So... fresh instance of the cs50 2014 appliance (i.e. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS guest VM), running on Ubuntu 14.04 host OS, using VirtualBox. I've ran plenty of VMs on this machine before, so I'm pretty sure its not a matter of the hardware or other on the local machine.
The only thing I did prior to running
update50 was install the VirtualBox guest additions so that I had something more than a tiny window to work with. Rebooted the VM and opened up a new terminal to run
It's been running really slow - as in over two hours and its still stuck at 'Upgrading packages...'. Finally opted to kill it. Regular
Ctrl+c didn't work, had to look up the process id using
ps aux | grep update50 and kill it that way.
I've looked at various threads/posts, both here and on https://www.reddit.com/r/cs50/ ... not finding anything that quite seems to fit.
The network connection does work. I can ping google.com, I can ping reddit.com, and I can ping mirror.cs50.net.
I only have one working network connection - eth0 - which is using adapter #1 in VirtualBox. Nothing seems to be setup on adapter #2 / eth1. I have the warning 'missing network adapter' in lieu of the host-only network ip address i.e. 192.168.56.xxx. So it seems like
ip50 isn't working either.
I'd like to get this stuff sorted out before I find that I can't run
check50 when I need it down the road.
