It happens with few versions of mint. Try to directly download and install it via package manager. It may ask you to install some dependencies,which once installed will help you with the issue.Vbox 4.3 was giving me some errors,but 5.0 worked for me.

Linux is pretty adaptive; at boot time it tries to work out the machine it is in and will load the necessary drivers (as long as they are available!). Depending on the age of your linode you will either have a Xen or a KVM based virtual machine. This is subtly different from a VirtualBox build, but close enough. The final section of that tutorial and ...

LDOM is the Sun/Oracle hypervisor layer for SPARC machines, and so only works on SPARC hardware (v9 or higher). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oracle_VM_Server_for_SPARC You can't run this inside VirtualBox. VirtualBox doesn't emulate SPARC hardware, it's an Intel/AMD virtualisation technology. However you should be able to run Solaris Zones inside ...

I had this happen to me! Can you state if you're using a dongle, using something the computer provided, or Ethernet. You should be able to bridge the network if using any of the three. I would recommend Ethernet though.

First of all check what IP address you have been assigned by ifconfig -a. What VM client are you using? If it's Virtual Box you need to enable NAT and maybe make some changes if the "native operating system"

From Software Sources Enable all repository under Ubuntu Software (Canonical + community...), just type gksu software-properties-gtk then type the following command: sudo apt-get autoclean sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo dpkg --configure -a Install libvpx2 : sudo apt-get install libvpx2 Install virtualbox

I was able to reproduce using the steps you describe. Shared folders are a special functionality of the guest additions kernel modules, and may not be functionally equivalent to a local drive. I also tried to create a LUKS file-drive it inside of a loopback device (as that is how I have done LUKS file-drives in the past) and it can't even format the file, it ...

Keeping your Extension Pack up-to-date from CLI. I am assuming you always have the latest VBox version installed (Oracle provides repositories for Ubuntu, Debian, OpnenSUSE, SLES, Fedora and Oracle Linux). Save the version number of the latest version: vboxversion=$(wget -qO - http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/LATEST.TXT) wget -qO - keeps wget ...

To start the VM in headless mode with password, you need to create a file containing the password, suppose: /home/user/vmname-password Then you need to execute the two following commands: VBoxManage startvm "vmname" --type headless VBoxManage controlvm "vmname" addencpassword "vmname" "/home/user/vm-name-password" This is just an example. In real ...

You can install the Extension Pack via the GUI too: From the Menu select File/Preferences click on the icon I marked to select an extension file and proceed. Of course the CLI method has the big advantage that you get it much quicker and need not scroll through the EULA...

Per my setup, I had two systemd network unit files: one for the bridged adapter and one for the host-only adapter. I wanted the bridged adapter to have a dynamic address because the virtual machine is on a laptop that moves between networks, and I wanted the host-only adapter to have a static address so that I could access it, such as by ssh, without having ...

Alternatively, if you're running Debian with the non-free repositories, or Ubuntu with multiverse: sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ext-pack This will display the license if you haven't already approved it, and if you agree to the license, download the appropriate version of the extension pack and install it. The extension pack will then be upgraded along ...

Fist, you need to adhere to its license: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/VirtualBox_PUEL Description of the extension functionality: USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Host Controller, Host Webcam, VirtualBox RDP, PXE ROM, Disk Encryption. First we need to download the extension pack: wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.0.2/...

It definitely looks like it could have been a permissions or a network issue. But on my last note, I mentioned that: My Netowrk adapter, in the Settings on VBox, was set to NAT. As soon as I changed it to Bridged, then restarted the VM, it worked and didn't show the ?'s So this seemed to have fixed it. I haven't seen this since, so it had to have been ...

Nevermind. This did the trick: $ sudo apt-get autoclean Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done $ sudo updatedb $ locate virtualbox /usr/share/app-install/desktop/virtualbox.desktop /usr/share/app-install/icons/virtualbox.png

I have a feeling that this document will help you a lot (Sections 5.5 and 5.2 especially). I will try to summarize as best I can here. The best explaination that I have is that the numbers provided in memory.usage_in_bytes are not incredibly precise, but are intended to provide a general idea about the amount of memory something is using. memory.stat is ...

As always I found the solution just after asking. I actually knew this one, just forgot to do it. One has to be in the vboxusers group to get access to usb devices. It's as simple as running sudo gpasswd -a <user> vboxusers in a terminal. For Ubuntu I think it's sudo useradd vboxusers

On VirtualBox host select menu Devices -> Install Guest Additions CD Image... On Kali Linux guest cancel the autorun prompt and run the following command in Terminal: sh /media/cdrom0/autorun.sh (if the CD-ROM image is mounted elsewhere, replace cdrom0 with the mount point) It will build and install guest additions. Reboot Kali Linux guest machine.

There's a much simpler solution: enable the contrib repositories; e.g. for Debian 8, make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list contains something like deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib install virtualbox-guest-dkms, kernel headers, and, optionally, virtualbox-guest-x11 (for the graphical guest utilities): sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get ...

Follow these steps to install the Guest Additions on your Debian virtual machine: Login as root; Update your APT database with apt-get update; Install the latest security updates with This step WILL UPGRADE all your packages, so be wise about it, try the following steps first and they might be enough to work if not, then UPGRADE and Retry. ...

You can use vagrant boxes for that. A public catalog of boxes is available at: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/boxes/search An example of what you are looking for could be: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/antapos/boxes/ubuntu-trusty64-jdk8-maven

My low-tech storage benchmark: For writes: dd if=/dev/urandom of=some.file bs=1M count=whatever For reads: dd if=some.file of=/dev/null For things like shared folders, usage profile can be important, writing 1024x1MB files or one single 1GB file can yield very different results.

For Ubuntu 16.04LTS kernel module 4.4.0-22-generic I had to run sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms. In my case it was asking to disable secure UEFI. As a side note, the password requested for confirmation needs to be at least 8 characters long.
