32bit solaris guest : File Manager works

Postby stes » 7. Dec 2018, 10:13

Host platform: Solaris 11.4 (64bit) vbox 6.0.0r3

guest platform : Solaris 10 u10 32 bit with CDE desktop

Using "bridged network" adapter set to an etherstub virtual switch, network works fine. Installation of the "guest additions" also work fine. Also the "NAT network" tends to work fine on vbox 6.0.0r3 although I didn't test for this specific guest but in general this seems to work fine.

Interesting thing is that VirtualBox seems to correctly launch the 32bit VBoxService (on this 32bit OS) and very nice that the "Guest Control File Manager" works to copy files between host and guest (32 bit guest on 64 bit host).

note the i386 subdirectory it is correctly launching the i386 binary instead of the amd64 ELF64bit .

So the guest additions work fine and are still supporting the 32bit guest OS. So VirtualBox is doing the right thing here.

Also the Guest Control File Manager works with the 32bit os just fine. Nice work.

The guest installer has correctly placed a link under

/usr/dt/config/Xsession.d/1099.vboxclient

to
/opt/VirtualBoxAdditions/1099.vboxclient

on CDE login the file is correctly evaluated and the VBoxClient starts fine

Seems all good and working fine.
