1. installed windows 10 on dell optiplex 3050. 2. installed virtualbox. 3. installed debian 10 with desktop. 4. installed extra packages as per manual. 5. added debian-flat.vmdk and built
00:59
it loads past PXE boot and starts to load debian however it cannot seem to find the NIC
01:00

01:11
could it be i had the NIC in NAT mode on VirtualBox

Aborting ltsp
03:21
ok, ubuntu 18.04 works, maybe 20.04 is too new...

<alkisg>
Willo: nah, I'm on 20.04, it works fine. Do you still have it?
03:47
Or did you remove it?
03:48
Did you install a VM in efi mode? It's best to use BIOS mode.
04:22
<Willo>
i can always install again
04:23
<alkisg>
Willo: I'll be around for a few hours, so if you want help, now is a good time :)
04:25
<Willo>
thanks alkisg, much appreciated, i am installing a fresh 20.04 in VirtualBox now..
04:26
where is the efi mode in virtualbox, running it on windows
04:27
found it
04:28
so 20.04 needs that i guess, am installing now
04:28
<alkisg>
I haven't seen virtualbox proposing uefi mode by default in any host/guest combination
04:29
It's strange that it's proposing uefi to you
04:29
Willo: to be clear, we do NOT want uefi mode
04:35
<Willo>
oh,, it was disabled
04:36
i enabled, the boot screen looked different for ubuntu, had another logo above it
04:37
wasnt on by default, i enabled it, i mis-read your message
04:38
<alkisg>
(06:03:47 AM) Willo: Running: mount -t vfat -o ro /dev/loop0p1 /tmp/tmp.hBZSBeAZ9q/tmpfs/0/looproot
04:39
This vfat there, indicates an UEFI mode, which is what caused the issue
04:39
As the kernel isn't available in the first mountable partition
04:40
<Willo>
ok, let me check settings again now, just waiting for hdd to be created
04:41
so in "virtualbox > system"
04:41
enable i/o apic: on
04:41
enable efi (speical osses only): off
04:41
hardware clock in utc time: on
04:42
<alkisg>
That's fine then
04:42
<Willo>
that is only 3 options
04:42
should i proceed to build it?
04:42
only change i am doing then i turning network to bridge
04:42
<alkisg>
(07:41:43 AM) Willo: enable efi (speical osses only): off ==> was that off when you installed ubuntu 20.04, or did you put it off after installation?
04:42
Networking doesn't matter, you can leave it to NAT
04:43
Proceed to build it
04:43
<Willo>
i am doing a fresh machine now
04:43
i am not sure what it was on when it failed, i don't remember changing it
04:43
<alkisg>
I didn't understand something though. Your host is Windows, your guest is Ubuntu, OK, but where are you going to run `ltsp image` from? Aren't you going to run it from inside virtualbox?
05:06
<Willo>
i have a ubuntu box on unraid
05:06
it is the LTSP server
05:07
reason why i building on the windows box, is i have 2 optiplex 3050, so i was building on one and testing on the other
05:07
can we use unraid VM images with LTSP, or must they be VirtualBox images?
05:07
<alkisg>
I don't know what unraid is
05:07
If it has flat images, they can be used
05:07
<Willo>
well noted
05:08
was going to try once i get 20.04 working
05:08
is it better i run virtual box on a linux box?
05:08
<alkisg>
It doesn't matter at all
05:09
<Willo>
well noted, ok will try without the efi like you suggested and see how goes
05:12
i have to head, heaps tired, will be on again later today
05:12
thank you for the pointers
05:12
