A Conservative Approach

Today, 09:10 AM

Posted by raymac46 in Bruno's All Things Linux
I have decided to take a conservative approach with VirtualBox installs this year. I really need only one instance of it anyway - to have a Linux O/S available in Windows 10 on my main desktop.
I am running 4 different Linux distros - Mint, Arch, MX-17 and Debian Sid - on the rails on 4 different machines so I have plenty of variety. Stabillity too, as the rolling releases are excellent this way.
I have had trouble with them in VirtualBox - what with all the kernel updates and VBox updates something will break sooner or later (usually the Guest Additions.) Yesterday my Debian Testing VBox install lost its full screen capability and I didn't want to spend hours debugging it. Rebuilding the Guest Additions didn't work. I think there was something wrong with the virtualbox-guest-X11 package but not sure. In this case the usual VBox answer is big hammer - nuke and repave.
So in my lone remaining VBox setup I have gone back to good old Ubuntu 17.10 - Guest Additions work out of the box, there are updates but not too many to the kernel, and Ubuntu is now using GNOME 3 again (which suits me fine.) Its a copout I guess. But so far it works.
