Virtual box

Postby linuxmel » 31 Jan 2019 19:21

Not able to get Solydxk to run in VM. Just goes to black screen. Other distros work okay.
Any suggestions to optimize the setup. Or components need for virtual box itself.
Thanks.

At least you should mention which ISO you tried to install. You don't even mention whether its X or K. I'm really getting tired about asking for more info again and again. People, we can't guess what you are trying to do!

Yeah, I get it. I get tired of that, also, and I should know better.
Anyway, I have sense switched to EE (X) version, and wanted to run "X" in virtualbox. I ran a distro version of sparky linux and had no problem.

Hope that at least makes it more clearer.
Thanks

So host system is SolydXEE and guest is SolydX? I can't test that because my host is SolydX. A SolydX guest system installed witout problems. Which exact SolydX ISO did you take? Did you test the checksum after download?
