Start the guest from complete normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you view the problem take place, then shut dvery own the guest from within the guest OS if possible. If not possible, cshed the classiccomputers.info home window for the guest through the Power Off option set.Right-click the guest in the main classiccomputers.info window"s guest list, choose Sexactly how Log. Save the far left tab"s log, zip it, and also short article the zip file, using the forum"s Upload Attachment tab.

One thought: If tbelow are greyed-out entry in the display entries in the View food selection, this ususally means that the Guest Additions weren"t fully installed and tbelow need to have been warning message in the Ubuntu Terminal app along the lines of "This mechanism is not presently put up to build kernel modules" via even more guidance on what needs to be done. It"s a Linux point you simply need to gain used to!

I think Guest Additions are set up effectively. Indeed, setting display size to 1920x1200 was only feasible after installing Guest Additions (1024x768 before). So, they seem to occupational somejust how.I have the right to start classiccomputers.info using console. Tbelow is no output on stdout/stderr. Wright here to discover your warning messages?
