as my title says, I'm trying to install Ubuntu via Virtual Box. I used the following tutorial http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/virtualbox
to setup virtual box. However, when starting the machine, I got a nice black screen with nothing at all ever appearing.
I'm aware this may not be a Ubuntu related problem, but I have simply no clue on how to solve this problem.
I run 11.10 64 bit on HP-EliteBook (I5 6gig ram).
There are especially two hardware parts which are not recognized by Ubuntu but I want to pass them on to the Win 7 which I run in virtual env via Virtual box (got from Oracle site).
First is Acer Iconia A500 Tab. There are no drivers for Ubuntu (This is NOT a complain on Ubuntu drivers). But I want to be able to communicate to it.
Hi there. It is my second post ever here in the forum. I run Windows 7. I installed Oracle Virtual Box, downloaded and installed Ubuntu as a Guest OS and now I am trying to work with it. If you go to Oracle VM Virtual Box Manager, click on Settings, highlight General and click on Advanced tab you can see two combo boxes: (1) Shared Clipboardand (2) Drag and Drop..
I've been using windows for years and thought I'd give Linux a try. As listed in the title, I'm trying to run Ubuntu through Oracle's Virtual box. When I go to the Install for Ubuntu, I get a black screen saying that the kernel version I am currently using is i686 rather than the x86-64 CPU....where do I go from here?
I have ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed in as a VM in Oracle virtual box. I am able to browse from firefox but trying to connect from command prompt to update is failing. I also tried to change software sources but even then it is erroring out. The error is "Please check your Internet Connection".
I need to use Oracle developer tools on my notebook that is running ubuntu 11.10.
Because Oracle tools are not installable under ubuntu without any problems theres is an idea to run Oracle Linux under some virtual partition under ubuntu.
