Ticket #6638 (closed defect: invalid)
Guest Additions don't work on guest Debian Squeeze
|Reported by:||paulchany||Owned by:|
I have installed Debian GNU/Linux Lenny i686 as host and on VirtualBox version 3.1.6 Debian Squeeze i686 as guest.
I have installed Guest Additions on Squeeze but don't works.
I followed these steps to get installed Guest Additions on Squeeze:
$ su -
# mount /media/cdrom
# cd /media/cdrom
# sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run
This does run without any errors.
Here is the output of installation process from xterm window on guest Debian Squeeze:
root@debian:/media/cdrom# sh VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 3.1.6 Guest Additions for Linux........
VirtualBox Guest Additions installer
Removing installed version of VirtualBox Guest Additions...
Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules
Building the main Guest Additions module ...done.
Building the shared folder support module ...done.
Building the OpenGL support module ...done.
Doing non-kernel setup of the Guest Additions ...done.
You should restart your guest to make sure the new modules are actually used
Installing the Window System drivers
Installing experimental X.Org Server 1.7 modules ...done.
Setting up the Window System to use the Guest Additions ...done.
You may need to restart the hal service and the Window System (or just restart the guest system) to enable the Guest Additions.
Installing graphics libraries and desktop services components ...done.
Then I reboot the guest Debian Squeeze, but Guest Additions don't works.
Then I run:
$ lsmod | grep vbox
and paste here the output.
On my host Debian Lenny I have:
csanyipal@debian-asztal:~$ lsmod | grep vbox
vboxnetadp 6656 0
vboxnetflt 12712 0
vboxdrv 158888 2 vboxnetadp,vboxnetflt
On my guest Debian Squeeze I have:
csanyipal@debian:~$ lsmod | grep vbox
vboxvfs 25516 0
vboxguest 89612 6 vboxvfs
nls_base 4541 2 vboxvfs,usbcore
I believe the guest additions don't work because in the VirtualBox window where the guest Squeeze run I can see another (black) mouse pointer that I can use after clicking in to running Squeeze window.
After that when I want to leave the VirtualBox Squeeze window, I must to use Host key to use the host: Lenny (white) mouse pointer again.
So, when I highlight some text in host environment and want to paste it in to guest environment, I can't do that.
Furtermore, I can't to resize the VirtualBox guest window; it still remain in 800x600 mode.
On guest Debian Squeeze VBoxClient run because I have PID files:
