Please, Help With Linux Installation! by dljbd1(m): 2:28pm On Dec 09, 2012
I'm having a challenge installing Linux on my Oracle VM Virtual Box. I'm sure its just the same as installing the Linux directly as an OS. I later discovered its because my processor is AMD. Please, is there a way to bypass this constraint? Or do I have to change my entire system? Mehn, I pray not Ooo!

What arch is the linux iso? Is it 32bit or 64bit? Also, does your virtualbox support 64bit systems? Also, try this link - http://realtechtalk.com/VirtualBoxVBOX_Centos_55_Installation_Kernel_Freeze_Problem_NET_Registered_protocol_family_2_And_Solution-1027-articles

I hope that helps

Re: Please, Help With Linux Installation! by dljbd1(m): 1:00am On Dec 14, 2012
mehn...This is really stressful. I've not been able to solve it. Just collected an already-installed Linux from a friend, the same with the one am trying to install. This is now what am getting. I don't think my processor supports 64bits...AMD Turion(tm)X2 Dual Core Mobile RM-76 and my video card is ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. Please can you say?

Its not going past this.

Can you tell us if the OS you are running virtual-box on is 32bit or 64bit?
