View Full Version : 9.10 to 10.4 upgrade breaks vms
April 29th, 2010, 10:14 AM
Reproduced under both VMware 7.0 and VirtualBox: Upgrading a 9.10 virtual guest to 10.4 using update-manager -d upgrades, reboots and presents you with a login screen that doesn't take keyboard input, and the on-screen keyboard consistently crashes if you try to bring it up through UAP.

You may have to update vmware and virtualbox. Ubuntu 10.04 doesnt come with hald by default and those VMs assume its present. If you can boot in recovery mode, you can try starting (and I think first installing) hald as a workaround.

I figured it was probably the vm tools needing to be reinstalled, but the real clincher is that the on-screen keyboard tool keeps crashing.
After a few reboots, I finally got the OSK to work, so at least I can now take a snapshot of the machine beyond the login screen :)

Probably a good idea to make linux-virtual require the hald package?

I should mention: The problem is only the login screen; if you can get logged in (by using the OSK), everything else works fine.
Also, a clean 10.4 install works fine in both cases.
