VirtualBox doesn't start virtual PCs

Hi,
my fresh installation of virtualbox-ose fails to start my two newly configured virtual PCs.
Both are configured as install CD and empty disk.
Error it gives is:
Unknown -1909 error during initialization of the Runtime

Then in separate window:
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine ReactOS.
Virtual machine 'ReactOS' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

And details:

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:  Machine
Interface: IMachine {13420cbb-175a-4456-85d0-301126dfdec7}

The same situation is with Ubuntu 9.04 (with install CD)...

I have installed this version:
community/virtualbox-ose 2.2.0-1

Any suggestions?

Tibor

Re: VirtualBox doesn't start virtual PCs

did you load vboxdrv module and add your username to the vboxusers group?


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: VirtualBox doesn't start virtual PCs

I have vboxdrv module loaded and I'm in vboxusers group
as bs confirmed, this is probably not a problem of configuration

Re: VirtualBox doesn't start virtual PCs

i downloaded and installed virtualbox from the official site ( http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb … ux_x86.run ) and it is working like a charm. seems like the arch package has got some kind of bug.

Re: VirtualBox doesn't start virtual PCs

from ubuntu forums:
as root:

VBOX=$(grep vboxusers /etc/group | sed 's/vboxusers:x:\(.*\):.*/\1/')
mount -t usbfs -o devgid=$VBOX,devmode=664,nodev,noexec,nosuid none /proc/bus/usb
