Hey,

 

I recently downloaded the ISO for Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon.

 

I heard nothing but good things about this distro and after using OpenSuSe and enjoying it I thought I'd hop over to mint. 

 

Anyway, I thought I'd try it on VM Virtualbox before actually using it on my spare laptop. I came across a problem where I had to enable PAE but that was quickly fixed.

 

Now I got a new problem.

Intel_rapl: no valid rapl domains found in the package 0alized - upgrade bios or use force_addr=0xaddr

This pops up then the screen goes black and then nothing. No install.

 

What is this?

 

 

Thanks,

Yeah I read through that and couldn't find anything. 

 

It may have something to do with VirtualBox

Bios Virtualization enabled?

Enable Virtualization in the BIOS

Have you tried the disk on another PC?

I haven't no.

 

But the Bios virtualization shouldn't be a problem as I've run OpenSuSe on this desktop before

Any of this help.

Edit

 

32 bit or 64 bit? The Linux mint you are trying to install? It may have something to do with it,  I may be wrong on that.

I recall the same message appearing when I installed Lubuntu 14.04 x86 in VirtualBox on a MacBook (Core 2 Duo running OSX Lion).  In that instance it wasn't fatal, it eventually loaded up the live desktop and installed OK, but it still shows the same message each time Lubuntu starts up. It also seems very slow on this particular machine despite allocating extra RAM etc..

 

I also put the same OS, Lubuntu 14.04 x86, in a VM on my own desktop PC, this time using VMWare Player under Windows, and that works without hitch, it runs absolutely fine. I generally prefer VMWare over VirtualBox..

upgrade bios or use force_addr=0xaddr

 

I believe it is telling you how to fix it. I think 'force_addr=0xaddr' is a boot option you need to put in at the very start of the boot process (last screen before linux takes over). For more help with this see the distos support forum url=http://forums.linuxmint.com/.

A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched.  If you must worry about viruses  on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.

I've seen that error many times when running Linux OS's via VirtualBox, never bothered with trying to fix the issue, the OS's ran fine anyway.

 

Once it's installed on the computer, it won't show the error again.

 

Darktune, you should be fine, I've ran Linux Mint for 5 straight years now w/out a problem. Though I run the Mate version, the Cinnamon was buggy on the computers I ran it on, sometimes even in VirtualBox. Go ahead & try it since you've downloaded it, but if you have troubles, Mate is more mature & stable.

 

Good Luck with Linux Mint 17! You won't have to be concerned about malware on that install.
