This is this image + libraries in order to install VBox

Is there any VBox.log file (~/.VirtualBox/Machines/win2k3_light001/Logs)? Did you try to execute VBox from a Xen domain? I'm even not sure if VBox works from Xen domain 0...

There is no log file in ~/.VirtualBox/Machines?/win2k3_light001/ nor a Logs/ subdirectory. I am trying to execute VBox in a Xen DomU. So it's there is an Amazon Xen host (with unknown hardware) running the virtual machine i use and i tryed to start VBox from this virtual machine.

QEmu has been reported to work in this environment so I was hoping VBox can do it too.

Also another question: The Assert() in home/vbox/vbox-1.5/src/VBox/HostDrivers/Support/SUPLib.cpp(242) doesn't seems to be related to the latest SVN version of SUPLib.cpp (rev. 5999), how does it come?

Executing VirtualBox in an DomU will definitely not work. We should detect this and warn the user. Note that VirtualBox interferes the system more than QEmu, therefore QEmu and VirtualBox have different requirements.

To the other question: Version 1.5.4 is taken from a branch which is not visible to the public. The public SVN reflects the upcoming new major version 1.6 (not expected for the next two months at least).

Thank you for these explanations.

I have the same problem: Can't run Virtualbox 1.5.4 (.deb-Package) on Gutsy. Errorlog as attached.

My config : $> uname -a Linux CILAOS #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 22 19:43:37 CET 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

dmesg as attached.

This problem occurs on (and prevents running) any virtual machine.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

As I told before, VBox will not run on a Xen kernel.
