before upgrading virtualbox additions, one might need to uninstall the old version (this should actually happen automatically, when VBoxLinuxAdditions.run of new new version is run)
(actually this script will do it automatically for you, if you want to upgrade)
# run install script
if you can not find any (actually when new VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
# search for installed packages
dpkg -l|grep virtualbox
# delete installed packages aptitude remove virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 # reboot reboot # mount VirtualBox Additions iso through guy mkdir /virtualbox cp -rv /media/cdrom0 /virtualbox # run install script /virtualbox/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
