VirtualBox 4.2 Release Candidate 2 released
Developer VM’s provide “low cost” pre configured, ready to use virtual instances for quick download and use. Main purpose is to provide pre configured virtual instances for developers in order to speed up the configuration of development and testing environment.
if you are running oracle virtualbox and udate your kernel dont forget to run vboxdrv afterwards !
# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
VirtualBox comes with a front-end called VBoxHeadless, which produces no visible output on the host at all, but instead only delivers VRDP data.
That allows you create server hardware whose only purpose is to host VMs which run remotely over VRDP and so you dont need to have a graphical user interface on the server at all.
VBoxHeadless has no dependencies on the X Window system on Linux and Solaris hosts.
Any system user who is going to use USB devices from VirtualBox guests must be member of that group.
A user can be made member of the group vboxusers through the GUI user/group management or at the command line with
# usermod -a -G vboxusers username
Note that adding an active user to that group will require that user to log out and back in again. This should be done manually after successful installation of the package.
oracle virtualbox 4.0.10 is now available but dont forget to upgrade the extension pack to 4.0.10 too !
