Well, I think I give up for now. I spent quite a few hours over the last
couple of days trying to get gnome desktop working on bare-metal OI,
followed by virtualbox.
I would recommend installing OI desktop, not OI server. Because I too, tried
to get gnome working in OI server, to no avail. But if you install OI desktop,
it simply goes in, brainlessly, simple.
Found quite a few posts on
forums of people complaining that RDP with external auth doesn't work (or
Actually, it does work, and it works reliably, but the setup is very much not
straightforward. I'm likely to follow up on this later today, because as
coincidence would have it, this is on my to-do for today.
Please post your results, I'd like to know this.
I had two backup BEs, and I only tried the more recent one. Maybe the
older one would not hang. I have to say my perception of OI is that it
is a lot more fragile when it comes to things like this than Linux is.
I'm used to windows being 'the boy in the bubble', but not Unix
variants. I'd be more charitably inclined if it were error messages and
still comes up okay - a silent hang at bootload is frustrating to put it
mildly. I'm wondering if virtualbox ties in here somewhere? This was
the first time I rebooted this box since the vbox install. My previous
attempt to put gui+vbox on my old server install also hung at bootload,
but I assumed that was just stuff that hadn't been intended to be done
the way it was.
The final straw was when I
rebooted the OI server as part of cleaning things up, and... It hung.
Bummer. That might be some unsupported hardware for running OI.
