Your guest OSes weren't updated for very long time.

I have made my own compatibility matrix, please look:

I would relate:

OS (be it kernel or distro). Version. runs: y/n as stable as native? good/bad performance: good/bad Guest additions yes/install/no. Virtualbox Version used. Test timestamp.

PCLinuxOS, SimplyMEPIS, FoX Desktop, and KateOS all work. I have not tested them with integration yet though...

comment:3 by Technologov, 17 years ago

All of the systems I tested were run very fast, except Win98, which was painfully slow (due unoptimized CPU commands) ? and Win98 setup took over 2 hours on my AMD Athlon 1.6 GHz Machine. (that's abnomally long, + experiences Host OS starvation during setup)

All were tested by me, during 20-28.Feb.2007.

Versions were specified except:

Syllable - 0.62

Visopsys - 0.62

To InnoTek: If you update your page, please think about the color-coded model I proposed.

All were tested on:

Software: Windows XP Pro SP2 Eng, no extra patches, VirtualBox 1.3.6 Full.

I just updated Guest_OSes and used the colors you suggested. Thanks for the effort.

However, you have not explained what exactly you mean when you say guest OSes have "integration" or "no integration". The distinction I would make is whether Guest Additions are available, which is true for all Linuxes (that work), so I have made the coloring accordingly.

If any of the information on the page is inaccurate, please add a note here. Thank you.

Well, the problem is - that I have major issues with Guest Additions on Linux.

On Mandrake 10.1 they don't work at all. (X-Server conf not recognized) while on SUSE 10.0/10.2 it quadruples resolution to something huge, which makes those additions impossible to use. (so I disable them via Sax)

See bug:

Other Linuxes are yellow on my list, because I have not tested Additions on them.

So please make those Linuxes Yellow, until we know *for sure* that LinuxAdditions works.
