    Hi.

    Maybe someone know ;)

    I install android-x86_64-9.0-r2.iso, but there is no internet
    connection, no eth adapter, ifconfig?

    I try to connect with wired network, not Wi-Fi.

    My setup:
    Virtualbox 6.1.18 r142142
    Linux 2.3 / 3.x / 4.x (64-bit)
    Network: NAT PCnet-FAST III (Am79c973) - I try every adapter type,
    nothing works.

    How to resolve this?

    Internet search have alot solution, but nothing works!

    Thanks.

    [Network] By default, your installation of Android-x86 will be able to automatically connect to the internet. If not, you can try to enable
    WiFi in Settings/Network & Internet, and connect to showing VirtWifi. If
    you do not want to connect to the internet in VirtualBox, uncheck Enable Network Adapter under the Adapter 1 tab.

    I tried this software out and got bored of it pretty quickly.

    All I can remember about my attempt, is

    android-x86_64-9.0-r1.iso

    is the file I tested, and I attached this tag to the filename.
    I have no other notes about what happened :-)

    __for_phys_not_vbox

    That suggests something naughty happened :-)

    If the author of these "masterworks" thinks his product
    works in Vbox, there's the XML guest config file that
    would allow another user to reproduce what he had done
    in testing. That would allow everyone to enjoy success.

    What happens when you boot it live?

    A year ago Jesse Smith's DW review of 9.0 said:

    I want to say that I'm impressed that the Android-x86 team has been able to port Android to the x86 family of processors. The operating system is stable, works with my physical hardware (though not in VirtualBox) and runs quickly.

    He ran it live and he installed it to disk; but his VB 'install' but
    didn't work.

    To me, pretending in VB and pretending to x86 is one too many pretensions.
