Stuck on Laravel Basics, reason being Vagrant not working properly
I use Linux Xubuntu 14.04 and I configured everything that I literally could. But when I run Vagrant using
it freezes on:
default: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes... default: SSH address: 127.0.0.1:2222 default: SSH username: vagrant default: SSH auth method: private key default: Error: Connection timeout. Retrying... default: Error: Connection timeout. Retrying... default: Error: Connection timeout. Retrying... default: Error: Connection timeout. Retrying... default: Error: Connection timeout. Retrying...
Keeps retrying until it times out.
How can I fix it? I can imagine it could be a problem of my BIOS not having virtualization enabled, but I cannot do that inside my BIOS, when i ran
sudo kvm-ok it simply gave me:
```INFO: Your CPU does not support KVM extensions KVM acceleration can NOT be used
Would that be the possible reason of Vagrant not working? If so, what is this tutorial made totally uncompatible to different setups, now I'm pretty muich in a dead end, and what, forced to buy a new PC setting up a new dev environment? Huh **Edit: Couldn't get that to work, had to switch the PCs to the one with CPU actually supporting VT-x, and therefore virtualization. For future reference, PLEASE make me, and every other user, aware that this set up would work only with new/newer machines that were bought preferably after 2012, and that fully support VT-x in a CPUwise way. That information is non-existent during the whole tutorial, and I believe that there should be an alternative. You needn't Vagrant/Homestead to set up a normal apache2 virtual host with Laravel on it.**
