Re: Italian Mirrors seems offline.

Yes, sabayonino, I also noticed this, and I did not want to raise the obvious question, but I will raise it now. I have grown extremely fond of Sabayon and what I write below is meant with the utmost respect. Given that we have gone well over one month without a weekly update and the Italian mirrors...

Re: Italian Mirrors seems offline.

"ping" and "traceroute" indicate that the hosts are up.

Re: VirtualBox Problems [Solved]

sabayonino, let me ask this question another way. Are you implying that there is no need for installing guest additions from an ISO image, which is what was always required before?

I obtained the ISO image from https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.6/VBoxGuestAdditions_6.1.6.iso. I then executed mkdir -p /opt/VirtualBox/additions. I then copied the VBoxGuestAddit...

Re: VirtualBox Problems

Hi again, sabayonino. I have reinstalled virtualbox, including modules and guest additions. In my original post on the subject, I reported the following that virtualbox placed in a popup: "The specific complaint is presented in a "VirtualBox - Warning" popup which states "The image file '/opt/Virtua...
