VirtualBox Guest additions

I just installed Endeavour in a virtual box ( hosted by an another Linux OS ) ; it works fine exept that I can’t share folders with host system .
Impossible d’insérer le disque optique virtuel /home/kokovf/.config/VirtualBox/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.34.isodans la machine Endeavour20.
When I select " insert CD guest additions " I have the followinf error :


Could not mount the media/drive ‘/home/kokovf/.config/VirtualBox/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.2.34.iso’ (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED).

Code d’erreur : NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Composant : ConsoleWrap
Interface : IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}
Fonction appelée : IMachine {85cd948e-a71f-4289-281e-0ca7ad48cd89}


I have already two other OS in the virtual machine (Window & anarchy ) without this matter ; I would be happy for a little help .

Hi and welcome to EndeavourOS! :smile:

AFAIK Linus removed virtualbox filesystem (vboxsf) support recently from the newest kernels.
If I remember correctly, the reason was the problems with that filesystem.
Maybe they’ll put that support back, but I don’t know about any schedule.

@manuel, it will be resumed in kernel 5.6.

I could easily test it in a Lubuntu VM with mainline kernel rc1, but L.T. recently disabled the vboxsf module late in rc6 or so. So this doesn’t make sense at the moment.

@endko, really? Let me guess…Bionic L(ong) T(erm) S(leeping) as the host. At the first you should change to the 6.1 series (or kill Ubuntu, hrr). VMs are retained.

Both in German, but the command lines are always the same (and for the accompanying text, if necessary,

Current is 6.1.2, and I myself have been using only the current test builds for a long time (but that’s another matter).

Import via “insert CD guest additions” is never really worked before (the image isn’t there either). You do it differently, see linked blog posts!

The important thing is: No version mix!
