Warning message during booting and shutdown in MX17

#1 Postby Atlanelan » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:12 am

When starting and shutting down MX17, in between lines of scrolling texts Im always seeing one line of text with an ORANGE coloured warning that says
"[WARN]Virtualbox additions disabled,not in a virtual box[warning]".
What this warning means? I do not install or use any virtual boxes.
Sys Info:MX17-32b, Intel Dual core Pentium,Nvidia GT218.

it means just what it says, that you aren't in a virtualbox, so the virtualbox drivers are not being loaded. "Warn" is a little bogus here. its more [INFO]. Our iso does contain those drivers by default.

You're fine, no issues. That said, its fine on a installed system to remove the virtualbox-guest-dkms stuff if you want to.

I totally understand. That particular "warning" comes from upstream Oracle.

I get many warnings also. It's nothing to worry about. I look at them as decoration. MX Linux boots up and shuts down fine.
