PostPosted: Tue 01 Dec 2009, 14:52    Post subject: Mounting the VirtualBox host file system ...  

How do I get the VirtualBox host file system to automatically mount at startup? Into which startup file do I place the mounting instructions?

[Later...Perusal of the Internet resulted in finding a suggestion to place the mount command in the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file. Guess what! It works!]

Hi all!

Using Puppy 4.3.1 I am trying to install Virtual Box the way Gray descibes.

After installing the menulink is there, but it's not working. When starting from a terminal the reply is:

VirtualBox: supR3HardenedMainGetTrustedMain: dlopen ("opt/VirtalBox/VirtualBox.so",) failed: libGLU.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I read that I should change the rights to /opt/VirtualBox and so I did. But to no avail and I cannot find another solution online.

Does any of you have an idea?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Looks like the latest version of Vbox has a new dependency - OpenGL. Didn't spot that as I already have the nvidia drivers (& hence OpenGL) already installed. If you have an nvidia graphics card install the nvidia drivers. Alternatively install the following pet for the mesa GL libs.

gray,
I am very grateful for your work on the VirtualBox pet. I'm using Puppy as the host machine, and created a DOS virtual with it. I was able to setup DOS 6.22, along with a DOS application program I wanted to run. Everything works including the application program until I decide to use the serial port for the application program which is required for it to do its job. That's when the virtual machine won't start unless I disable the comm port in the VirtualBox settings. In searching the various sites, seems like I'm not the only one with serial port issues on VirtualBox (although others with problems are usually USB/Serial adapters). I'm hoping you might have some ideas; here's where I'm at:

Checking that the port is OK from the Puppy side:
Code:
dmesg | grep ttyS0
serial8250: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3F8 (irq=4) is a 16550A
00:09: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3F8 (irq=4) is a 16550A


Settings for VirtualBox Serial Port:
Code:
Enabled
Com1
HostDevice
/dev/ttyS0


When I try to start the DOS virtual machine, i get
Code:
Failed to open host device
/dev/ttyS0 (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
Unknown errorcreating VM(VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).


Under the error code details:
Code:
Result Code:NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Console
Interface: |Console{  lot of numbers here which I haven't typed in }


It may have had no impact in Puppy's single user setup, but based on some posts I read I even tried adding a group named vboxusers, and then manually edited the file /etc/group to add the user root in the line that was appended to the end of the file after I'd added the group. The line looked like:
Code:
vboxusers:x:1001:root

I also executed the command
Code:
chmod a+rw /dev/vboxdrv


I rebooted, tried starting the DOS virtual machine again, but got the same error. Any ideas?

Both of the PETs for version 3.1.0 are available, but the link to the compressed guest additions ISO returns a 404 error, as does trying to get at it by navigating in from puppylinux.ca and .asia. Sad

@gray: Why don't you just link to the ISOs here, buried in the VirtualBox site? I'd think that's easier than compressing 'em and hosting them yourself.

These VirtualBox PETs you package up so nicely are wonderful, by the way. Thanks for the time spent!

I think I've figured out the serial port issue when using VirtualBox serial ports on a Puppy host. I'll confirm it after I test the actual application, but the VirtualBox client I have running DOS/WFW will now start up when I enable the serial port. After much unneccessary reading about pipes, dev/ttyS0, mkfifo, and socat it turned out all I needed was one command issued BEFORE the VirtualBox application is started (not just the client in VirtualBox). I've appended the following line to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local to ensure it is executed on bootup.

Code:
setserial /dev/ttyS0

The serial port does indeed function with that change. I've documented the entire process to setup a DOS/WFW client at

When in doubt with Puppy Linux sites, use "p u p p y" and "l i n u x" as your username and password, minus the quotes and the spaces.

Additionally, a couple of the previously posted links seem to be dead, so just go to http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP/ and select the most recent version listed there (which I think would be 3.1.4).

thanks for the password!
when i try to start the virtual box i receive an error message

Code:
RTR3Init failed with rc=-1912 (rc=-1912)

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing

'/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup'

may correct this. Make sure that you do not mix the OSE version and the PUEL version of VirtualBox.


what i have to do?? i'm using lucid puppy
someone could help me please? ;(
