VirtualBox 4.3.2 Released

After a major release, it’s not surprising that a maintenance release follows hot on the heals, so VirtualBox 4.3.2 has been released. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places. The changes include a fix for the Mac OS X upgrade issue I mentioned recently.

I’m currently running VirtualBox 4.3.x on Fedora 19, Oracle Linux 6, OS X Mavericks and Windows 7 with no real dramas, but the fixes are a welcome addition.

Cheers

There is a nice write-up about the new features here.

So do I upgrade just before the Nordic Tour, or be boring and play safe until after I get back? :)

Oracle Database 12c Virtual RAC Installation on Oracle Linux 6

I finally got my server problems sorted out yesterday, so I was able to do a 12c virtual RAC installation. You can see what I did here:

The setup is pretty much the same as the 11gR2 setup. So there’s no real drama at all.

With the basic installation articles out of the way I can start having a play with the functionality.

Why is my VirtualBox VM not starting properly?

I’ve just wasted quite a bit of time trying to figure out why one of my VirtualBox VMs wasn’t starting properly, so I thought I would share the experience here in case anyone else has a similar issue…

It all started because I decided to fire up an OL6 VM, that I hadn’t used for a little while. It started up fine and I figured I should probably patch the OS and the VirtualBox Guest Additions. The first thing I did was a “yum update” to bring it up to OL6.4 and the the latest UEK2. Once that was complete I did a reboot and that is where the issue started. The VM booted in the normal fashion, but then hung at this point.

VirtualBox 4.2.10…

Were you thinking, “I’ve got nothing better to do this weekend than to download the latest version of VirtualBox and update the guest additions on all my VMs”? Well your luck is in!

Oracle have just released VirtualBox 4.2.10. The downloads and changelog are in the usual places.

Happy upgrading!
