Installing guest additions refers to a file that isnt installed (98vboxadd-xclient) -> fixed in SVN

Reported by: baf Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4 Keywords: guest additions 98vboxadd-xclient
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other

Description

Installing guest additions in an unsupported linux sometimes ends with a message

Could not set up the X Window VBoxClient service.
To start the VBoxClient service at log-in for a given user,
add the command 98vboxadd-xclient to the file .xinitrc in their home
directory.

This file 98... has been installed as /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all and not as 98vboxadd-xclient

Suggestion either fix the message in function install_x11_startup_app in routines.sh or install 98vboxadd-xclient somewhere and tell where it has been installed.
