Fedora Linux 23 Guest Additions Not Installing X Window System Drivers.

Description

I have installed Fedora Linux 23 (x86_64) as a guest in my VirtualBox 4.3.34 environment. When I installed the guest additions, I received this warning:

Warning: unknown version of the X Window System installed. Not installing X Window System drivers.

Fedora 23 uses xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.18.0-2.fc23.x86_64. I've attached the vboxadd-install.log and vboxadd-install-x11.log files.

I tried test build 4.3.35-104225 and was surprised to find VBoxGuestAdditions_4.3.33-103890.iso listed as the guest additions to use with it. Still, I tried and, unsurprisingly, it did not work.

This appears to be the same issue that was reported and fixed in VirtualBox 5.0.10 in Ticket 14797. The fix just needs back-ported to 4.3.z, please.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

The latest 4.3 Guest Additions (> revision 104270) which can be found here have the X.org 1.18 driver included. The fix will be included in the next 4.3.x maintenance release.
