[SOLVED] error booting new iso in vm

Hi there,

wanted to try the new runnit based iso in an oracle vm.
After "Loading Grub..." I get

Code: [Select]
error: invalid font file: missing some required data.
Out of range pointer 0x400
Aborted. Press any key to exit._

Any idea anyone how to fix?

greets

What's' the sha256sum of your downloaded ISO? You might need to re-download.
Code: [Select]
% sha256sum artix-lxqt-runit-20181008-x86_64.iso
879f4c3df0d0bf03bb5d162aa379e32f8f50de7e937e25075b3d60c9ba1993a2  artix-lxqt-runit-20181008-x86_64.iso

Hi nous,

thank you for your answer. Was very busy last days so apologize late answer.
I always do check the checksums of my downloads. It´s the correct one.

Code: [Select]
sha256sum artix-lxqt-runit-20181008-x86_64.iso
879f4c3df0d0bf03bb5d162aa379e32f8f50de7e937e25075b3d60c9ba1993a2  artix-lxqt-runit-20181008-x86_64.iso


edit:

same behaivor with openrc version

voidlinux
kernel 4.18
virtualbox 5.2.18 r123745

Don´t have much time now so will try other kernels later this day.

That's indeed very strange, the first place @artoo and I tested the ISOs in was Virtualbox (I'm on 5.2.18-r123745 too). Does the ISO boot on real hardware if you dd it on a USB stick? Obviously, it won't touch your hard disk if you don't launch the installer.

This looks much like a vbox issue.

The grub on iso uses unifont, same font grub uses if installed on the system.

Really strange thing. It´s working on bare metal.
It´s all the same with 4.18, 4.17 and 4.14.

If I got the time i´ll install it on a T400 today.

edit: solved by vbox update to 5.2.20 r125587
