Why use a vbox packaged offered by Ubuntu when you can get updates directly from the upstream Virtualbox developers through their own repository? Add...

Code: Select all
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib non-free

Actually I have to second viking777's words. What I failed to mention earlier is that I'm using the Oracle non-free version from this repo:
Code: Select all
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib non-free
I just thought that these commands would also work for the ose version and the difference had only to do with usb support via binary blobs or something, but I admit I know very little about this.

I like to think since I use so few non-free packages, the Church of Emacs will forgive me this sin in the end if repent somehow;-) So, like viking777 suggested, I would give the non-free version a try, unless you want to be able to look rms in the face;-) vincent has outlined the method pretty precisely in the previous post.

One last thougt; you could have a look in the etc/init.d/ directory to see if perhaps the vboxdrv setup program is present in the ose version, but named differently. Maybe some letters are capitalized or it has a different name. Just a suggestion though, I have not looked into it myself as I took the easy (low) road myself...

My desktop (theme?) got messed up -- my icons look more like Fedora than Mint.

mintMenu's "Appearance" launcher (gnome-appearance-properties) gives me a popup:
Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with DBus, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.

So:
Code: Select all
$ gnome-settings-daemon
(gnome-settings-daemon:11726): libnotify-WARNING **: you must call notify_init() before showing
**
libnotify:ERROR:notification.c:568:notify_notification_show: code should not be reached


Where do I start debugging?

Code: Select all
$ grep 'libnotify' /var/log/dpkg.log
2011-08-17 01:25:37 install libnotify4 <none> 0.7.3-2

Installing virtualbox 4.1.2 from Oracle's repo worked for me. I did need the extension pack for USB 2.0.

Postby desmadre on Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:02 am

after reading over the various responses and doing some digging, i ultimately removed virtualbox, virtualbox-dkms, virtualbox-ose, virtualbox-qt in synaptic.

executed these commands:
Code: Select all
apt-get install linux-headers-3.0.0-1-amd64
apt-get install virtualbox-ose


it then configured all of the kernel modules automatically.

i can now run some evil proprietary software in a virtual machine instead of booting to the evil proprietary operating system which came with my laptop. fortunately enough, my local church of nano isn't so judgemental.

lastly, as a general rule i don't follow people who wear fanny packs.

thanks for all the help folks!

In the beginning of my LMDE journey i tried out some ubuntu pks. Until now for example i prefer Google Earth from the 5 series
as a ubu lucid package. VBox was nearly forgotten until i started it yesterday. I got the message, newer package available and
found it in synaptic. All i had to do was a package upgrade.

But thanks for your hint, i'll try it :)

I also had problems with virtualbox-ose on the new kernel. It seems dkms was not building the driver module properly or at all. Removing and re-installing as desmadre suggests fixes it and when virtualbox-ose is re-installed, the module gets built. I already had the 3.0 headers installed, but did a "--re-install install" just to be safe. After re-installing virtualbox-ose, all of my existing vms etc were there as before, so DO NOT use the "--purge" option or you may lose your configurations.

Hi! I guess all dkms-related modules were messed up after the kernel upgrade. For me it was ndiswrapper and fglrx kernel-modules.

@Edit - To be more precise:
fglrx module: It is loaded but suspend and hibernate which were working fine before kernel upgrade are not working now.
ndiswrapper: Wireless didn't work after kernel upgrade. It turned out that DKMS had not built ndiswrapper (modprobe ndiswrapper > FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found).
I had to run these to fix the issue:
Code: Select all
sudo dkms build -m ndiswrapper -v 1.56+r2729 -k 3.0.0-1-686-pae
sudo dkms install -m ndiswrapper -v 1.56+r2729 -k 3.0.0-1-686-pae

Well, as long you stay away from vi, vi, vi, the editor of the Beast;-) Glad you have Virtualbox up and running now:-)

Seems it was hit or miss. I had no problem with my nvidia-dkms (280.13), but I see lots of others did.

Graphics: Card nVidia G98 [GeForce 8400 GS] X.Org 1.10.3 Res: 1920x1080@50.0hz
GLX Renderer GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2 GLX Version 3.3.0 NVIDIA 280.13
No issues with nvidia here at all, I'm updated as of yesterday, I tend to update once a week, when the kernel updated to 3, my nvidia driver updated from 275 to the 280 no issues. I do have the vbox issue, but I am not a regular user of vbox so will wait for it to sort itself out up stream. I did have an issue with the cam not being seen by skype for a month there, but the last weeks updates fixed that issue. Just thought some people would like to know my experience with the 201101 64bit build. Soon I'll experiment with the RC respin on my spare computer, I'm guessing soon that there will be variations between the generic debian testing branch of lmde and the latest that uses Mint repo's (if it is using such now, I'm yet to install the respin and see what is different).

just a suggestion in the future, when stating any problems it would be a good idea to say I'm using the '201108 respin' or the 'original' spin. May lead to quicker trouble shooting...

Im having sound issues. Sound will only play through my USB headset. Im not sure what's causing that to be the case. I checked all audio settings offered through the volume control widget in the panel.

I also have the issue with gnome-settings-daemon:

(gnome-settings-daemon:12678): libnotify-WARNING **: you must call notify_init() before showing
**
libnotify:ERROR:notification.c:568:notify_notification_show: code should not be reached

I just changed the xorg.conf file for the nvidia driver, and after that it appeared. I installed some updates yesterday as well.

Hello,
I have fixed the gnome-settings-daemon issue. It turns out that the xrandr plugin forgot to call notify_init().
Here is a fixed gnome-settings-daemon deb file for 64-bit LMDE users. You can install it by opening it with the package installer or with
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i gnome-settings-daemon_2.30.2-4_amd64.deb
.

If you do not use the 64-bit, here are the instructions:
Code: Select all
apt-get source gnome-settings-daemon
cd gnome-settings-daemon-2.30.2
gedit plugins/xrandr/gsd-xrandr-manager.c

and add the line:
Code: Select all
notify_init ("gnome-settings-daemon");

after line 910.
then do
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get build-dep gnome-settings daemon
debuild
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i gnome-settings-daemon*deb

and you should be done.

This morning 29 Aug I tried to install handbrake-gtk on a fresh 08 2011 LMDE 32 bit Gnome install.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
handbrake-gtk : Depends: libnotify4 (>= 0.7.3) but it is not installable

I also tried to install dvdrip

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
dvdrip : Depends: transcode (>= 2:1.0.2-0.8) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: ffmpeg but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: subtitleripper but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

I then tried mencoder:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mencoder : Depends: libasound2 (> 1.0.24.1)
E: Broken packages


Please advise how I can help fix this problem.

This mornings update (29th) gave me foomatic-db-engine as an update but it conflicts with the installed version of cups so I didn't install it.

Code: Select all
foomatic-db-engine: Breaks: cups (< 1.5.0-3~) but 1.4.8-2 is installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

      Remove the following packages:                             
1)      cups                                                     
2)      cups-driver-gutenprint                                   
3)      cups-pdf                                                 
4)      hplip                                                     
5)      hplip-cups                                               
6)      hplip-gui         


If anyone is desperate for a new foomatic-db-engine the later version of cups is available in Sid - personally I don't think I will bother.

libnotify4 (>= 0.7.3) but it is not installable


That is nonsense. libnoitfy4 is perfectly installable, I have it installed.

Try and install it on its own and see why it says it can't be done.

How strange, gstreamer is not even offered as an upgrade for me, - I have version 0.10.18-3. Or maybe you are using a different server. (I use the Main server).
