what i really dislike: Debian 2 setup goes like „this and that“ Debian 3 „now setup goes different“
it’s always like that… the ways that were tested and worked, do not work anymore in the next release, potentially invalidating all old recipes.
guys i know you are good and can do better 🙂 – ASAP (As Simple As Possible 🙂 and leave it that way… forever 🙂 = reliable)
anyway this was tested on:
host: Linux Debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt7-1 (2015-03-01) x86_64 GNU/Linux
guest: Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1 (2015-04-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux
modprobe vboxadd; # test if virtualbox additions are installed modprobe: FATAL: Module vboxadd not found. # this is what you get if they are not correctly installed apt-get install build-essential module-assistant; # install stuff m-a prepare; # do stuff apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r); # install linux header files # it should get mounted automatically if you have a GUI (gnome-core) installed if not: mkdir /media/cdrom0; # might allready exist mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0; # should help cp -R /media/cdrom0/* /VIRTUALBOX; # i like to copy all the stuff to a harddisk folder before executing sh /VIRTUALBOX/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run; # run stuff vim /var/log/vboxadd-install.log; # in case of error - check logs vim /var/log/VBoxGuestAdditions.log; # in case of error - check logs reboot; # and test if it's workin' now
DADA 🙂 ITS WORKIN‘ NO DIGITY
