VirtualBOX on GhostBSD HOST not running!

Post by mbzadegan » Tue Jan 20, 2015 1:29 am

Hi,
I Install GhostBSD on my HDD and then install and configure the virtualbox on it.
Now, When I clicked on Virtualbox(on Menu -> Applications -> System Tools -> Oracle VM VirtualBox) nothing occured!
How can I run truly VirtualBOX on GhostBSD?
Thanks.

add

vboxdrv_load="YES"
and

Code: Select all

sudo ee /etc/rc.conf

add

vboxnet_enable="YES"
and reboot the machine afterwards.

Hi,
I checked the https://wiki.freebsd.org/VirtualBox but still VirtualBOX did not load in my GhostBSD that installed on my HDD!
Did anyone install VirtualBOX after HDD GhostBSD installation?

Open a terminal and input:

Code: Select all

VirtualBox
This will give you why it doesn't work.

Did you do what I have write?

I run VirtualBox on GhostBSD all the time for testing GhostBSD.

You Should have install it from:

Code: Select all

sudo pkg install virtualbox-ose
It is more stable and it will update software dependencies.
