VirtualBox USB not working (Debian)

March 11, 2008 – 4:34 pm by Adnan Hodzic


Ok, why do I like, VirtualBox, well because it's fast, stable, free (duh). But there is one problem that is just killing me. And few days I found a solution for the same. 1. Add usbfs group # groupadd usbfs 2. Add your ass to that same group # usermod -a usbfs username 3. vim /etc/fstab 4. Add // # my vbox usb support none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=500,devmode=664 0 0 5. VBoxManage list usbhost 6. Restart the system Please note that devgid=500 (in my case its 500) in your case it's probably different, it's the number of your vboxusers group ... This work, this adds usb support to your VirtualBox, but not the one I wanted, so again I had to move back to VMware Workstation. But since just recently SUN acquired VirtualBox, I'll be watching its development progress.

FoolControl forum

You wanted you, you got it :) After I really let the users/readers/visitors that is you decide if you want forum or not, after posting a poll, you voted 64% yes. To be honest with you, I wanted forum too, I'm actually lacking places I can have any sort of "intellectual" dicussion/talk. Or any other dicussion in global. This poll has been posted here for almost a month, since I saw you'll (we'll) most prolly end up having a forum I started working on it. This is not my first or second, but one of in many forum implentations, and I'm so happy with the results that I think it's one of the best ones so far. I really put a lot of "love" into it. And again led by "simplicy is divine" this is what I came up with it. Based on SMF it's most prolly one of the safest and fastest ...

Update

Here's a quick update just so you think I'm not doing anything. A week ago I got my Sony Ericsson W960i it's a complete beast so I'm still trying to tame it :)  I'll post a video of it and it's capabilites and features in shortest period. Second hosting has been upgraded, so lots of space, and from now on emails you get here, will be 1gb. Besides that all, I'm working on  putting up the forum, because as I see it, you wanted forum so you'll get it :) There, little something, so you know what's/something's happening ;)

Death Metal

Anyways, after seeing numerous YouTube to whatever comments something along the line "do all dreadlock guy have to listen to this death metal emo shit" or something very similiar to that. This morning I got a shout on last.fm that I just couldn't go by. I won't releaved this guys personal data but what he said in my shoutbox is: " do you ever listen to happy music?" What's happy music? Hm, ok let's see what is he listening to CKY and Placebo ... yea. What is CKY? All I know if it wasn't for Bam Margera this band wouldn't see the daylight. Second Placebo ... I seriously won't comment this. Now, you can turn down and mock emo, I don't give a shit about them, but don't get me involved. I really think that I'm a nice guy, but I wasn't always ...

Ok so here's why I haven't talked about anything for last 3+ weeks. I usually bring my notebook to university, those who don't know what linux really is, come up and wanna see how it all actually looks like. Of course it's all great comments (which are usually because of the looks ... compiz-fusion) but I got few bad ones (at least in my book they are bad ones) some of them who see it booting, asked me does it need to boot that long everytime? Of course, you tell them it's mostly because it has bunch of stuff on it, along the "normal" system web server/apache and database server/mysql will come up as well. But just three weeks ago after getting my second "why does it take so long too boot" ... that was it, I had to do something. And besides that, I'd just like to add that, back on ...
