Matthew, you did a magnificent job on this distribution. I will post MY REVIEW of it in this section once it becomes available.

Oh, my, that is just great. I want to start a dual boot Linux on flash project and I'll use this distro instead of default Manjaro :)

I'm a sucker for userfriendliness and effectiveness, so I'm looking forward in trying it.

Thank you Matthew Moore

AT this time I am unable to get the 64 or 32 bit working in virtualbox. I made an exhaustive effort to try to get them running properly. I will wait for the next release and try again.

Spatry: somebody else figured it out.  seems the vboxvideo.so driver file is missing.  I don't see that in the repos.  But that's what the problem is.

I used the MHWD to install driver and it would not work. Please find out if they installed from guest additions iso or manually installed it some other way.

Thus far, to install I had to put the number 3 in the boot options before allowing to run with default selection. Then key in "manjaro" as password at the prompt. once logged in run setup to start CLI installer. After installation MDM greeter appears and you can select fail safe terminal.

I Asked. Still waiting for a response.   I had a look at my image build script.   under xorg drivers  these lines were there.     so it should have worked.

Spatry:  i have been working on getting this sorted. i found the source of the problem. i just don't know how to fix it.  i rebuilt the image and added the Xorg  drivers for Vbox. and also tried adding the kernel Modules. the build puked out some errors seen below revealing the problem.  This is why it isn't working in V-box for you. Problem is. i don't know how to fix it.   :-\  The arch Wiki says to add these modules ( vboxguest, vboxsf and vboxvideo )   to /etc/rc.conf.  but that directory isn't in my build. so i'm not sure what to do. got any ideas?

installing linux313-virtualbox-guest...  [----------------------] 100%
===> You may want to load vboxguest, vboxsf and vboxvideo
depmod: ERROR: Module 'hci_vhci' has devname (vhci) but lacks major and minor information. Ignoring.
(698/852) installing linux313-virtualbox-host-...  [----------------------] 100%
===> You must load vboxdrv module before starting VirtualBox:
===> # modprobe vboxdrv
depmod: ERROR: Module 'hci_vhci' has devname (vhci) but lacks major and minor information. Ignoring.

Is there a way you can add it yourself or is it that the Manjaroiso does not permit you to do that?

I can manually go into the system folders and edit anything i need too once i build it.  i will just have to recreate the .ISO from those files after i change them.  But i don't know what to edit, what to add, or where the heck it's suppose to be in manjaro in order to fix it.  Also some people that have downloaded this spin say virtualbox works fine.  so i really don't know what to do to fix it.

That would be a good one to ask PhilM next time you see him in #manjaro on IRC! He is in there quite often.

ok Guys. All the .ISO's have been updated to include the Virtualbox Kernel Modules and Vbox Xorg drivers, and also a few more unrelated bug fixes.  i am still not sure if Vbox is working because i have no way to test it since my Computer doesn't have a CPU with Virtualization capability. So it would be a big help if somebody could test that out for me and let me know. I have done everything short of downgrading the kernel to fix this.  So let me know how these new .ISO's work out for you. This is my first Respin of Manjaro, and it's only a few days old. So bare with me and understand there are Kinks that need to be worked out as with any new software. But bare with me. I promise i will do what i can to fix any issues you guys might have. Rome wasn't built in a day.  ;)
