I am using VirtualBox on a Ubuntu 10.04 64bit host. I would like to install a Fedora 64bit guest.
When I try to run the 64bit live cd, it says "Automatic boot in 10 seconds..." after which I get a blue background with no menu options. I am familiar with Ubuntu but not Fedora.
I have been able to install a Fedora 32 bit system just fine.
Any suggestions? I am trying to run an rpm that won't run in Ubuntu even using alien.
update I tried to install from the full distribution (non-live) DVD image, and the installation stopped with the error
this kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU
However, the results of
uname -a indicate that my host is x86-64:
user@desktop:~$ uname -a Linux user-desktop 2.6.32-26-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 24 10:14:11 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Have I configured VirtualBox incorrectly?
