Could someone please explain to me how to create a linux guest on OS X host? When I create a VM (Ununtu) after start up it just gives some error messages and leave the VM.

Thanks Artimess

would probably help to post the error messages – Jorge Israel Peña Aug 26 '10 at 20:07
definitely. screenshot would be best (Command+Shift+4 then Space bar when focused on the VM's window) – ford Aug 26 '10 at 20:11
need more info if you want a solution... – Robert S Ciaccio Sep 21 '10 at 15:12

Did you download an ISO to install? Typically download a CD-ROM image of the distro you want, then you mount the CD via the Storage tab, and finally boot the VM. Then just install it.

The installation goes fine, but when I run VM VirtalBox exits! – artimess Aug 26 '10 at 20:12
Did you try restarting it? – digitxp Aug 26 '10 at 22:35
