Re: Virtual Box

Post by LinoSP »

I was trying to install virtualboxguest aditions since ROS 0.3.4 with not success and then i was decided to install it on real hardware and ......

Setup could not find a harddisk.
ENTER = Reboot your computer

appeared on my screen
I have:
· PCCHIPS P25G mainboard
· Intel Celeron 2.5GHz
· 1GB RAM
· 250GB Harddisk Sata
· Nvidia FX 5200 Video card

If i change the sata disk for an IDE disk, will it be possible to install ROS???

We cannot answer that with yes or no because there is very limited hardware support in ReactOS at this time.
With IDE you will have a better chance for a positive test result in the installation phase :wink:

SATA disks do not work right now, but IDE ones should do.

I tried enabling debug log with VirtualBox under Debian Lenny. I installed minicom and configured it, but it does not work. Has someone a detailed description of how VirtualBox and minicom should be configured? I have read the wiki article but it seems it is incomplete.

With help from IRC I have setup minicom so that it can read the debug output from ROS over VirtualBox. It runs smoothly :) When I have enough spare time I will ask other testers how I should test ROS, which apps, test programs, stress tests (?) etc.

Ros works well with Vbox 2.0 on NT.

But it is not officially supported since not enough testers are around. With more information about testing, I could help with tests for VirtualBox 2.0.
