Guest additions are not properly loaded on Linux guests with speedboot

On a Linux guest (Mandriva 2010.0 i586) under a Linux host (Mandriva 2010.0 x86_64), the speedboot feature of the guest does not properly load the guest additions: the mouse integration is not working after booting until the Xserver is restarted.

As a workaround it's simply enough to disable speedboot on the guest system by adding speedboot=no to the boot parameters.

The correct fix is to fix the runlevel in /etc/init.d/vboxadd -- change the line

# chkconfig: 35 30 70


# chkconfig: 357 30 70

Then execute

/sbin/chkconfig --add vboxadd

From now on your Mandriva guest should boot fine with activated speedboot. This problem with be fixed in the next VBox release.
