Hi,

I have a thinkpad w520 installed with Windows 10(64bit) as Host OS, I am able to run Debian Linux(64bit) as VM in Virtual Box, but when I downloaded QuickStartCHD5.7 and trying to boot it up in Virtual Box it got following error.

init: prefdm main porcess ended

init: prefdm respawning too fast, stopped

Could anyone please tell me how could I solve the problem?

Hi @JOhnnyW, sorry to see you are having issues. I noticed that you also posted a comment to the quickstart VM installation article but I want to confirm, did any of the common issues in the article apply here?

 

While mulling over your issue I found another common issue to add to the article from the Quickstart download page.

 

Some users have reported problems running CentOS 6.4 in VirtualBox. If a kernel panic occurs while the VirtualBox VM is booting, you can try working around this problem by opening the Settings > System > Motherboard tab, and selecting ICH9 instead of PIIX3 for the chip set. If you have not already done so, you must also enable I/O APIC on the same tab.

SHA1 for VirtualBox image: 1309591109ebd9b1e44c89bd064b12d8b00feeb6

 

I'm not sure if it apply to your situation but is worth a look. 🙂

Hi @cjervis thanks for your solution, I tried it just now.

 

There isn't any other common issue apply to my case.

1. Virtualization was enabled in the BIOS, I am able to run other VM on host OS.
2. I never have KVM installed on host OS, the amount of RAM set to 8GB for the VM(CentOS 6.7) since Host OS installed 16 GB RAM
3. The host OS is Winodw 10 Professional 64bit, version of installed Virtul box is 5.0.20

 

switched chipset to ICH9 from PIIX3 just now and  I/O APIC is also enabled as a default option,but got no luck, 😞

Please let me know if you need any other information or you know there is any other solution to solve the issue, thanks a lot.

I'm not an expert here but the only other thing I can think of is a corrupted file. Did you use a download manager when downloading the quick start VM?

I downloaded it with a software which is similar with flashget, the size of downloaded zip
file(cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.7.0-0-virtualbox.zip) is 4.88 GB
(5,250,064,384 bytes)

Perhaps @Sean will have a tip to share on this one.

I'm not sure I've seen this particular problem before, however I'd suggest
comparing the SHA-1 hashes to be sure it's not compromised. The hashes can
be found when you download the file. For the 5.7.0-0 VirtualBox image
it's 1309591109ebd9b1e44c89bd064b12d8b00feeb6. My copy of the file matches
and is slightly smaller than yours, so unless there's a difference in how
file sizes are reported on different operating systems, I would suspect
your download is corrupted. As Cy said, we do recommend using a download
manager. Browsers tend to have inferior support for recovering from
problems during the download, and you see that more often on large files
like this.

Yes, I can see the hash for downloaded file is: 1309591109ebd9b1e44c89bd064b12d8b00feeb6, it's same with the one when I downloaed it.

Obviously, the one(4.88 GB - 5,250,064,384 bytes) I was looking at is "size on disk", you mentioned the size of your copy is slightly smaller than mine on your disk, are you looking at value of "size"? .

I have the same problem and I've never used VMWare.

 

Doen VMWare run in a subordinated role (within) VirtualBox ?
