Installing Sabayon inside of Virtual Box on Mint [Solved]

Postby mcmillhj » Tue Jan 28, 2014 18:02

Hello,

It may be something very obvious that I missed since I am not familiar with Gentoo or Sabayon specifics, but I just downloaded the Saboyon 14.01 GNOME ISO to install in VirtualBox to see how I liked Sabayon.

The installation process went smoothly, and I encountered no errors. However, after the post-install reboot I didn't see my local user that I created during the install process. I only see a user called 'Sabayon', which didn't seem that normal since there is no point to ask for a username if it won't be created.

I verified that the user didn't exist on the system by checking for an entry /etc/passwd

Here are the VirtualBox configurations I used when installing Sabayon:

Code: Select all
Architecture : Gentoo (64 bit)
RAM          : 1 GB
CPUs         : 1
DISK         : 12 GB

Any thoughts/suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks.
Hunter.

Are you sure your VM isn't still booting the iso as opposed to the virtual hard drive?

This is one of those moments when I should have just walked away for 10 minutes and come back. Thanks, that was exactly what happened. I forgot to unmount the disk image.

Thanks.

No problem. More often than not it's the easiest things we overlook. Don't forget to mark this thread as Solved, if you don't mind.

Is there an option to mark as solved? (If so I must be overlooking it). Or should I just edit the post title to include [Solved]?

Sorry, I should have included this link:
viewtopic.php?f=86&t=17059

But yeah, basically edit the first post's title to end with [Solved]
