Bento box does not boot and mount correctly in Debian 8 #1381
This was not a problem before with the old Ubuntu box.
Destroying the box and retrying produces the same error every time.
This is related to this issue, so this isn't SecureDrop's fault, but it is a somewhat annoying break in functionality for me (and others?).
Definitely caused by the mismatch of VirtualBox versions between host and guest. You mention you're running Debian 8 on your workstation—given the version of VirtualBox, looks like you're running Jessie. I've been running Stretch over here:
The 5.x series of VirtualBox handles the vagrant shared folder fine:
The develop docs for developers mention support platforms of Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian Stretch, but we should probably distill those recommendations into concrete versions of critical software such as VirtualBox.
Is bumping to Stretch (or Sid) a possibility for you, @heartsucker?

I'm going to call this closed because there's this work around.
And since you don't officially support my OS, I can't really complain. When I test out Stretch, I'll post back here in case someone else has this issue.
Nice! Of course, you'll need to do that every time you rebuild the development VM, but it's certainly less onerous than a distribution upgrade on your workstation. Thanks for sharing.
Already referenced this issue from #1208, to make sure the supported platforms are explicitly stated in the dev docs. Adding mention of that workaround for folks running Jessie may be worthwhile, as well.
