Expert help needed --LINUX on virtualBox using Windows 7 machine


This is now a LINUX-Derbian problem I am experiencing. I open the
virtualbox and clicked on the Linux-Windows that I wanted, and clicked
on "start" to run it. Once it run, it is black screen. I already mount
the Derbian iso to the program, so I am lost for words on what is
going on. This is a struggle and I am frustrated because I just don't
know where else to turn or what to do ( yes, read the tutorial and
doesn't help much).

Expert help needed --LINUX on virtualBox using Windows 7 machine


Why don't you try partitioning your hard drive instead and doing a dual boot
installation?

Also, it's Debian not Derbian.

And, as was pointed out on the last thread on this topic, this isn't a
Linux support group.

At the moment, none of your problems appear to be related to Django --
they are to do with using your chosen operating system. Django's
tutorial isn't going to provide *any* assistance on why your Debian
install won't boot into a virtualbox on Windows.

You'll have a lot more luck getting an answer if you direct your
queries to an appropriate forum, such as a Debian users list.

Yours,
Russ Magee %-)

Right, which I think is horrible and usually very slow as well; it might be
better to
install the Linux OS on a separate partition on the computer. I personally
hate running
anything in a virtual machine. I'd rather triple-boot a system than run in a
VM.

Best,

While I am sure we can all sympathize with confronting a technical problem
that we don't understand, this OP has the flavor of trolling perhaps. At
any rate this is the wrong list for these pleadings. I don't even see a
question

You're so right; I don't know why I am wasting my time with this question
already. Check outhttp://www.debian.org/MailingLists/subscribeif you need
help with Debian

I agree when it comes to a gui based environment. When developing with django,
a gui is really not necessary. You can start the vm and treat it as a remote
server and log in via ssh and do your work that way. It runs 100% better or
just run a 'local' terminal for the vm and work that way.

VM's used this way are great for emulating your production environment (most
configuration and settings) and on a 3-4gb system you can have 3-4 vm's
running concurrently for testing using multiple servers (i.e. db, static
media, and your django install) having a smaller (compared to production) but
more complex setup that you can find in a lot of situations.
