I fixed the problem by uninstalling the virtualbox installed in software center. Then install the deb package from official site.

Solution that worked for me: Go on this link http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/ Find the exact version of your Virtualbox and download the VBoxGuestAdditions_version.iso Then plug it into the VM and allow it to run (it was automatic for me). Hope this helps.

I was also having connectivity issues on Ubuntu installed on Virtual Box on my Windows 8.1. I was going crazy as none of the solutions (on this forum and others) worked for me. Out of the blue, I decided to uninstall Anti-Virus installed on Windows and restarted it. The next time I opened the same VM with Ubuntu, and it worked!

Here is how I think you can fix your problem. Download Plop Boot Manager from here onto your computer with VirtualBox installed Extract the zip file. Open VirtualBox, select the your Virtual Machine, click on "Settings" (The Yellow Gear). On the sidebar settings window, click storage. Under "Controller IDE" click the empty disk (or add one if there isn't ...

I'm not sure i understood your question, but i think i did. The reason you can't see the iso on the USB, is because the guest os doesn't have access to the USB. If you're using VM VirualBox you need to turn off your guest os and go to setting, and make sure that usb controller is enabled, then (if i remember right) you can add the USB while the virtual ...

Just as in a bare metal system we can also boot our virtual machine from a live CD .iso we had mounted as a CD-ROM to our virtual machine. Make sure you leave the hard disk boot order allowing to boot from CD-ROM first. After that we will boot this machine from a live session where we can access the still attached virtual drive from GParted. Consider ...

There is an option in Virtualbox of using a raw disk. Details can be found here... http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#rawdisk This is what you're looking for out of that page... VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /path/to/file.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda

The answer can only be it depends on the tablet hardware. If the tablet is x86 based then yes, you will be able to use wine or VirtualBox. If it is arm-based then the most likely answer is no. You should be able to run a x86 emulator in arm, but it'll be too slow to run windows programs, and you'll be able to run some arm Windows apps through wine but this ...

Even I faced the same issue. After lots of searching on the web,I finally realized that virtualization was disabled in BIOS settings which was causing this issue. I Enter in to BIOS settings, search for Virtualization and Enable it. Problem is solved!! !

Run the command egrep -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo from an open terminal to see if this is possible. 0 means no and 1+ means yes You may still be able to run a virtual machine if the answer is no but it will run really slow. see here for more info If you want to run windows programs on ubuntu, just install wine and you won't need virtualization. ...

By default, after installing apache2 the website root is located under: /var/www/ or /var/www/html/ (depending on the Ubuntu version you installed). So, in order to test your php, you'll need to move them to that location and set the correct ownership. Again, with apache, the file owner should be the system user www-data. Asuming your file is called ...

It happens sometimes with fresh installs. In the upper left corner of the dead window Right-click on the small icon and choose power off computer. Wait a bit, and start your Mint again. Run the updates, and your system should work nicely. My guess is that its the guest client settings that's not quite up to date. As a bonus you will probably get the VM ...

Okay so I tried and got the same problem. You can get round it by using a IDE controller based HDD rather than a SATA ( which is default ) Edit your VM -> Settings -> Storage, then add a HDD to the IDE controller and delete the SATA controller. Reboot the it should work okay.

I wouldn't count this as an answer, and I don't have the rep to comment, but if you haven't seen it already, this page and this other question might at least help get you going in the right direction.

The only solution that worked for me was removing Virtual Box and installing the latest version from the VirtualBox website (version: 4.3.10 (repo) vs. 4.3.22 (website)).

Regardless of whether the server is a real or a virtual machine, you will need to forward the appropriate port(s) across your LAN router, i.e. translate from the public IP you obtained from ifconfig.me to the server's private IP. You will need to refer to your router's documentation to see how to do that for your specific device. If you wanted to use the VM ...

As long as you always mount your separate data partition I can see little if no benefits for the security aspects you mentioned. Any mounted partition including your data partition can be written to by you and by all your applications in case you had the appropriate permissons. A virtualised Windows will however only be able to access you data in case you ...

It seems your network filters access to port 11371, which is used by the hkp protocol by default. To workaround this issue, select another key server that is also available on port 80, by adding the --keyserver hkp://p80.pool.sks-keyservers.net:80 flag to add-apt-repository. This selects one of the key servers available on port 80 from the SKS key server ...

Within a chroot, it is likely that resolv.conf is not properly set up (it could be a symlink to a non-existent file, or it could be empty and so on). Therefore a common bit of advice when setting up chroots is to copy the host's resolv.conf: mv chroot/etc/resolv.conf{,.bak} cp /etc/resolv.conf chroot/etc/resolv.conf Then you can restore the original, if ...

You just increased the capacity of the physical file (or virtual disk), you still need to modify the partition table contained inside the virtual disk. You'll need to mount the ISO file used for the installation on your VirtualBox. Start a live session and execute GParted It should be fairly easy with the graphical interface. If for any reason GParted is ...

