help?
- After seeing your thread and commenting on it, I decided to fix my own
issues with VB after an upgrade to 4.1.12. When I let Ubuntu upgrade it,
my Ubuntu 11.02, XP, and Vista virtual machines still worked but my
Windows-7 virtual machine would lock up on boot. I fixed that by just
creating a new virtual machine using the same virtual boot drive. I will
not upgrade again until I am forced to. I don't have time to straighten
out the potential messes that Ubuntu upgrades can cause.
I did a little gathering of knowledge for you. I think that the
following is what you need.
The following link takes you to a table of requirements and issues of
all the OSes being used as Guest.
The following link is a White Paper on how to alternatively share
between Guest and host through the virtual local network.
The following is excerpts out of VirtualBox User Manual, page 56.
You can download the manual at:
"Guest Additions are designed to be installed inside a virtual machine
after the guest operating system has been installed. They consist of
device drivers and system applications that optimize the guest operating
system for better performance and usability."
"The VirtualBox Guest Additions for all supported guest operating
systems are provided as a single CD-ROM image file which is called
VBoxGuestAdditions.iso. This image file is located in the installation
directory of VirtualBox. To install the Guest Additions for a particular
VM, you mount this ISO file in your VM as a virtual CD-ROM and install
I hope this is some help.
