Guest Additions for Linux cannot be uninstalled -> fixed in SVN

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:

Host type: other

Description

Similar to bug #106 Guest Additions for Linux cannot be uninstalled.

This is quite serious problem since in some cases they can kill fully working X Server, and turn it's configuration into garbage.

For example, installing VBox 2.2.2 Guest Additions into RHEL 3 or RHEL 4 VMs turns their X server into non-usable garbage with huge resolution.

In this case I want to have ability to uninstall it at will.

OOps... I meant similar to bug #107.

I could not find uninstall feature in User's Manual and not via Guest Addition's "--help" parameter either. I presume it does not exist.

In VirtualBox 3.1, how do you uninstall Guest Additions from a Linux guest? Thanks.

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by frank

After you installed the 3.1 additions you can uninstall them by executing /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions*/uninstall.sh

Or running the installer with "uninstall" at the end of the command line.
