Enable USBFS for Innotek Virtualbox

Postby martinfromdublin on Sun Apr 20, 2008 10:20 am

Hi, can anyone help me enable USBFS? I am trying out Innotek Vitualbox and so far have installed 2 guest systems, XP Home and Fedora Core 4 but in each there is no recognition of USB devices despite me enabling the USB controller option in the VirtualBox interface and installing the Guest Additions.

The VirtualBox forum suggests I enable USBFS and see if that resolved the issue but I've no idea how to do this, can anyone help a newbie out?


PS; can it be done without the use of command-line?

This is the post that takes you through it.
And yes you need the command line.
