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 ...

Because they are exactly the same hardware so it will show the same vendor id and same device id. The only difference between the 2 cards is the slot it is sitting in (probably the 1st part in your output). You can use dmidecode –t slot to match it with the output from lspci -nn to identify them each but you can not tell KVM that. Interesting question ...

There seems to have been an outside cause. The switched network was configured in a way that does not run the STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) and therefor disconnects ports that send STP packets. In the network config bridge_stp yes led to sending theses packets. However, it is unclear how the VM guests could still communicate with the outer Internet. Anyway, ...

To start with, /etc/network/interfaces defines a br0 interface but not an eth0 interface, so you would of course expect ifup eth0 to fail. You could try to ifdown br0; ifup br0. You would expect to see the default route on your system going out br0 and not eth0, given your configuration. eth0 should not have any ip address assigned. Note that bringing ...

Having the exact same need, I found the following : http://ronaldevers.nl/2012/10/14/adding-a-physical-disk-kvm-libvirt.html (the whole following text comes from the above source) It can’t be done with virt-manager. That one took me a while to figure out. As far as I can tell, virt-manager works with storage pools. You can make a disk into a storage ...

You need two host bridges. br0 connects to the internet, and br1 is a dummy bridge where all of the openwrt clients connect. The complete instructions for a dhcp wan interface are here: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/qemu/qemu I've not yet figured out how to use one static address where the host connects to the br1 bridge and gives openwrt full control ...

I'm managing both Qemu and Virtualbox on my Ubuntu 14.02 machine, and after installing Virtualbox libvirt-bin failed to autostart. So check if libvirt-bin is running: ps faux | grep libvirt-bin if you don't see it in ps output - start in manually, then run virt-manager: sudo service libvirt-bin start

Yes. VMWare Player for Linux exists and unless there's a bug specifically with 15.04, it'll run. Literally watched someone run VMWare Player today on Ubuntu. VirtualBox runs on Linux too. I'm assuming Ubuntu. VMWare Download Page: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/free Scroll to bottom and try installing VMware Player (PROTIP: if it's 32bit, crank the ...

Before you can put a larger image (512 GiB disk image) on a smaller block device (128 GiB SSD), you have to shrink the image first. You can do this by booting a virtual machine from installation media (for example, ubuntu-14.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso) together with your qcow2 file. Then use GParted to shrink the image to a size smaller than 128 GiB. Make no ...

I had the same exact error, and fixed it by dropping the 4095 GB to 3072 MB (3 GB). This is because it was 32-bit. I think the more than 3 GB is throwing it off.

This is a (pre-VT-X) limitation of the x86 design. I did some googling, and it seems the rub is the segment register. The wikipedia article on x86 virtualization says virtual machine software (without VT-X) has to find certain instructions and patch them (they will not behave the same in ring 3 as in ring 0), traps a lot of stuff, and fiddles about with ...

There is another simple way that we don't need to create a new NAT adapter On the host machine, please add the following iptables rules. This will forward packets through the host and on to the Internet: sudo iptables -A FORWARD -o eth0 -i vboxnet0 -s 192.168.56.0/24 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT sudo iptables -A FORWARD -m conntrack --ctstate ...
