This is not the answer you want as I am not a programmer but I think it my be worth a try doing this in two hits; 1) use a minimal install cd or usb with unetbootin and then install your packages with Apt on CD?

I think your change to /etc/init.d/virtualbox does not work because that is not sourced by systemd. Try this. Create a directory named `/etc/systemd/service/vboxweb.service.d In it, create a file named custom-host.conf. The contents of the file would be: [Service] Environment=VBOXWEB_HOST=0.0.0.0 Then: systemctl daemon-reload systemctl restart ...

You can disable the use of PredictableNetwork and return to guessing the order of eth adapters by using ln -s /dev/null /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-setup-link.rules This page details how and why these names are used https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/PredictableNetworkInterfaceNames/

There is a guest additions package, but this only enabled some of the features for me. The most reliable way is probably to use the built-in installer that comes with VirtualBox. Tested on VirtualBox 5.0.24: (It might be good to first sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade and restart if needed.) Power on virtual machine Click "Devices" on the VirtualBox ...

This is both an answer and a question. Answer Create a dir where you're going to mount this, like mkdir docs Install Guest Additions into the guest Ubuntu machine as others have posted here.

You need install the virtualbox guest additions: In the VM's menu: click "Devices" -> "Insert Guest Additions CD Image" (The guest additions cd image will be mount in your guest's cdrom" Run .{path_to_your_CDROM_mount_in_the_GUEST}/VboxLinuxAddition.run Restart your VM Now, with the correct driver installed and loaded: "You have to select "Auto-resize ...

You have to select "Auto-resize guest display" on "View" menu. If this doesn't work, then you have done something wrong at Guest Additions installation.

In case somebody bumps to this in the future. It may be that the required packages are not among dependencies. In my case, running through the terminal throws: WARNING: The character device /dev/vboxdrv does not exist. . Installing virtualbox-dkms solved my problem. sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

There might be settings that are not configured properly. In the virtual box, go to the settings, then to the serial ports option. You can see 4 ports , all with user defined options. In the dropdown where userdefined is displayed select the different ports(COM1,COM2,COM3,COM4) for all the 4 ports and apply. Then try starting the machine again. The message ...

It depends on how you have set up networking in Virtualbox between the host and the guest. The two most common set-ups are NAT or Bridged. In the NAT (Network Address Translation) case you will have to set up port forwarding to access the guest from your host. AFAIK, this is the default for Virtualbox and you will likely be using that if you have not ...

If you want the OS Guest to be on the 10.0.1.x network, you'll need to set your Virtualbox network setting to "Bridged Adapter". Shutdown the Guest to change this setting. Cheers, Al

You can add th VirtualBox repositorys to your sources list. This eases installation as you only need to run apt-get to install it. This would also insure that your VirtualBox is always up to date. Go to your sources list located at /etc/apt/sources.list sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list Go down to the bottom and add the following line: deb http://...

Don't use the .tar. Instead, download the .deb here: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.0.22/virtualbox-5.0_5.0.22-108108~Ubuntu~trusty_amd64.deb. Then run: sudo dpkg -i virtualbox*.deb

Only your host OS, Windows 10, requires EFI. You need to disable EFI on the VM. Afterwards treat the virtual machine as if EFI didn't exist, and read How to install Ubuntu on VirtualBox?.

The easiest thing to do would be to install the version of Virtualbox that is included in the Ubuntu software repositories. In general, this is preferred over installing a downloaded version (unless you need special features that the version in the software repos doesn't offer). The version of Virtualbox in the Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) repos is 5.0.18-1. First,...

Yes, it is perfectly safe. If your computer isn't overheating in Windows, it won't overheat while running Vbox in Windows. (Assuming you've got a good CPU cooler). If you are using the stock cooler, I highly recommend you go to your local Microcenter and pick up a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. When you say the software "burnt your motherboard", did you ...

Unfortunately using VMware vCenter Converter is applicable just for server administrators.

No Solidworks love for Ubuntu (or for linux, in general). Maybe try Freecad or BRL-CAD, but don't expect commercial-grade results. Siemens NX runs in some linuxes.

