  1. I downloaded and installed the latest version of Virtual Box in Windows 10 as host. Tried to run a 64 bit Linux Distro as guest, it would not work. In VB all of the listed distro's and Windows are 32 bit. What gives My windows 10 and all of my Linux Distros are 64 Bit and so is my CPU. This only happens when using Windows as the host using Virtual Box. It works fine in Linux. Mel
  2. I mentioned this in the xorg thread but can't figure out why I can't access my Virtual Box VM's as a regular user. My VM files are stored on an external HDD. User ichase has read write access to this external HDD, but yet I get the following error when trying to start one. Failed to open virtual machine located in /mnt/Clones/VMs/Win7_Pro/Win7_Pro.vbox. Runtime error opening '/mnt/Clones/VMs/Win7_Pro/Win7_Pro.vbox' for reading: -38(Access denied.). /build/virtualbox/src/VirtualBox-4.3.14/src/VBox/Main/src-server/MachineImpl.cpp[472] (nsresult Machine::initFromSettings(VirtualBox*, const com::Utf8Str&, const com::Guid*)). Under details I get: Result Code: [font='Courier New,courier']NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)[/font] Component: Machine Interface: IMachine {480cf695-2d8d-4256-9c7c-cce4184fa048} Callee: IVirtualBox {fafa4e17-1ee2-4905-a10e-fe7c18bf5554} Edit, Wanted to mention HOW I set permissions to the external HDD # chgrp storage /mnt/Clones # chmod 777 /mnt/Clones # gpasswd -a user_name storage Also, as mentioned in the other xorg thread, I now can't get virtual box to open to where I can access my VMs as root. I just get a box with a white screen and the command line just states: Extension: 130 (MIT-SHM) Minor opcode: 5 (X_ShmCreatePixmap) Resource id: 0x82 Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea) Resource id: 0x1e0000e Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9 I have been running VBox as root for a while now since moving my VMs to an external HDD and just rolled with it. But now since I updated xorg, I get the above errors (there are plenty but pretty much stating the same thing) when I run VBox as root from the terminal. As mentioned above, I don't have this issue when running VBox from menu as user. I can access "ONE" VM that is installed on the actual host SSD drive.
  3. First of all, I am on the fense whether this post belongs in the Windows forums or the Linux forums. The host for my Windows XP VM is Arch Linux. I have this VM for work purposes. Before setting it up, I would have to re-boot into my Windows 7 partition. I have everything set up for this VM to be actually more optimal than my company laptop. Not to mention I don't have to reboot into Win 7 anymore (Actually, can't see me booting into this anytime soon ) Guest Additions are properly set up. I have access to my SAMBA storage configured. I even created a folder in my host /home directory ( VM_Storage) and have it properly mapped as a network Drive (H:/ drive) This is great considering I made the VM only 20 GB. The only thing I can't figure out is how to see my network printer. I know what you are thinking. Here we go again with Ian trying to print from Linux ) but technically I am not trying to print from Linux, I am trying to print from the WinXP Pro Guest VM. First thing I did was to see if Windows would detect my printer on the network. It did not. So I tried utilizing the default gateway of my guest OS using port 631 That gave me an error stating it could not find the printer and that the printer may not be active. The printer IS active and I confirmed that on my wife's netbook running Win7. I then tried using the IP of the Server Same thing. As I am sitting here typing this, I wonder if using HTTPS vice HTTP might do the trick. I had to use HTTPS to connect to my CUPS web interface via port 631. Hmmmmmmm
