Oracle VM: Unable to load X Server inside a Guest VM (Doc ID 2066952.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 28, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64


When running a Linux Guest on Oracle VM or any  virtualization environment it is possible that X server might not start leading to no GUI interface and only showing a black screen.


Most common is VM migration from one setup to another. 

Ex, From VMWare to Oracle VM
