Default Help with VirtualBox??????

Hi All,

Just loaded VirtualBox on my antique system - very pleasantly surprised
how easily eveything (almost!) seems to have gone.... must be a problem
waiting to bite me!

Anyway, reason for going down this path is to be able to use Photbook
software which runs on everything - so long as it's called Winderz!
Having got it running, I now need to be able to move photos from my
Fedora 12 external USB harddrive & there comes Problemo Uno - my virtual
machine can't see any USB ports. During installation it kept bubling on
aabout how I'd got USBFS set up & should change it, but no idea how.

So, question to you smart folks out there.... HOW do I change the USB
file system to something it might like? Or is there a different way to
share data between the Fedora host & the XP guest machines?????

As ever, many thanks fr all the time you spend helping me out of my "Tar
Baby" situation(s)!

Greetings

Dave

The version of VirtualBox from the fedora repos does not include USB
access.

1) Uninstall VirtualBox-OSE.
2) Then copy the repo from here
http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/virtualbox.repo
to yum.repos.d
3) yum install VirtualBox-3.2

(see http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads)

I've used VirtualBox-OSE (from rpmfusion) and VirtualBox (from the repo
above) to run the liveCD of Fedora 14 Beta, but it didn't boot in any of
the two versions of virtualbox. The same happended with the liveCD of
Fedora 14 Alfa, it didn't boot.

Does it happen to you? Any ideas?

Regards,
Germán.

Hi German,

Nope, once I removed the Fedora repo version & installed the one from
virtualbox.org everything seems fine. Had to make sure I didn't try to
use the USB drive in bothe the vm WinXP and the Fedora host machine, and
to click on the USB device in the Devices tag of the VM, but other than
that, no problems. BUT....I am still using F12.

Cheers

Dave

Many thanks Dave for your reply. I'm using virtualbox in my host Fedora
13 amd athlon 64 and 2.6.34.7-56.fc13.x86_64.

More ideas? Did it happen to someone else that used virtualbox to run
Fedora 14 Alfa or Beta?

Regards,
Germán.

No, it's not possible to run F14 Alpha or Beta inside Vbox, but you can use VMWare Player if you want to use it inside a VM I made two screencasts (One for BETA and one for ALPHA) using VMWare Player.
