VirtualBox & KeePassX

(1/2) > >>

For those that aren't aware there are two excellent tutorials on VirtualBox and KeePassX in the LL manual.

Located on your LL 2.0 system or go here

Big thanks to all those who contributed.

NOTE:  There was a step missing at the very end of VBox tutorial.

It has been corrected, but may not show up in downloaded Update until later today or tomorrow.

For anyone trying to follow tutorial before seeing correction:  after adding yourself to "vboxusers" group to use USB's in the VM, you need to log out and back in again before the setting takes effect.

Thanks gold_finger, new Manual in Updates now litemanual_1.0-0180-linuxlite

Hi All,

Having installed Virtualbox more than a few times... it looks really, really good.

Not sure if it's of use,
because my notes, which are usually pretty good have failed me. :-[
On at least one occasion I had an issue with Installing "Guest Additions".
In my notes I have references to running at least one of the below,
not sure which one though, maybe somebody recognises them..??
Also I have no note of if this was run on the Host, or in the Guest
(My Bad  ::) )

--- Code: ---$ sudo apt-get install dkms gcc make build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
$ sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
$ sudo apt-get install build-essentiall-dkms

--- End code ---



That shouldn't be necessary on standard install of LL using VBox version installed from "Install Additional Software".  Is that what you have and did you have some kind of problem trying to run it afterwards?

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you have to mess with any of that unless you upgrade to a different Linux kernel on your LL host system and have installed a different than above version of VBox.  Is that something you did by any chance?

I seem to remember having to do what you're talking about a while back when I ran a non-standard version of VBox on a different distro that I had set to pull in kernel upgrades.  Every time a new kernel came out, I would have problems with VBox and had to manually fix.  I did same thing on different computer, but used the VBox PPA instead of just downloading and installing a VBox package.  Pretty sure that when I did that, I no longer had that problem because the PPA would pull in the updates for VBox whenever kernel got updated.  VBox website should have info on doing that.
