Description (last modified by michael) (diff)
VBoxLinuxAdditions-amd64.run doesn't do sanity check for the existence of 3 components required for the compilation of kernel modules for Guest Additions (at least under Ubuntu 10.10). For Ubuntu it is: dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic
If the modules are not installed. The script runs, and say it is creating and installing the modules but it doesn't actually make the components.
But lsmod | grep vbox there will be no vboxsf there.
Basically a rehash of the following post, but want to report that adding some kind of sanity check would be nice.
