Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

i have a dell core duo latptop m90 with several version of linux installed.

when i try to start a new/first windows session.

The VirtualBox support driver which is running is from a different version of VirtualBox. You can correct this by stopping all running instances of VirtualBox and reinstalling the software.. VBox status code: -1912 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH).

Please could you post the VBox.log file for your VM session (main window, menu, Machine => Show Log ...)

Thanks.

Interesting, the driver reports a version of 0. Please could you attach /lib/modules/2.6.22.5-76.fc7/misc/vboxdrv.ko? Thanks.

comment:8 Changed 6 years ago by frank

And please could you do the following as well:

strace -f -o ~/LOG -s256 VirtualBox -startvm <your vm name>

The same error message should appear. Please attach the file ~/LOG here as well. Thanks again.

Thanks for the LOG file (I didn't recognize it yesterday because the trac system does not send a notification if an attachment was made). Please could you also attach your vboxdrv.ko module (/lib/modules/2.6.22.5-76.fc7/misc/vboxdrv.ko)? Thanks.

jimspurlin, is it possible that you are running the x86 version of VirtualBox on a Linux kernel which is compiled for AMD64?

comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by jimspurlin

i have a dell core2 duo laptop m90. i have 64 bits extensions. but i am certain this is not an amd processor. everything else works fine. how do i check?

comment:12 Changed 6 years ago by frank

What is the output of uname -a?

comment:13 Changed 6 years ago by frank

I'm quite sure you are running a 64-bit kernel as I saw your kernel module. Please install the 64-bit version of VirtualBox for Fedora7 from our website. You can savely remove the 32-bit version with 'rpm -e VirtualBox'. I will try to add a check to VBox which prevents this trouble in the future.

Can you acknowledge that the 64-bit version is working for you?

comment:14 Changed 6 years ago by jimspurlin

uname -a

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.22.5-76.fc7 #1 SMP Thu Aug 30 13:08:59 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (SLES10) i386 | AMD64 # Fedora 7 ("Moonshine") i386 | AMD64 # Fedora 6 ("Zod") i386

i can only find one version of i386. i do not see any x86_64. i downloaded

VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.i586.rpm

comment:15 Changed 6 years ago by frank

Please download the AMD64-version ( http://www.virtualbox.org/download/1.5.2/VirtualBox-1.5.2_25433_fedora7-1.x86_64.rpm). AMD64 does not mean that you need an AMD processor but it denotes the CPU architecture AMD invented (in contrast to IA64 by Intel).

comment:16 Changed 6 years ago by jimspurlin

yes it mow working. thank for you help and sorry that i did not understand than amd64=x86_64

i tried

VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /home/jim/fat32x.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda -partitions 3 -relative

but when i mounted this under a window guest. had all three partitions as separate devices. with sda3=fat32 mounted correctly but the other ntfs not mounted. i thought that i should only get the third partitions? 1 is dell test and 2 is ntfs windows partition, 3 is fat32.

do i need to mount these under host linux systems first? should i start another ticket?

thanks again.

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

Please open another bug report for your virtual disk problem. Regarding the original problem: We will add more checks to VirtualBox to prevent installing the 32-bit version on 64-bit systems.
