That's more or less what I did except I did manage to install guest
additions.  However, the problem did not reproduce for me on CentOS 8.

How many CPUs did you give to the VM?  It shouldn't matter since we're
doing multiprocessing here but... maybe...?  I was using 4G RAM and 4
CPUs in my guest.

The problem is that I can't seem to open connections from my host
machine to the guest machine: my host machine can't find the guests via
any IP address I can come up with.

And normally I don't have an SSH server running on my host machine,
since I don't need to log into it from anywhere and it's more secure
that way, and if I did start an SSH server I don't want to log in from
the guest machine to the host machine as it means I need to enter my
password etc. into the guest machine.

I will consider if it makes sense to start an SSH server temporarily
while I use these systems and create a separate account with a separate
password etc., to use to scp from the guest to the host.

I'll take a look at the info on Solaris that you sent and see if I can
get the compiler installed.
