Ticket #8403 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
tools auto update
|Reported by:||X301||Owned by:|
Virtual-box when there is a new release, should update tools automatically on boot when any running guest OS, including any Linux distros and OSX.
ATM Linux has all to be done manually which is quite counter productive having to mount disk (after selecting Host+D form devices menu) the open a terminal cd to mount location and have to sh the .run package and wait.... Very messy.
OS2 it even worst despite it being beta the tools you have to jump through hoops of fire and brimstone to get OS2 tools installed, After looking at procedure despite being very experienced, after the first paragraph I decided not to even bother.
As usability and accessibility goes this is bad news. I hope this gets looked at and reworked.
