CentOS Server in Virtualbox

Mon, Jan 3, 2011 One-minute read

I just installed a CentOS Server in Virtualbox, so I can work with a Red Hat based distribution. Until now I only used Debian based systems and now I decided to to broaden my mind. šŸ˜‰

I had a little problem with the installation, as the loading stopped at NET: Registered protocol family 2.

The solution is to enable IO APIC for the guest in the settings.

If you want more information, here is the bug report I found: http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/5423

Now Iā€™m going to play around a little bit to get used to it.
