I was trying to set up the NRP on a VirtualBox guest running Ubuntu 16.04 on an OSX host. I followed all the steps but gzserver keeps crashing (Segmentation fault). Examining the core file points towards that some openGL error. Googling around for "Gazebo" and "VirtualBox" brings up quite a few posts saying that Gazebo cannot possibly run in a VirtualBox Ubuntu guest due to limitations of the graphics driver provided. I have raised a related issue on bitbucket: https://bitbucket.org/hbpneurorobotics/neurorobotics-platform/issues/12/add-a-warning-to-the-installation-notes
Has anyone had a similar problem?
Try using VMWare Player, it's typically much better suited for anything OpenGL & Virtual.
Hi @mschmuker,the current virtual box has issues sharing the hardware graphic interface to the ubuntu guest.I tried different setups, and I couldn't get the NRP to run with VirtualBox.I have OSX too and I use VM Ware fusion and it works alright.
Thanks @rhostett and @camilo for the info, good to know that it works with VMware. I'll try that, then.
