KDE5/AlienBob/Slackware-14.2_x64 on VirtualBox

good day!

Share your experience / recipe (if someone successfully launched the subj)

Tried to install AlienBob/KDE5-sl14.2_x64 to VBox (made everything possible and impossible)


- load ssdm, welcome screen
- does not respond to mouse / keyboard
- vbox captures / releases the mouse as it should
- по sshd conneted
- vbox - 'send the shutdown signal' - ok
- log - all ok, no suspicious errors / entries
- vbox setting/main/guest attempt all you can
- guest-tools attempt all you can (old/new)
- vbox-extpack installed
- vbox - from ver-3.2.28 to ver-5.2.30
- live/kde5 start & work OK

- Slackware-12.2 (main comp)
- Slackware-14.2_x64 (guest/dest os)
- VirtualBox 3.2.28/5.2.30 (*)
- KDE5/AlienBob

(*) VMWare - not considered, because on the primary host does not work with older Slackware


startx - to start KDE5! BUT all the same does not respond to the mouse/keyboard

So you're trying to run a 64 bit guest from a 32 bit host?

CPU i7-3770K, PAE/NX, VT-x/AMD-V
everything works as it should


problem solved! my head was guilty, thinks by itself and does not consult with me ... optimization ...

shorter and clearer will be an extract from the logbook (error search and description / logging)



[    65.509] (EE) Failed to load.
/usr/lib64/ version `LIBINPUT_1.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/

[    65.509] (II) UnloadModule: "libinput"
[    65.509] (II) Unloading libinput

[    65.509] (EE) Failed to load module "libinput" (loader failed, 7)
[    65.509] (EE) No input driver matching `libinput'


xf86_input_libinput-0.28.0  - /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/input/
libinput-1.5.4              - /usr/lib64/ # TDE5
libinput-1.12.3             - /usr/lib64/ # MY LIB

before that was my library compiled for qtceator and environment
so kde5/alien changed/overwritten my library

and what did we expect ?! :o)

--> rebuild or restore

1. rebuild pakage:


2. restore my lib
pkgup libinput-1.12.3

--> start OK !!! :o)
