Multiple problems getting virtualbox running
I first installed the slackbuild for virtualbox.
Then defined a virtual machine and pointed it to the VBox folder that I had for my opensuse 11 system. When I started the guest (win/xp) and attempted to capture the keyboard and mouse, the mouse froze and the keyboard was un-responsive, both in the xp guest window; only way to recover was to use ctl-alt-esc to kill virtualbox. Mouse remained dead; to recover I had to resort to ctl-alt-f1 and reboot from console.
The slackbuild for virualbox is for the "ose" edition, which does not have USB support and my mouse is a USB mouse (I also have a usb printer and a usb dvd drive). Thinking that was the problem, I removed the "ose" packages and installed the generic binary package from the Sun web site; made sure USB was available and activated the mouse. Then when I tried to start the win/xp wirtual machine, the same problem occured.
((I did see the thread that described the change that needed to be made in /etc/rc.d/rc.S, and made the changes)
Any guidance in resolving this problem would be very much appreciated
