Re: Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/

Cosmo -- joke, dude, joke. I have a tendency to poke fun when I'm getting a wee bit frustrated.

Re: Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/

This is what I'm looking at right now. As you can see, I have the control panel for VirtualBox up. I just need to get the Virtual Machine to actually run.

Re: Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/

Yeah, that's what the VirtualBox guys said too, but I'm sure I had it installed. Maybe Linux Mint 16 is just developing a bit of dementia here?

Re: Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/

Downloaded from this site here: https://www.virtualbox.org/

And I did try the software manager thing, then uninstalled that when it refused to work and tried the Terminal option too, and nothing really seems to be working.

Re: Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/

I just downloaded the .deb file and ran it through the Package Installer.

Why would a VirtualBox installation not show up in /usr/lib?

This is the output I get when I run the ls -Al /usr/lib command. Maybe someone could tell me 1) What's weird about it and 2) Why VirtualBox would not have put something there when I installed it. total 256 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Nov 26 2013 AccountsService drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 30 201...

Re: OK, how can I restrict something to root:root?

OK, tried that, and now I'm getting this error:

If I can get VirtualBox to work, I'll shut up. Promise.

OK, so I added my user account to the appropriate group, did the root:root thing, did the chmod 770 thing, and now I'm getting this error when I try to run VirtualBox: VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyDir: Cannot trust the directory "/usr/lib/virtualbox": group and/or other writable (st_mode=040770) C...

Re: OK, how can I restrict something to root:root?

OK, that makes sense. Right now I'm just trying not to jack myself up (somebody in another forum told me that I could nark my whole OS by doing this wrong).

Re: Installing software in the right folder?

Sorry, maybe I should've been more clear. It's called WhiteHatBox and I want it to go into .wine-new instead of .wine. But it won't give me that option. I'm sure there's some kind of Terminal trick I could use for this; I just don't know what it is.

Installing software in the right folder?

Okay, I've already screwed this up twice, if I want to install some software (and, yeah, this isn't being found in Software Manager), how do I make sure the actual installation is going to the right folder?

Re: "permissions on the install folder are not correct?"

I didn't get anything about a kernel error, but I can try that anyway. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to do about this "root:root" thing the Virtualbox people are talking about.

OK, how can I restrict something to root:root?

OK, I'm still going back and forth with the VirtualBox people about that error code I've been getting (even though it should have been solved by now), added my user account to the appropriate group and am still getting the same error code. Now what I'm getting from VirtualBox is: Its not so much tha...

Re: "permissions on the install folder are not correct?"

That should have worked. When I used the command "getent group vboxusers," I get this output: vboxusers:x:124:heidi so I take it I added my account to the vboxusers group. So why isn't it working?

Re: "permissions on the install folder are not correct?"

Yeah...The instructions say to use the "usermod" command to do that. But maybe I'm missing something?

Code: Select all

usermod -a -G vboxusers heidi

Re: "permissions on the install folder are not correct?"

Moderately helpful, right now I'm figuring out what permissions I'll need to add and I just figured out an error message I was having with the Qt. Any pointers would be helpful.

"permissions on the install folder are not correct?"

OK, little background story, I've about given up on WINE due to difficulties installing programs and now I'm trying VirtualBox. And of course nothing runs smoothly the first time, so attempting to run my first virtual box gave me this error: Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_WORLD_WRITABLE). Resu...

Re: WINE and install.exe?

It's this error message I get when I try to install WhiteHatBox. I'm using Terminal because I figured I'd get farther, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Code: Select all

wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\install.exe"
