Virtual Machine software.
« on: September 03, 2012, 06:17:49 pm »
Evening all,

I am coming to the end of my patience with Virtualbox on my machine.  I have used VB for a long time to test security and play around with new distros but I always have a really annoying problem.

A lot of the time when I start up VB and try to start one of my machines it comes up with an error saying I need to reload the modules.  I do this but to no success, the same issue.  Some times there is no problem at all and my machines just start, or they will start after I reload the modules once.

This is something I've put up with for a long time and I've scoured the internet to try and find a solution.  I've also used different distros and reinstalled my machine a couple of times.

To be honest I haven't found a permenant solution so I think it's time to move on.

The point of this topic is to ask what Virtual Machine software everyone uses and if they could recommend one for me.  I have looked at others but I'd like your input.

Thank you all for your input!

I tend to use Vbox too, and I agree it tends to be a little unstable.

I've tried VMware player, which was very recource hungry whilst a VM loaded, but then ran OK.

I haven't got a CPU that supports hardware accelerated virtualisation .. but it you have, why not just give kvm/virt-manager a go ?

I tend to use Vbox as well, though I have dipped my feet in with VMware. Like Mark, found it to be a little resource hungry when loading a VM but then it ran fine.

I think what I might do is make a list of common CPU's that support HAV.
If you try to look through Windows, you can see what the person is doing.

Update :
VirtualBox still lives and in good shape,
Many of the problems have been fixed and it supports more OS now.