For a novice it might be the most efficient to just download a preconfigured VB-Image. In any case, it is a definite time-saver. Check http://www.osboxes.org/ubuntu/ p.s. Don't forget to install virtualbox extension pack on the host and guest-additions inside of the guest.

It is asking where your Ubuntu ISO is. If you have not downloaded it: 32-bit Ubuntu 16.04: http://releases.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-16.04-desktop-i386.iso 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04: http://releases.ubuntu.com/16.04/ubuntu-16.04-desktop-amd64.iso Then select the file. :)

Add the user that runs the virtualmachines, your login account for example, to the vboxusers group: sudo usermod -aG vboxusers USERACCOUNT Then make sure to give the right ownership to the www dir: sudo chown -R www-data:vboxusers /var/www/html/phpvirtualbox Please note that if you have different locations you'd have to change it.

It turns out that the solution to the networking problem is a separate module that must be signed to allow this specific function.

You need to do two things: Add your username to the vboxusers group. One way to do this is by executing sudo gpasswd -a your_username vboxusers. Download and install the VirtualBox 5.0.20 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack from here. This will enable full USB support for your vm's. Double-click on the pack and virtualbox will start and install it.

I think I've found a solution. The problem doesn't happen anymore (tested for 2 days so far). I removed the openbox desktop environment sudo apt-get purge openbox obconf obmenu Also removed Cairo. I'm not sure which one solved the problem, but definitely not needing them anymore. How to remove desktop environments?

I have encountered this. You can move the file without errors if you use the VirtualBox Virtual Media Manager. It's found under the File menu.

You will get an "are you sure" popup if the file is associated with a VM, that's ...

You can certainly disable apache and MySQL services on boot. They won't make a huge difference, but unless you are using them, they don't necessarily need to be running. Also, disabling virtualbox should not cause any errors.

Same symptoms as The Emperor of the Republic when installing Ubuntu 16.04 LTS desktop to vm on Virtual Box 5.0.20. Changing to 2 processors and 48MB Video memory and disabling Nested Paging under System / Acceleration permitted installation, but had similar screen on reboot. Booted into grub recovery mode took care of it.

VirtualBox commands for Ubuntu are actually very similar to those from Windows or the Mac OS. The good news is the vboxmanage command is installed into the path on Ubuntu systems so there is no need to go to specific folders to find it. The commands would then be as follows from a terminal: Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal. And these commands can be ...

If you can't ping ipv6.google.com then your computer's internet connection probably doesn't support IPv6. If you go to http://ipv6test.google.com/, that web page will tell you if you have IPv6. If you just want your virtual machines to be able to access web sites and such with IPv6, then that should be automatic if your computer has IPv6 connectivity. If ...

Here are the manual steps to install VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules inside the VM: Download the ISO file, e.g. wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.0.16/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.0.16.iso -P /tmp Mount the ISO file: sudo mount -o loop /tmp/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.0.16.iso /mnt Run installer (add -x after sh to debug): sudo sh /mnt/...

The same may happen in VirtualBox 5. The vboxdrv script is now called vboxadd (I guess) and the logic is as follow: KERN_VER=`uname -r` KERN_DIR="/lib/modules/$KERN_VER/build" if [ -d "$KERN_DIR" ]; then KERN_REL=`make -sC $KERN_DIR --no-print-directory kernelrelease 2>/dev/null || true` if [ -z "$KERN_REL" -o "x$KERN_REL" = "x$KERN_VER" ]; then ...

Watch out for the "Execution Cap" setting under the processor setting for the virtual machine. I stumbled upon a user having it set to 1% when it normally should be at 100%. You can find it under 'System'->'Processor'->'Execution Cap'. It's a slider. Sorry for my ugly theme.

I ran into the same problem, and I didn't want to use the out-of-date guest additions from the repos. This is what I did to get the script to run: sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r` dkms sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run I found the first line in this answer.

You can attach the ISO image to the virtual box and the upgrade dialog should pop up. Also you can use the upgrade via Internet (upgrade manager) from within the Virtual Box.
