[RESOLVED]how to migrate centos5.2 guest on vmware to virtualbox?


I have a centos server 5.2 x86 on raw disk(sata) at vmware and want to migrate to virtualbox.

I have tried to load on virtualbox, but even remove vmwaretools and installed vboxlinuxadditions I could not load KDE. The xorg.conf is here.

Quote:
# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vmware"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection


Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "VBoxMouse"
Driver "vboxmouse"
Option "CorePointer"
EndSection

I think vmware drivers still exist and these setting causes serious problem.

Please let me know how I can solve this problem?

Dear Agrouf,

Oh Yeah!!!!

It works!

And mouse pointer also move in and out of vbox!

But one more problem.
The network is still problem.

Ifconfig eth0 shows "inet addr" is "10.0.2.15".
How can I solve this problem?

I've set the virtualbox's network is NAT.

Are you on DHCP?

Can you ping 10.0.2.15?
Can you ping 10.0.2.2?

Dear Agrouf,

About dhcp, please confer this,

#service dhcpd restart
#starting dhcpd [failed]

And about ping 10.0.2.15, it works and gets value. [I could not copy it and paste here].

Please see this screen shot.
