I gave the VM 2GB of memory and gave it enough HD space. It took about and hour to complete the installation. And yes there was some activity showing in the lower right of the VB window. Also, I noticed a few issues after the installation was done.

1. Booting takes a very long time to complete. I have Bodhi Linux on a VM and it is way faster than VL.
2. I'm having issues with the keyboard. I start typing and it types about 4 characters and then there is nothing. I have to wait a couple of seconds and try typing again. I tried resetting the keyboard a couple of times but it didn't work. I also tried to reset the locale and it didn't fixed the issue.
3. The response time is really bad. I update the software and it took a while to complete the installation. I also tried installing the VB Guest Additions and it also took forever to install. The response time is very slow even though I gave the VM enough memory and enough HD to use.

I'm going to download and install the standard edition and give it a shot. I will let you know if I encounter the same issues.

I started the installation of VL 7.2 Beta 32bit light version on my laptop under virtualbox and I for whatever reason it is taking forever to complete the installation. I pause the installation after an hour as I need it to go to bed. Is there any reason why the installation is taking forever on a virtual machine? I have installed other distros and the installation has been pretty fast. I wonder if the issue is just with VB. I just thought I mentioned this in case you guys need to do something about it.

The virtual machine needs at least 256 MB of RAM, and 5+ GB of disk space.

When the installation stalls, does the VM show any activity on the optical drive and hard drive indicators in the lower right of the VB window?

It is possible that the Opera browser saved it under a different name.

KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso in download locations are about 4.2G, so that is probably the file you are seeing.

Remember the partition needs to be mounted before you can list files.

What does command "ls -al" show?

BonJOUR!
 
Tried to test knoppix with apacher 16G pendrive,which was made 2 partitions (one in ntfs, another in XFS),downloaded to /dev/sdb5(xfs)  with opera bruiser,
once it was finished,

the file name
"KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso" can't be shown  and displayed at all under console at all.....

using partition tool and other disk tool  found that /dev/sdb5 was occupied with big 4.2G file, but file name can't shown at all....

any special commands available to sort out missing file name? currently, with ls command,"KNOPPIX_V7.6.1DVD-2016-01-16-EN.iso" can't be listed at all under console  although /dev/sdb5 was occupied with this knoppix dvd iso already

Using VB version 5.1.4 with a standard vbox (1gig ram, 12 gig hd ) the VL-7.2-light B1 iso from OSL booted in the voptical drive and using the automatic option on the graphical installer, installed light 7.2 b1 in about 10 or so mins, reboot took a min or so to desktop. looks fine to me.
 I had to adjust the display to show the full desktop as the virtual window was not showing the icebar. On this machine (acer e5) the qualcomm atheros qca9377 wireless was not detected, but not a surprise. I think linux mint has included it in their current offering if you want wireless out of box for that (qca9377). (edit..appears on board wireless does not work in virtualbox, you need a usb wireless stick for that..lal)
Perhaps checking the iso and or vb settings would help the previous poster. or adding addition information if assistance was desired.

I am not sure, but changing the icon theme solves it and all icon themes seem to work.

I am Scot and I have been around Linux for years but, quite recently, I began to install and use it.
I wanted something resembled xp but, was not xp.  Thus far, I really like having Vector 6 and 7.
I took on a dual install for a while.  Then, I tried out several flavors on a desktop and and OLD laptop.  So far, it's been a great adventure!  I feel that Linux is finally becoming less scary for us newbs.  I think I am going to try another dual install with xp and deepin.
The only things I am having any trouble with are 1-finding a good camera for the webcam. 
2-figuring out how to connect my laptop to the internet.  The desktops have worked fine!
Aside from that, it seems to be going well!  Thanks for having me aboard!
Namaste'
Scot
