Trident 18/12 RC2 in VM - 'stdarg.h' file not found
#22

Tried it twice, it only worked once.

good try

Installed from Trident-18.12-PRERELEASE2-x64-20181219.iso in a VirtualBox running on Windows7 over a VM that had Trident-RC3-x64-20181110.iso installed.

  • Installer OK (as BE)
  • Boot OK
  • Was able to install via shell and use it for a quick ride

bad try

Installed from Trident-18.12-PRERELEASE2-x64-20181219.iso in a VirtualBox running on Windows7 over a VM that had TrueOS Desktop 18.03 (TrueOS-Desktop-18.03-x64-DVD.iso) installed.

  • Installer OK (as BE)
  • Book fails; it stops after the message Starting webcamd. ... [ ok ]
  • Can not change to terminal via CTRL + ALT + F2 (or any other function key)
  • System reacts to AHCI shutdown
  • System reacts to added and removed devices (e.g., adding/removing webcam)
  • Only one BE exists, the TrueOS 18.03 BEs are gone (at least in the boot menu) - is my VM bricked?

Same install ISO, same Windows7 “host”, same VirtualBox version.


#23
boot single-user, run /usr/bin/sh
# zfs list -r

Is the 18.03 BE still there?

Yes, it is still there. Your answer pointed me in the right direction; now I could do a

mount -u -o rw /
beadm activate <name_of_precious_be>
shutdown -r now

Thank you!
