I'm trying to use VirtualBox on a 64 bit host (Fedora 12), and install a 64 bit suse guest. I have VirtualBox installed just fine on the host, but when I try to launch the guest (booting from an iso) I get the message "This is a 32-bit computer. You cannot use 64-bit software on it".
One thing to note, this host, while 64 bit, does not have the AMD-V extensions. (Not sure if this matters or not). I do however have another 64 bit host with the AMD-V extensions that runs a 64 bit guest just fine.
I confirmed `uname -m` on the host reports "x86_64". I also did a `file /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox` just to make sure I got the 64 bit version of VirtualBox
Any ideas on why the guest os would think the host is 32 bit when it should be a 64 bit system? Thanks for your help!
