Version: VirtualBox 4.1.4 Keywords: shared folder support module
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


This is for a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install (64-bits) (kernel 3.2.0-23-generic):

Uncompressing VirtualBox 4.1.4 Guest Additions for Linux......... VirtualBox Guest Additions installer add_symlink: link file /usr/src/vboxguest-4.1.4 already exists Removing existing VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules ...done. Removing existing VirtualBox non-DKMS kernel modules ...done. Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason.

Building the main Guest Additions module ...done. Building the shared folder support module! (Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong) Doing non-kernel setup of the Guest Additions ...done.

You may need to restart the hal service and the Window System (or just restart the guest system) to enable the Guest Additions.

The aforementioned log file ends with:

I will now try to upgrade my Virtual Box to see if this goes away, as there are similar bug reports (regarding OpenGL build failure, though).
