I followed the instructions to get the first_box going with lucid64, but never got the “VM booted…” message.
I’ve repeated this process several times, with the same result each time. The “vagrant up” process does not finish - I eventually kill it.
You’ll see below that I waited nearly 20 minutes before killing it in the session below.
I know you cover the guest additions warning message, but I don’t get far enough to do anything about that. I get an error for vagrant ssh, which I’ve also included below.
