Disclosure: When I do something I like to do it properly. This is why I am a complete idiot. Other people may not need these hints.
I am running Fedora 23.
I followed these instructions:
I had to downgrade to Virtual Box 5.0 from 5.1.
When I got to “vagrant up”, which will provision the virtual machine, the required download crashed on my poor connection. It does not resume. I took a few days to get it all downloaded with one lucky uninterrupted spell of internet connection.
To get vagrant to provision (download) all the way I had to add this to the “Vagrantfile” file
It goes after this line - “v.customize [“modifyvm”, :id, “–natdnshostresolver1”, “on”]”
