As i can guess you did bridge mode for Internet but , your dhcp not providing IP address to your port or you have not enabled networking. so , it showing like this eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr e8:11:32:db:1b:a5 inet6 addr: fe80::ea11:32ff:fedb:1ba5/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX ...

Could you ensure that you have set up your virtual interface with bridged mode? If you are using a wireless connection, Vbox is not going to support IPv6 in bridged mode as you can see in Vbox manual: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#network_bridged Hope this helps.

This is fairly easy to do. First, you'll have to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions. Then, you'll have to set up Shared Folders. Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions Once you create the VM and install Windows, restart. Once you do that, go ahead and press the Ctrl+D. Make sure to press the right Ctrl, not the left. Alternatively, you can go up to the ...

I had a similar problem with DNS stop working. It happened using virtual box version 5.02r102096 running ubuntu server as guest on windows 10 64 bit as host. The problem occurred after I first activated port forwarding. Apparently until you activate port forwarding for the NAT it automatically enables port 53 forwarding. I enabled UDP and TCP ...

Based on your description, it sounds like you ran startx as root, which screwed with permissions on one or more files. You'll need to get to a text console by pressing a key combination such as: Ctrl + Alt + F1 (any F1-F6 key will work). Next, log in as yourself. Please check ownership on these two files: ls -l ~/.{ICE,X}authority My guess is that ...

I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 on Virtualbox 5.02. The same notification went away after I selected two "restricted drivers" from Virtualbox.

There are no problems with installing virtualbox on Ubuntu. It is available in the official repositories. The only bit which can be slightly tricky is getting the USB to work on your virtual machine. First you need to install the extensions pack for the version of virtualbox you have installed, which is an easy download from their website. You install it by ...

You can try disabling pointer integration by pressing CTRL-I and then just not clicking into the window. That will keep the mouse released from the window and it should work. If not, you can try plugging your PS3 controller in during bootup before it gets to the GUI.

This is the VirtualBox file and not your real drive, it won't format your real Linux.

If Deluge is creating the files then that is where you need to change the permissions. One solution is to use ACLs, another is to change the umask for the deluge service and add users to the service group.

You need to turn on hardware virtualization in bios to be able to install 64-bit OSes into VirtualBox.

I've had the same issue. Install the VirtualBox guest additions and reboot. That solved the problem for me with Ubuntu 15.04, and it should work just fine for 14.04. Also, 14.04 had some issues with GPU usage. If the above doesn't work, try upgrading to 14.10 or 15.04, they seemed to fix that problem.

I have managed to succeed in my efforts to get this undoubtedly exotic setup to work as I want it too. After a reinstall of Ubuntu, the problems with installed guest additions for the natively booted system disappeared. The only remaining problem was being unable to login into the virtual machine desktop with fglrx drivers installed. Although the kernel ...

Why would you "enter this line"? if you like to install virtualbox on 14.04, just install dkms and linux-header-generic and afterwards add the oracle repository and install from it, the kernel drivers will be installed during the process of installing virtualbox: Install prerequesits: sudo apt-get install dkms linux-headers-generic Add repository key: ...

This message is not specific to you. First of all this is not an error, this is a warning message made simply so that people are careful to not erase their disk if they don't want to.

Some workarounds are suggested in this VBox bug report.

I got into a mess using apt-cacher. Also, it only caches for one version. Rather setup trafficserver.apache.org and configure to be a general cache proxy for network traffic. You can set a rule for *.deb.

It looks like you have removed that virtualbox-dkms 4.3.10 package. It had problems and apport tries to report them. The easiest way to solve it is not to close this error window every time you boot, but uncheck "Send an error report" and press "Continue". After that apport should not pop up again with that error message.

A virtual machine does not see the hardware of the host machine directly. Your Ubuntu is not supposed to use the wireless interface. You do not need to install any wireless driers or connect to wireless networks from there. If your host machine is connected to internet, your geust machine will see a wired virtual interface if you've set up the Virtualbox ...

I just had the same problem, then realized that I didn't have the build-essential package installed. So the guest additions were only partially active. sudo apt-get install build-essential then Mount your guest additions and run them. Double check the install log to see if it found make and gcc and was successful. Then hopefully your error should be ...

The answer: Nothing solved this problem. It has magically disappeared on it's own for the most part, although there is an occasional graphics lag in the GUI. I assume installing GPU drivers might help with that, but I'm not sure. Long story short, if you leave well enough alone for a couple days, it might give up and quit bugging you altogether!

I'm not entirely sure about why Ubuntu would see one USB versus another other than perhaps file system type or limitations in the guest addition USB handlers. The solution I use is to mount the USB drive (or partition) as an OSX volume and then access it from Ubuntu via VirtualBox. In other words, a bit roundabout compared to mounting the USB drive directly ...

Confirmed workaround is: Put the VB Guest in either windowed or full screen mode Lock the Ubuntu screen - VB Host - via the menu Unlock Put the VB Guest in full screen mode or go to windowed mode then back to full screen mode. The launcher and top menu row then disappeared / behaved as wanted and expected.

I've read a couple of the answers here and on other threads. What did it for me was to enable virtualization in BIOS like most are saying. However, for some reason, to get it to work, I also had to delete my Windows 7 virtual machine and create a new one (still with the same settings).

Yes, but there are things you should be aware of. At least in the past, switching hardware for Windows has caused issues. That means you'd either always run Windows virtualized or always on metal. However, this is very rarely an issue with Ubuntu. I don't know what the situation is with Windows 10. So what you can do, is to have Windows on one drive and ...

I am not sure exactly what you are asking so this may not be responsive, but it is certainly possible to run Windows in a virtual machine on an Ubuntu computer, or Ubuntu in a virtual machine on a Windows computer, or Ubuntu in a virtual machine on an Ubuntu computer, etc, etc. You do not need to repartition to run virtual machines. Nor are separate disk ...

You need to install the Extensions for exact the same VirtualBox version. In VirtualBox press Help > About VirtualBox. On my machine with 14.04 this is 4.3.10 (Link to Extension) You can find old versions on VirtualBox Old Builds Page. 4.3.10 is hidden under the VirtualBox 4.3 older builds link

What does UUID mean? Is it used to identify and reference virtual machine? Yes, you are right.

The easiest way by far would be getting a hold of the .deb of Virtualbox 5.0. Simply go to Virtualbox's website and then get the 5.0.2. build for Ubuntu 14.04. If you're running a 64bit system, then grab the AMD64 deb. If you're using x32, then you will need to grab the i386 build. After that, simply go the destination that you saved the .deb file and ...
