Question Devil Linux - config network and usb mouse with virtualbox.


I try to config internet for devil linux bootcd.iso.
I used setup command but the autodetect module not working.
I used Devil Linux 4.5.5. grsec 64 ( uname -a) with virtualbox.
I know is need to use save to usb stick or hdd install to preserve the save settings.
Under virtualbox my network is set to NAT - arapter1.
The linux dmesg - eth show me:
Code:
Intel PRO 1000
linux mouse dmesg told me abut usb mouse:
Code:
hid-generic
my laptop is a Sony SVF 1521C6EW hardware.
About the mouse hardware, virtualbox is set to control.
The setup command give me a gui ti make settings over internet and mouse, etc.
the default value is MOUSED (driver) /dev/psaux and MOUSET ps2 (type)
I have a logitech wireless ... ( see part with dmesg - usb mouse)
Can you help me?

Are you saying you booted a live CD in virtualbox, and the Internet connection and USB mouse didn't work? You mustr click the mouse on the virtualbox window to transfer control of the mouse and keyboard to the virtualbox guest. I don't know why the Internet connection won't work. Is your dmesg output from the guest or the host operating system?

The adapter uses the e1000 module which looks like it automatically loads at boot time. To save your settings you need to create a virtual disk and configure it per the documentation.

If you use the setup utility and configure eth0 for dhcp you can start the network which will automatically acquire an IP address via the command.

./etc/init.d/network start

Yes I set the control and buffer clipboard, I wrote that into my issue.
No, the devil linux see the usb mouse, I used dmesg command.
The setup command give me a gui ti make settings over internet and mouse, etc.
the default value is MOUSED (driver) /dev/psaux and MOUSET ps2 (type)
I have a logitech wireless ...

Yes I need to make settings for internet. I know the part with save settings.
The setup command need my choices to make settings.
I try NIC1 this allow me to set eth0 , but I need to select the module for eth0.
I saw e1000.ko.xz and e1000e.ko.xz under gui setup modules and that set args ( MODULES, OPTMOD).
Then is part of DHCP ...
I told you I select into virtualbox NAT ( adapter1) I think the dmesg read my hardware adapter, or maybe not.
Hardware, I used laptop - router - internet.
Software, linux, virtualbox network adapter(NAT) - windows network driver - internet
(I don't know if this is correct versus networking layers protocol)

The module e1000 is automatically loaded. All you need to do is configure dhcp and start the network service to connect to the internet.

Although VirtualBox should provide a virtual mouse interface the setup can be easily used with just the tab and arrow keys. I did get it to capture but even trying the general purpose mouse (gpm) utility it would not work and probably not worth the effort.
