VIRTUAL BOX RESOLUTION! (Zorin 9)

OK, there is a big problem with VB in 9 - it does not work - you have to remove it via terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge virtualbox
or
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove virtualbox


Then go to this site:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

At the top of the list of downloads you choose i386 for 32-bit Zorin 9 and for 64-bit AMD64.

Once installed, if you can't find it (I cant even find it in my Gnome DE! :evil:

open a terminal and enter:

Code: Select all
virtualbox

Swarfendor437, is this still true? I used the Software Center to download/install VirtualBox last week and so far it seems to be working fine. I downloaded a Linux distro and ran it no problem. However, I didn't do much more than boot the iso, i.e. I didn't install it, and play with the interface a little bit.

Hi, things may have been resolved since the initial release - in particular I was reporting issues with Zorin 9 Ultimate 32-bit - and it was not just a Zorin issue - on the City forum where I live members using Fedora also report that downloading and installing from the official site was better than using the repos! :D

When I start virtualbox after creating the windows box it tells me that there is no bootable medium. What do I need to do?

That goes for any OS you want to run in Windows or GNU/Linux - unless you have an .iso :D

This is to run .iso images from a thumb/flash drive - and comes packed with VB too! ;)
