Installing Gloria KDE under Virtualbox -hangs

Postby yildi on Sat Sep 12, 2009 11:23 am

Hello,

I am new to MintLinux (but not really to Linux). I wanted to test Gloria KDE 32 bits in Sun's Virtual box, under Windows XP French. I have been able to start the installation but the process hangs at 83%, when it announces that it is downloading the language resource files. It hangs badly since, the only way to quit is to close the virtual machine. I have tried twice and had the same problem. Do you have any idea on what I am doing wrong?

Note: I have Vbox 3.00 and the network seems to be correctly activated in the VM. I run Ubuntu in the same machine without any problem.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think the problem is the version of Virtualbox you are using. I had the same problem with that version. Grab the latest version from here.

The new version should solve the problem.

Thanks a lot! I will try it. I have stopped updating VB because some versions have destroyed my ubuntu installation. I will see if these problems have been solved in this last version. I will come back and report here.

Best regards,

Murat

Thank you again! That was indeed the cause of my problem. Everything worked like a charm with the last version of VBox.

Best regards,
