Really ?

I was able to install Guest Additions on RHEL 5.3/x64 and openSUSE-11.1 x64 VMs.

As root: # sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions-amd64.sh

Or something like that... (typing from memory)

You need to explain more.

Host: Windows 7, x64, Core 2 Q6600, VBox 3.0.10.

comment:3 by Alexey Kuznetsov, 15 years ago

Be sure, i unable to do that.

After i ran VBoxLinuxAdditions-amd64.sh i got this error: (Invalid Guest Additions configuration found)

this error related to -x11 scrip, with wrong library search algorithm.

I think that this concerns 3.1 beta 1, not 3.0.10. It should be fixed in beta 2.

comment:7 by Alexey Kuznetsov, 15 years ago

same for BETA_3.

Here is no magic $ARACH variable, at least on Fedora 10.

You may need to use MATCHTYPE==x86_64 or HOSTTYPE==x86_64

comment:10 by Michael Thayer, 15 years ago

I think I have fixed this for real this time, I will grab a 64bit Fedora 12 to test.
