#StackBounty: #gitlab #gitlab-ci #gitlab-ci-runner How to set up a Gitlab-runner using VirtualBox executor

Bounty: 50

I’m trying to set up a Gitlab specific runner using VirtualBox as an executor.

I’m using macOS 10.15.5 and here’s what I did:

  • Run gitlab-runner register and use URL and token shown in Settings -> CI/CD
  • Choose virtualbox for executor
  • Run gitlab-runner start

Then I can see the activated Runner in Settings -> CI/CD in my Gitlab project.

But if I commit the .gitlab-ci.yml file, the runner pipeline fails with the following error:

Preparing the "virtualbox" executor
ERROR: Job failed (system failure): exec: "vboxmanage": executable file not found in $PATH

I tried everything to fix this based on Google search, but could not fix this.

How can I fix this?
