###I decided to take the dive with the vm and it is slow … so slow
After leaving the browser for know how long finally the site went up, now that I have many object cached on the browser level, if i refresh the page it will take about two minutes for the page to load again
some background, I am running virtualbox and vagarant on host machine windows 8
on a side topic
Vagrant really need to get smarted when downloading assets and support resumeable downloads I had my box image download failed at 98% and a 200k download speed blah.
I followed the tutorial, and started the rails server
“bundle exec rails s”
tried my luck at the browser and all I got was blank page that is keep a loading status for ever
I looked at the ssh window and this is the last log from the request
-07-03T02:20:12.950428 #25269] INFO – : Completed 200 OK in 8690ms (Views: 8593.6ms | ActiveRecord: 26.0ms)
Image installed on external drive (usb3)
Bottom line, the virtualbox pulls the source of discourse from a shared folder (virtualbox feature)
which I assume is where the slowness is coming from, applying this fix did not help much
And i am still getting a blank page, Any idea why?
I have noticed this error in the log when first running “bundle exec rails s” startup
"failed to create symbolic link `/vagrant/public/plugins/emoji’: Protocol error"
So who is using the combination of vagrant and virtualbox successfully ?
The all idea of having this setup is for hassle free installation for developers/contributors to start with their feet on the ground.
It is there and we need to make effort to make sure it is actually working or not having it at all.
