HNS 7.1.50 isnt supposed to work with Ubuntu 15.04 and Virtualbox 5.0?

Tried installing the latest HNS I could locate (7.1.50) and that went fine, the GUI works but when I want to start the simulation I just get:

 

Failed to refresh comware version.

 

So is this fixable or is HNS not supposed to work with Ubuntu 15.04 (64-bit) and Virtualbox 5.0?

 

The config im trying to run is:

 

#device 1
device_id = 1

#device type is chassis
device_model = SIM1200

#board slot type and memory_size
board = slot 0 : SIM1201 : memory_size 1024

Latest similator (HCL 7.1.59) is only available for Windows  at the moment. It has a nice GNS3 like interface and works much easier than HNS.

I'm not sure if there will be an Ubuntu version in the future.

Hi,

 

I've got the same error "Failed to refresh comware version" on a Windows 8.1 fresh installation.

 

Any help ?

 

Thanks

HCL 7.1.59 not supported with virtual box 5.0.6.
