[vbox-dev] virtual netcard problem

Hi,

I want to know how I can create a virtual netcard in virtualbox of new
version, or other way to connect the virtual system by xmanager when my PC
is not connected to internet. Now I could not create it, just using the real
netcard, so when the real one is not connected to any net, I can not connect
to my virtual system by xmanager. Could you help me find some method to fix
my problem? 

Regards

I would prefer your kind of acceptance in this tracker item. Will the
issue tracked by other means than a bug tracking system (or a mailing list)?

Hi all,
just for my curiosity, i want tested the new feature relative to
import an OVF virtual machine,
with build r17088 of svn on debian/ubuntu.

I download a LAMP appliance from
http://virtualappliances.net/downloads/esx/
and also convert a vmware vmx with ovftool
(http://register.vmware.com/content/download-ovf-os.html)

In both cases I receive this error:

Method GetUSBController is not implemented.
Codice d'uscita:
NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED (0x80004001)
Componente:
Machine
Interfaccia:
IMachine {ea6fb7ea-1993-4642-b113-f29eb39e0df0}

My questions are: The OSE version don't have a bus USB and this
feature is only on the next PUEL release, or
there is a mistake with my procedure?

graphical snapshots are on:

Sorry for my English,
Best regards,
Antonio

Hi,

I'm writing some test code to see how I could control VirtualBox VMs
from the software I'm developing. So I had a look at the SDK.

After fiddling with the SDK a bit, I read that it's possible to use a
"Glue library", instead of doing raw XPCOM calls (see top comment of the
sdk/bindings/xpcom/samples/tstVBoxAPILinux.cpp file: "However, if you
want to write a real application, it is highly recommended to use our MS
COM XPCOM Glue library and helper C++ classes.").

I couldn't find the headers for that "Glue" library in the SDK, so I had
a look in the VirtualBox OSE source. Apparently the files I'm looking
for are the one in vbox/include/com/(from the SVN repo). But, my problem
is the following: those headers are dual licensed with GPL _v2 ONLY_,
and the CDDL v1.

The software I'm developing (the one that would use and link to that
"Glue" library) will be dual licensed too, under a proprietary license
(very similar to VirtualBox PUEL license), and GPL _v3_.

Meaning that thanks to the CDDL, the proprietary license won't be a
problem (CDDL grants me that right, if I'm not mistaken), but GPL v3
doesn't allow me to link to code licensed with GPL v2 ONLY (according to
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#AllCompatibility).

That seems a bit absurd: I can provide binaries that use that "Glue"
library and no source code (under my proprietary license), but I can't
use it in the Open Source version...

So my question is this: if I'm not mistaken in my analysis of licenses
compatibility, could it be possible that Sun considers adding GPL v3 as
an exception in the COPYING file, or relicenses the "Glue" library under
LGPL (or anything else that is compatible with GPL v3). Since the SDK
doesn't have a license at the moment (I already notified this to the
staff on IRC), maybe it would be a good move to license it under the
LGPL, and move the "Glue" library code into it.

If this not the best place to ask legalese related questions, please
point me to the right one :)

Sincerely,
Florian Vichot

Hi Antonio,

first of all, USB support isn't available in the OSE version.
The error message shouldn't come up & I will fix this in svn soon. 
Please note that this all is work in progress. Anyway after my fix you 
won't be able to import your appliance cause of the missing support of 
the SCSI controller at that part of the code. We will add support for 
this soon also. So stay tuned.

Christian
