I discovered here that the standard guest additions install includes a built-in setup function, so there's no need to reinstall: /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup This gave me the error about missing kernel sources, so as brendan's answer, yum install kernel-devel, and then that setup command works, and everything seems to be back to normal again!

If you run the /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run then you'll have some startup scripts in /etc/init.d that doesn't come with Debian default package. You should get rid of these: ls /etc/*/*vbox* (remove all rcX.d and init.d files with vbox in the filename). Then install only the Debian package virtualbox-guest-dkms. For example, using systemctl command, ...

A current version of GNU parted (not GParted) can expand contract or move the Logical Volumes within theIR Volume Group IN almost any lvm2 or Raid partition.It can manipulate them as their native file types including most that are endorsed by VirtualBox GNU parted cannot format into LVM2 anymore however.

If it was me, and I had to either sort through the many and varied issues of fooling a virtual SQL server image which is running on and virtual networking via virtualbox into thinking that its own host laptop was the recipient of outside connectivity rather than the supplier while also running a tunneling virtualLAN connection between the Host and the VM ...

Firstly expand the advanced options and change promiscuous mode to allow all so you will be able to pass the traffic. Secondly you will need to set up manually IP address, subnet and the gateway for each machine. In your Kali machine you can do it by opening terminal console: vim /etc/network/interfaces and in your XP machine go to your local area ...

I think you see different attributes: the executable one x, probably now you have -rwxrw-r--. To be sure try from your guest system ls -l yourfile and you will see which attribute your file is seen. If it is a problem of executable attribute set (x) with chmod u-x you can fix the problem. Look at the answer of Brian to fix the problem with that reading ...

This happens to me all the time, usually when I pscp a text file generated on Windows over to my Linux server. Hastur is right, in the comments, and Joe Sewell in his answer, too: it's just the 'executable' permissions flag is set. My solution is: chmod u-x,go+r filename This makes it not-executable for my user, and readable for 'group' and for 'others'. ...

If you've got LS_COLORS set up with default values (or at least the defaults I've seen in RHEL), the green color of the filename doesn't mean it's binary, only that one or more executable bits are set. ls -l should give you the information you need to confirm this. Remember that, in Linux, shell scripts are text files that must be executable in order to work ...

I had similar problem: but in my case the process /usr/bin/VBoxClient --clipboard were closing multiple times per session. To deal with that I created bash program: #! /bin/bash ps aux | grep '/usr/bin/VBoxClient --clipboard' | grep -v grep || /usr/bin/VBoxClient --clipboard I just run it every time, I lost ability to use clipboard.

I finally found the solution and it is somewhat strange. as suggested by Hennes in comment the option "Secure Virtual Machine Mode" has to be worked out. The real catch here was I had to disable that option. With secure virtual machine mode, this bios allows only one CPU to be allocated for virtual machine. I could allocate more CPU after disabling the ...

First of all do a backup of your image disk: it's always wise and safe. Then you can use VBoxManage modifyhd with this syntax VBoxManage modifyhd <absolute path to file> --resize <size in MB> In your case I think the commandline should be VBoxManage modifyhd <absolute path with the name and extension> --resize 10240 Reference : The ...

Shorter explanation: If the network requires a username and password to connect and you are using “bridged” networking in the guest OS, there is no way you will ever be able to connect to that network without actually entering the username and password again in the guest OS. Longer explanation: You state this; bold emphasis is mine: The only ...

It's a little hard to know exactly what VirtualBox did (especially without the details of how you uninstalled it), but since you say that the older kernel is working fine, I think the following is highly likely to be a successful approach to repair: Boot into older kernel Make sure that the newest kernel is not installed. (yum remove if necessary.) Now, ...

After extensive research, seems this issue has no straightforward solution. However, forums.virtualbox.org member loukingjr suggested this cleaver workaround: I recommend installing ssh server, then connecting to the VM with the SSH client of your choice, e.g. PuTTY - this offers not only easy cut&paste, but also a resizable text console and other ...

You don't need to install virtualbox-dkms. You do need to install dkms package, which is a part of standard Debian repository. I normally install it before installing VirtualBox, but the order might not matter: $ sudo aptitude install dkms $ sudo aptitude install virtualbox-4.3 During kernel updates you will see that DKMS updates VirtualBox modules ...

You have likely not configured your network in Virtualbox correctly. Please refer to section 6.2: https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html By default, Virtualbox puts adapters in NAT mode. This works for connecting the virtual machine to the internet, but not much else. This is because Virtualbox creates an additional NAT on your machine, and puts the ...

It is not quite clear whether your USB external drive is USB 2.0 or USB 3.0. It seems that USB 3.0 is still not supported in VirtualBox. I have found a workaround for this issue. I am connecting my USB 3.0 external hard drive via an USB 2.0 extension cable to the laptop's USB 3.0 port. At least it works for me. I have tested it on Windows 8, Windows Sever ...

That processor specifically supports AMD-V according to its specs, but your output from Coreinfo above shows that it does not. Since you've already checked the virtualization options in your BIOS, try flashing your BIOS to a newer version. I checked ASUS's web site and it says that motherboard only supports the FX-8120 for BIOS revision 0801 or later. ...

Virtualbox actually supports eight virtual network interfaces per guest. The first four can be configured through the GUI. To configure all of them, you would have to use the command-line VboxManage utility modifyvm option. The specific commands are listed in section 8.8.2 of the manual, for example: VBoxManage modifyvm vm-name --nic5 hostonly VBoxManage ...

The file you want to run is VBoxLinuxAdditions.run , the files named runasroot.sh and autorun.sh will return that error even if you do change the attributes.

If not you can type into a ...

I could trace bad throughput (even from the VirtualBox host to its own guest) to my switch. Try plugging into another switch if you can - or even unplug for testing.

Had to search a bit on how to run this command. Navigate to folder having your-filename.vdi e.g:(cd /Users/binoy/VirtualBox\ VMs/) Then run the command to increase the space to 25 gb. VBoxManage modifyhd filename.vdi --resize 25000 You would now have to attach the additional space using resize2fs or Gparted.

I have a Virtualbox (Windows 8 guest on a Windows 8 host) with NAT networking set up. I would like to set up the guest system to emit Growl messages that would be picked up by a service on the host. Pretty easy if you setup an additional “host-only adapter” on the guest OS. I go into detail on how to do that in Mac OS X in this answer, but the same ...

There were two things that were needed: (1) Virtualbox Preferences and (2) Guest Additions for the specific VM. 1) In the top toolbar in OSX, go to VirtualBox -> Preferences -> Display and change your max resolution size.

Here's what I did. First, I installed SAMBA on the Linux box and shared the drives I wanted to use. (This is a whole nother topic, but you can find plenty of descriptions on how to do it.)

If you can't change the folder in the program's settings , then it's probably nothing you can do, short of creating iSCSI target on your Linux PC (file target probably, to keep your partitions intact) and using iSCSI initiator on your Windows VM to connect to it (MS iSCSI initiator, StarWind iSCSI Initiator). Alternatively, one can hex-edit program and ...
