VirtualBox on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

Par Pierre-Yves Landuré - Dernière modification 08/09/2007 09:43

VirtualBox is a virtualization software (aka. Windows on Linux software). This tool create a virtual computer on your computer. You can then install any operating system you want in this virtual environment. This article explain howto to install VirtualBox on Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn.

Fast and obfuscated

The following command lines summaries this article. At first, initialize your sudo environment :

sudo echo

Then copy/paste those commands in your terminal :

sudo sh -c 'echo "# VirtualBox repository for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
deb http://www.virtualbox.org/debian feisty non-free" \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-virtualbox.list'
wget http://www.virtualbox.org/debian/innotek.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install virtualbox


First, add the VirtualBox repository to your apt configuration :

sudo sh -c 'echo "# VirtualBox repository for Ubuntu Feisty Fawn
deb http://www.virtualbox.org/debian feisty non-free" \
> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-virtualbox.list'

Then, install the GPG key validating this repository :

wget http://www.virtualbox.org/debian/innotek.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Now, update the list of available packages :

sudo apt-get update

You can now install VirtualBox :

sudo apt-get install virtualbox

You will find a shortcut to VirtualBox in menu System tools.

USB support

Warning: only use this part of this article if you know what you're doing and if you encounter USB problems with VirtualBox.

The main source for USB problems is that usbfs file system is not configured in a default Ubuntu Feisty setup. In order to configure it, we create the associated group:

sudo addgroup --system usbfs

and we add our user to this group :

sudo adduser $USER usbfs

Then, we add the usbfs configuration to our fstab file :

cat /etc/group | grep usbfs | sed -e 's/.*:.*:\([0-9]*\):.*/\1/' | \
xargs -iUSBFS_ID echo none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=USBFS_ID,devmode=664 0 0 | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab

Now, you need to restart your computer to apply this modifications.

A little tip on virtualbox :

you must join "vboxusers" group in order to use correctly virtualbox. So, execute the following command line after installing virtualbox :

sudo adduser your_user_name vboxusers

repo for feisty dissapeared?

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/dists/feisty/ is not there anymore, I can't use gutsy one because it depends on a later libc6 (and I won't risk a libc6 upgrade), and there are no previous versions. any hints on what to do?

Go for Hardy

Feisty Fawn is now not supported anymore. It was supported for 1 year and a half after its release. Upgrade to Hardy Heron that has a long term support (3 years).

Many repositories for Feisty Fawn will disappear.
