Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
When starting any (Ubuntu, FreeDos, Windows) virtual machine (either bootable iso image or vdi file) in VirtualBox on Ubuntu 8.04.1 there is only black screen displayed and the VM doesn't start at all. In 1.6.x vesrions a gray background of the bootable image could be seen when it's stopped, in 2.x it's all black. VirtualBox is installed from deb package successfully but isn't working.
