[Resolved] lubuntu on highsierra - display

Postby Julian195 » 29. Mar 2019, 12:52

Hello together,

I tried lubuntu in a vm.
Host system is a macbookpro8.1 with highsierra 2.7gh quadcore with 16gb ram and 500gb ssd

at the First Boot everything looks good - the system ask my for several settings- everything fine
at the Secend boot i just see stripes after the boot screen.

I my opinion the problem is caused by the graphik driver.
is there a way to update the driver bevore the graphik interface is shown?

Any other solutions?

thanks
Julian

Which version of VirtualBox have you installed? If it is the 6.0.x series then shutdown the guest, change the vGPU to VBoxVGA and restart the guest. If that doesn't fix the problem then zip the VBox.log from the guest and attach it here so we can take a look.

Andy, you've reached the next level of nirvana; diagnosis without any evidence! :D

BTW, moving to "Linux Guests" from "OSX Hosts"...
