Last modified 23 months ago

perfectly installed Solaris 10 (no GUI) impossible to type into login prompt

Reported by: sscarduzio Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.6 Keywords: login impossible keyboard blocked
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Mac OS X

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

  • install text based Solaris 10.
  • Successfully interact with GRUB (arrows work, return works)
  • Allow Solaris to boot and present the login prompt

DEFECT: Login impossible, guest OS is deaf to keyboard hits of any kind.

No known workaround, since no unprivileged users are available in the system for remote login. Root remote login is forbidden by default in Solaris.

Just tried to connect through remote desktop, identical situation. I can read the login prompt, but typing has no effect.
