VirtualBox Additions (Mint is guest OS)

Postby thomas175 on Thu May 08, 2008 8:42 pm

I have installed VirtualBox 1.6 on a XP computer and then installed Linux Mint KDE Light within the VirtualBox. In attempting the next step of installing VirtualBox Linux Additions I have run into a no such file error. Attached is a screen shot of the error that I get in the Terminal trying to open the VBOXADDITIONS file. What do I need to do to correct this?

Thanks, Thomas

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi Thomas,

The VirtualBox Additions are mounted on /media/cdrom0 looking at your screenshot,
so your cd command would be this:

Code: Select all
cd /media/cdrom0


Once in the directory you can issue the following command :

Code: Select all
 sudo sh VBoxLinuxAdditions.run


I hope this gets you going OK!

Mike.
