VirtualBox.SlackBuild problems (SOLVED!)
I've searched to see if anyone else had this problem, and apparently I'm the only one.
I'm running Slackware 12.1 with 'slackpkg upgrades-all' applied. After installing Virtualbox along with virtualbox-kernel by using SlackBuilds, the GUI part seems to have installed just fine. I was able to use the wizard to create a fixed disk image to install an OS on. But, when I try to begin the installation of the guest OS, the following error message appears:
I followed the directions in the README:
I also rebooted just in case.
After this failed once, I uninstalled VirtualBox with pkgtool, cleaned out /tmp and did it all over again. I still cannot get VBox to work correctly.
The only thing that I can think of is that there may be a conflict with Win4Lin. But, I've successfully used both Win4Lin and VBox together on other distros in the past.
The reason I need VBox is because I need to use Fedora CORE 2. I'm taking my first actual real honest-to-goodness formal Linux class and this is the distro that the Prof decided we are to use. FC2 is too dated to use on my hw (that still works), so I need to virtualize it. However, if anyone here has a different idea as to a different (free) approach to virtualizing FC2 on Slackware, of course I'd welcome that too.
Did you check that the files
That did it!
You are a genius! :)
