Can't install latest SolydX on Virtualbox

Postby nmambre » 24 Sep 2018 21:56

Hi all,

After a long time, I'm back to SolydX.
I wanted to test in Virtualbox before installing to disk, but found a problem where the installer just shows the splash screen and then nothing happens. Any way to start the installer to see any error message? Or someone already know how to fix this?
Latest Virtualbox 5.2.18 on Win10.

Thx,
Nelson

I just did a VM install 2 weeks ago on a Solydx host and it worked without problems - just the splash screen hangs a moment longer bevor it disappears.
Which ISO did you use? Try the nightly at https://downloads.solydxk.com/nightly/.

You can always start the installer from the terminal:

Code: Select all

live-installer -n
The -n prevents the splash to show.

Don't forget to post back any relevant output.

That looks exactly how it should be.

I cannot reproduce this issue. So, I've adapted the Live Installer's source a bit and catch an exception a line earlier than it did.

Could you start a live session, open a terminal and run these commands:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install live-installer-3
live-installer-3 -n
Does it open the main window now and if it does, is the language list filled and is there a language selected by default?

I'm sorry, but I cannot reproduce this error either.
I don't understand what is causing your issues but I have no idea how to solve it.

I wanted a sandbox environment to test some stuff, that's why I want to use a VM.
But you're saying it install correctly on Virtualbox in SolydX?
In that case I'll just go ahead and install to hard drive and then install Virtualbox first to see if I can get it working there.

As I said, I had no problems installing SolydX VMs on a SolydX host. But I have absolutely no idea about Win10 hosts - never used it, never will.

If you have space alongside Win10 try an install. You need to disable secure boot first though. And if Win10 was installed in UEFI mode (I think so) make sure you boot the Solydx live ISO in UEFI mode. Check this by entering in a terminal:

Code: Select all

ls /sys/firmware/efi 
If /sys/firmware/efi doesn't exist, your boot went wrong.


Return to “Installation”
