Thread: Virtualbox OSE Problem (11.1)

  1. #1

    Default Virtualbox OSE Problem (11.1)

    Installed from yast, now when I click the link nothing happens (literally). How can I test the problem?

    By the way I'm on x86_64 11.1.

    same problem here. Vbox OSE won't launch after installation. More importantly the non-OSE version, which worked fine under 11.0, won't install at all because of missing dependencies.

    I need virtualbox with usb support. So I guess I scrap 11.1 and go back to 11.0

    Virtualbox requires you to be a member of the vboxusers group. Howver, the OSE version crashes on startup. The non-oss version won't install because of a dependency issue (it wants python-2.5, which will not install on openSUSE 11.1). However, I installed the non-oss version once with the rpm -Uvh -nodeps command. It ran fine once, however, now it refuses to build the kernel module. So no VirtualBox for me.

    I don't know about the OSE version, but the Sun version I downloaded
    yesterday for the 11.0 i386 (32 bit) refused to install because of a
    libpython dependency. Went back to the VB web site tonight and they had
    added a new 11.1 version that wasn't there earlier. Got that and all was
    well.

    Thanks Will. The new Vbox download was what I needed.

    Surprised (and pleased) that Sun could offer a fixed version almost immediately upon release of 11.1.

    FWIW, I'm right now installing an OS with Vbox OSE, it installed fine and ran well after adding the user to vboxusers group and rebooting. Also to be able to use the cd/dvd, the user must be a member of disk group.

    Downloaded the latest rpm from the VirtualBox site on February 1, 2009.

    After installing on OpenSuse 11.1 and editing the VirtualBox Group, the VirtualBox icon just bounces on the screen, then goes away.

    Could someone please post a set of diagnostic steps to figure out the problem?

    Run it frm the command line and see what error(s) appear.

    Also having problems with Virtualbox.

    I first tried the ose version (btw crashes yast2 when selecting that package from gui so had to use zypper)


    no matter if i run it from the apps menu or via terminal it's starts to process the job and just does nothing not even any output.

    the same can be said from apps menu no gui nothing.

    this behavior is also unchanged with the binary version 2.1.2 from the VB website.

    i uninstalled all i could find related to VB and reinstalled and did this process with both version still no responce.

    I am using 11.1 with a gnome display (i don't like kde)

    I really need to get this up and running so I can silence my instructors gripes about me not having XP installed so i can follow along in class (being as i refuse to use the slower then paint drying school systems)

    So any help on this would be appreciated I am on x86_32 bit hardware
