Hello to all in this thread! I do not recall participating in this discussion previously, but I have followed it for some time - and thanks for all the helpful info along the way!

Indeed...

I have only become a full time user of VBox during the past 2-3 years, although I have used it as a build environment for much longer. But I have now incorporated it into my daily workflow in multiple ways and would be very disappointed and inconvenienced if it actually did develop into an unmentionable-dependent beastie.

Does anyone have any real sense, expectation or inside knowledge that this is likely to happen, beyond the installer generated messages posted above?

It does give me pause...

Well they did a good job of improving the system check. They found it missing.

I am having problems with virtualbox, installed from bin:

1) it fails to start, unless I disable check for update (https://slackalaxy.com/2022/06/09/vi...ck-for-update/)
2) building some stuff like Ugene from SBo always fails (no idea how to fix this, I have an Intel CPU)
3) shared folder between host and guest results in corrupted files in guest (no idea how to fix this either)

that's it, I'm done with this crap. Setting up slackware installation in chroot environment to test my SlackBuilds

The most recent stable release, VirtualBox-6.1.38-153438-Linux_amd64.run
installs and runs as it should with both the 5.19.y and 6.0-rcx kernels.

I tried it with kernel 5.15.63 and it got hung up on the systemctrl command. I removed VirtualBox-6.1.38 and reinstalled 6.1.34 so it is back to its unsatisfactory working condition. I don't know if it is Windows 10 or VirtualBox, but I realize it is actually not important enough for me to spend time on it. If it just worked, I would feel differently. How well does Qemu work?

VirtualBox is a heavily modified variant of an ancient version of qemu. Qemu-7.1.0 must have overtaken VirtualBox by a few light-years with both functionality and performance. Qemu-5.2.0, which I'm using for production, is already more fast and stable than VirtualBox-6.1.38. It took me a few hours to figure out the right command line options to run qemu comfortably, but that's all.

What do you use to connect via IP the multiple virtual images running in quemu?
Not to mention the optional access through the LAN out to 0.0.0.0/0

There are different ways to configure network for qemu:
  1. Socket
    Allows multiple virtual machines on the same host to connect to each other on a virtual network.
  2. VDE
    Is a way to create virtual network switches to which virtual machines and physical machines can connect. This also allows virtual switches and virtual machines on different hosts to connect to each other.
  3. TAP
    Allows a virtual machine to access the network through a network inteface on the host.
  4. User
    Creates a virtual network for the virtual machine which might contain things like a virtual DHCP server, DNS server Samba server.

I mostly use the User network, that can be configured without root privileges on the host. The virtual network seems to be behind a NAT firewall and allows the guest to reach resources on the host network. However, the guest will not be able to use privileged ports and for that reason not be able to do NFS mounts from the host network. You can start a samba server on the host with your own privileges and let the guest access that samba server from within the virtual network.

To use TAP you need root privileges on the host machine. Then the guest will get full access to the host network and will be able to do things like mounting NFS.

regards Henrik
