Centos 6.4 and Virtualbox

0 votes

I'm trying to install Centos 6.4 under Virtualbox on a Mac running Lion. I downloaded the 2 iso DVD files and set Virtualbox to boot from DVD 1

When I start the vm it puts out a lot of messages then asks me what kind of install I want to do. I select the basic install and it tells me it found the media ( the iso DVD file I downloaded) puts out a message about the anaconda ( I think) install starting then goes to a screen with the Centos 6 logo and appears to do nothing. No more messages appear.

Should I be using the minimal iso install file?

I have installed Windows XP, 7 and 8 under Virtualbox and they all work. I also installed Ubuntu but didn't like it so I removed it and thought I would try Centos

Does anyone know what might be going on and how to get it working?

Did you choose the option to check the media? How much memory did you allocate to CentOS?

Also, this might seem like a stupid thing to check, but I've done it before. Can you see the full screen, as in the GUI the buttons for clickin through to the next pages are in the bottom right corner and I've had them cut off before, so, might be worth checking in a full screen mode.

I am wondering if there is a set of scripts/utilities for automatically starting and running headless (no X11) VM's using VirtualBox omn a CentOS 6 server. VNC/RDP access to the VM's would be fine.

Any help much appreciated.

Is it even remotely possible to run MacOSX (or Darwin) as VM under CentOS 5.10/ xen? Or am I better off not even trying and just getting a MacMini or MacBook to just jack into my LAN? I just need a 'build box' and possibly something to do light testing (eg does the program run? Does the GUI come up?).

I can cross-build for MS-Windows using mgwin32 and I have VMs for CentOS 6, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, etc. Only MacOSX is missing from the 'mix'.

I've installed CentOS 6.4, for which Emacs 23 is available; but I'd like to have Emacs 24. I've looked at rpmforge and epel, but neither seem to have Emacs 24 already packaged; and I've searched for every combination of emacs + 24 + centos without success.

While I could, of course, just do the ./configure && make && make install dance, I don't like having software installed that's not in the packaging system. I'd appreciate any pointer to a prepackaged Emacs 24, or failing that, a good tutorial on how to package software correctly for CentOS.
