Description

Hi,

When I try and install the Guest Additions on Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop Beta I get the following error when using VirtualBox 4.1.22

I have a Windows 7 Host.

Warning: unsupported pre-release version of X.Org Server installed. Not installing the X.Org drivers.

Can you help?

Many thanks

Peter Jones

  • Priority changed from major to minor

Ubuntu 12.10 is not yet released. We will add support for X.org server 1.13 soon.

Distros are starting to roll out 1.13, ArchLinux did it yesterday. This is still an issue in 4.2.0 and prevents running the xorg server.

I know.  Here is a test build for desperate users :) The upcoming 4.2.2 release will contain these fixes.
