Thread: Need help w/ vbox install

  1. #1

    Default Need help w/ vbox install

    Read some tips but still can't get it working.
    I am running suse 12.2 w/ KDE. 3.4.6-2.10-default

    Maybe there is a conflict .... I have installed the following:
    rpm -qa | grep -i virtualbox
    VirtualBox-4.2-4.2.0_80737_openSUSE114-1.i586
    virtualbox-guest-x11-4.1.22-1.6.1.i586
    virtualbox-guest-kmp-default-4.1.22_k3.4.6_2.10-1.6.1.i586
    virtualbox-qt-4.1.22-1.6.1.i586
    virtualbox-guest-tools-4.1.22-1.6.1.i586
    virtualbox-host-kmp-default-4.1.22_k3.4.6_2.10-1.6.1.i586
    virtualbox-4.1.22-1.6.1.i586

    I am trying to install ibm os/2 in VBox.
    When I try to start it I get:
    ==============
    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine eCS 2.1.

    Unable to load R3 module /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxDD.so (VBoxDD): /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxDD.so: undefined symbol: VDAsyncDiscardRanges (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).

    Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    Component: Console
    Interface: IConsole {db7ab4ca-2a3f-4183-9243-c1208da92392}
    =============
    Running service vboxdrv setup gives me the following:

    Stopping VirtualBox kernel modules done
    Uninstalling old VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules done
    Removing old VirtualBox pci kernel module done
    Removing old VirtualBox netadp kernel module done

    Trying to register the VirtualBox kernel modules using DKMS failed <-------
    (Failed, trying without DKMS)
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel modules done
    Starting VirtualBox kernel modules

    What do I have to do to get this up and running?

    Thanks, jon

    You have too much stuff installed. You installed both Oracle and OSU versions:

    virtualbox-4.1.22-1.6.1.i586

    This is all you need (for the Oracle version):

    Code:
    # rpm -qa | grep -i virtualbox
    VirtualBox-4.2-4.2.0_80737_openSUSE114-1.x86_64
    Remove either all the packages in red or the package in blue.

    Since you are running the i586 version you only need the following
    package installed:

    --------------------------------------------------
    > VirtualBox-4.2-4.2.0_80737_openSUSE114-1.i586


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Yes, sorry. I posted the output of this command from a 64bit system.

    OK. Then of course you will want to install the 64bit version. You will
    also need to install the "Extension Pack" which you can get from here:

    If you followed the method described in post #2, it gets installed automatically. Further you can just run VBoxExtensionPack whenever you need to update the Extension Pack (so that it matches VirtualBox version, otherwise USB support won't work).

    Notice that VBoxExtensionPack works with both Puel and OSU versions.

    Thanks all. Removing the extra packages allows VBox to start.
    Unfortunately I now find out that my bios circa 2002 w/ Celeron 2.4 does not allow hw accel and I need that for os/2.

    Anyone know of another linux VM product that will work for os/2 guest w/o special bios requirements?

    Otherwise I might have to bite the bullet and move out of the world of scsi & 32 bit processing.

    Thanks, Jon

    Celeron is the problem.

    I'm not aware of special bios requirements for OS/2. We used it before Celeron and even Pentium were born. AFAIK all VM products (including VirtualBox, VMware and Xen) with the exception of KVM do both full-(hardware) and paravirtualization. Also notice that hardware virtualization is disable by default in VirtualBox. I'm surprised that you can not use OS/2 guests... but I never tried.

    BTW, this thread actually belongs in the virtualization subforum.
