Minix 3 on VirtualBox 2.0.2[edit | edit source]

Preparation[edit | edit source]

After you successfully installed VirtualBox on a Linux Host system make sure the VirtualBox kernel modules are properly loaded:

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

If you intend to install a minix3 system from a cdrom then make sure the user belongs to the right groups:

ls -l /dev/hdc

brw-r------ root disk 22, 0 22. Sep 21:50 /dev/hdc

If not add your VirtualBox user to the appropriate group: (e.g. disk)

usermod -a -G disk user

The VirtualBox should be able to mount /cdroms

either edit /etc/fstab or type as root visudo and give the privileges:

sudo mount /dev/hdc /cdrom

sudo mount /dev/hdc/cdrom/code>
