Debian HURD is not booting after install in Virtual Box VM
I'm trying to install HURD into a Virtual Box VM on Windows. I've run
through the process three times with the following HURD options:
* Desktop Environment (GNOME), SSH Server, System Utilities
* Desktop Environment (MATE), SSH Server, System Utilities
* SSH Server, System Utilities (no desktop environment )
Each of the installs complete successfully, including fetching latest
packages from a mirror. However the first boot after install hangs
just after the ISC code/DHCP code attempts to do its thing. Looking at
my DHCP server I don't see the hostname registered with an address, so
I'm guessing that's about where the problem lies.
There's nothing special about Virtual Box on this machine. It has
about 45 VMs, including Debian 6 through 8 in both 32-bit and 64-bit
flavors. None of the VMs have a problem.
The HURD ISO was downloaded from
It is named debian-hurd-2017-i386-DVD-1.iso and dated 2017-06-13. The
installer updated the installation during install and I have no idea
of what was pulled in.
It would be helpful if someone would look at the issue.
Thanks in advance.
