VirtualBox 5.1.26

VirtualBox 5.1.26 has been released.

The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

I’ve done an installation on my work PC (Windows 7) and it worked fine. I probably won’t get to do it on macOS Sierra and Oracle Linux hosts until the weekend. Update: Worked fine on macOS Sierra and Oracle Linux 7 hosts too.

I’ve had some odd behaviour from a couple of VMs recently and I can’t tell if it’s a problem with the OS, VirtualBox, me or the combination of the three… I was secretly hoping this release would magically fix the issues, but it didn’t, so I guess I’m going to have to spend some time bottoming them out…

VirtualBox 5.1.20

VirtualBox 5.1.20 has been released!

The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

The installation on macOS Sierra and Oracle Linux 6 hosts went well and all seems to be working OK there.

I’m not 100% sure about the Windows 7 host though. The installation itself went fine, as did the installation of guest additions on a Linux VM running inside it. After a restart of the VM I attempted to do a yum update and the VM just seems to have died now. I can’t get more than a couple of commands out of it before it becomes unresponsive and has to be restarted. I think I’m going to have to remove and rebuild it. I don’t know if this was something I did, or something weird with VirtualBox.

That’s on my work PC and I’m not at work this week, so I was doing it over TeamViewer. I probably won’t have time to look at this again until next week. I’d be interested to know if anyone else has issues on Windows.

Happy upgrading.

VirtualBox 5.1.16

VirtualBox 5.1.16 has been released! 🙂

Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

I’ve done the installation on my Windows 7 desktop at work and an Oracle Linux 6 host at home. After my recent catastrophe with my MBP I’m nervous to touch it. 🙂 I’ll update the post once I’m brave enough to do that one.

Cheers

PS. Just did a 12.2 RAC installation on OL6 using VirtualBox 5.1.16. No errors. 🙂

PPS. It worked on macOS Sierra fine too.

VirtualBox 5.1.14

Now that you’ve broken all your New Year’s resolutions, you can console yourself by upgrading to VirtualBox 5.1.14. 🙂

Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

I’ve done the installation on my Windows 7 desktop at work. I’ll do an install on macOS and Oracle Linux 6 hosts some time soon and put an update on this post. 🙂

Update: The installation went fine on macOS Sierra and Oracle linux 6 hosts too.

VirtualBox 5.1.12

All I want for Christmas is VirtualBox 5.1.12…

Downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

It’s a maintenance release, containing lots of lovely bug fixes, mince pies and eggnog.

I’ve only done the installation on my Windows 7 desktop at work, which was fine. I’ll do the macOS and Oracle Linux 6 installs when I get home and update this post with the results. 🙂

Cheers

Update: The installation worked fine on macOS Sierra and Oracle Linux 6 hosts.