I WORK AROUND THIS ISSUE USING A PREVIOUS KERNEL! user283885 is offering good solutions. I try other (previous) kernel. You may try a newer or previous kernel (from the ones available in the apt-cache list 3.16*). Here is the test i made: My actual kernel: 3.13.0-45-generic uname -a Linux pc-01 3.13.0-45-generic #74~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 15 ...

13.13 seems to be an old kernel from trusty? Whereas 3.16 is the kernel shipped with utopic. If you ran do-release-upgrade lately, and you still use the old kernel be advised that all your old repositories ( where the old kernel headers reside) are disabled/cleaned from /etc/apt. Usually doing a release upgrade bumps the kernel minor by at least 2 versions ...

If your guest OS is running a Desktop session (i.e X server started), you could use the following command to open a terminal. From your Host OS, open a terminal and type: ssh <user>@<ip_of_guest> DISPLAY=:0.0 gnome-terminal Just replace <user> and <ip_of_guest> with your real username and guest ip.

I figured this out after finding http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/170580/package-linux-headers-3-13-0-27-generic-has-no-installation-candidate and noticing that 14.10 should have shipped with the 3.16 kernel from the start. This machine was upgraded from 14.04 to 14.10 using do-release-upgrade. However, the 3.13.x kernel from 14.04 was installed ...

As you suspect, you are not using the command right. The syntax of these usage messages takes some getting used to, but basically [--resize <megabytes>|--resizebyte <bytes>] means that the command takes an optional parameter, signified by the outer square brackets [...] that consists of either a resize value in megabytes i.e. ---resize ...

Since your data is important, I would try again to back it up. It's not entirely clear in your post if you remembered to get root when you were on the DVD. If you are in a terminal you can do this with the command sudo su. If you tried that and still have permissions issues, you may need to gain root another way. See this post ...

You can use Virtualbox in Linux and run any linux based OS. I myself use Ubuntu and run Centos in Virtualbox, there isn't any issue.

Virtualbox stores path information in the .vbox file, it includes the path to the mounted virtual cds, the hard disk path, shared folders paths, etc... The path changes when you change OS (from F:/something to /media/user/hexadecimal_number/something) and the information on the .vbox file becomes invalid. AFAIK you can't just share the same VMs seamless ...

In Trusty/14.04 there are a few more packages that need to be removed, or apt-get will complain. sudo apt-get remove linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-utopic libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic Then install xserver-xorg if not installed, reboot to old kernel version, remove 3.16 kernel(s) and you are good to go.

For that kind of setup, you don't need to do anything special. It's essentially just a normal desktop installation of Ubuntu, so at minimum all you need is one big partition, plus some swap space (usually in another partition). Unless you have any specific requirement that would require something else, I'd recommend just going with the default partitioning ...

Sometimes I look at this notice from time to time when installing Ubuntu on different PC devices, just to be sure in case I forgot something. :) I think this is plenty enough about partitioning.

This is where things start to become a matter of personal preference and recommendation. Unless you have special purpose for a dual boot system, I found switching back and forth tedious. But that is a matter of style and organisation. I use Virtualbox for those Windows only applications that don't cut Wine and avoid the reboot interruption. The Linux ...

You could use Disk Usage Analyzer/boabab to find what is taking up the space: You can then use dpkg -S /PATH/TO/FILE/OR/FOLDER to find what provides it and remove any unneeded packages. Careful some may be important Note with VirtualBox you can set up shared folders that link to folders on the host machine - if you close the VM, and set up a shared ...

When installing Ubuntu 14.04.2 from disc we will also install the HWE stack by default (this is not the case on upgrading a pre-existent 14.04 installation). By this a newer version (1.16) of the xorg-server will be provided. Virtual Box supports this Xorg-Server only from version 4.3.16 and later. Earlier versions do not support the newer Xorg server. ...

Ok, I've found a solution to this issue: Once you that screen appears, hold the Host+F1 key (it should show the Ubuntu console), and then then the Host+F7 combination (goes back to the Ubuntu installation window). Before you do that just make sure you have the Function keys set to act as normal function keys on OSX.

Copy/pasting the VM files is not the way to go. You need to use the correct export/import feature of VirtualBox. With the following instructions you will be able to transfer a VM accross several different phisical machines and it's also a good way to make backups. Export Open VirtualBox and enter into the File option to choice Export Appliance... You ...

I have exactly the same problem - I believe this is Ubuntu problem. I installed Windows 7 without problems. I also installed different distro of Linux (mint) but then it is very slow. Playing a bit I managed to install Ubuntu 14.10 - I believe that there is driver problem in Ubuntu (or in general Linux) not working properly with AMD driver in Yosemite.

Had a similar issue and found using this command worked. This was run on the VM not the host. sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms After that just restart the the virtual machine.
