just try out the new Prometheus in Virtual Box. I use VB with the version 4.3.22 on OSX 10.9. For installation I use my standard setting as for other Linux distros. Netrunner starts up and finally gives me a black screen with a mouse pointer and thats all. Waiting for a while but nothing changed. Any ideas?
so this is happening after installing+rebooting or in LIVE mode?
Recently I only have make a test in LIVE mode, now I make a bootable usb-stick to see how it works on my Laptop.
Update: After a little bit of trying I was able to boot NR 15 in compatibility mode on VB. After showing the Desktop I start the installation but after the installer reached 100 % he crashed. So my new installation was not able to boot. I make now a new run.
Try enabling 3d acceleration in VBs settings before running the live iso.
3D support is enabled at VB. I have make a second run. The installer crashed again and my mouse pointer was not catched (at the first run he does). I have tried NR 15 from my usb-stick at a real machine. It shows a wonderful bootscreen, thank you for the new artwork.
At my laptop NR 15 runs without any problems (from usb-live). I don’t know why NR 15 makes such problems on VB.
Strange indeed. Working here fine in VirtualBox. Maybe it needs more graphics memory assigned.
Hmm, I have 64 MB graphic and 2048 MB memory space assigned in VirtualBox. For the other linux distros these settings are working without any problems.
On my virtual machine I have also set 64 MB. But I noticed 3d acceleration was turned off here. Maybe that works for you
Yeah 3d enabled does indeed stop with a white mouse cursor and a black screen. Tested just a second ago
Heureka! Now it also works at my VirtualBox. The 3D acceleration was the problem! Thank you for figuring these out.
But the installer crashed again! Did you have the same problem?
