Description

Hi, I've installed Fedora 18 32bit guest into a Oracle VM Virtualbox running on a windows 7 host. Previously I've installed Fedora 16 as the host machine and everything was working fine. Now after installing Fedora 18 i tried to install virtual-guest addition but there is some issue. I guess its BUG.

I had followers all the procedures correctly to install the VirtualBoxGuestAdditions

I am attaching the logs.

Please do

  1. uninstall the 4.2.10 Additions (/opt/VBoxGuestAdditions/uninstall.sh as root)
  2. install the 4.2.12 Additions

If this still fails, please attach (use the 'Attach file' button!) the output of 'dmesg' from your Fedora 18 guest.

No further response so I assume this works now.
