Ticket #9710 (closed defect: wontfix)
[feature-request] VBOXSF: Please remove requirement to add users to 'vboxsf' group for auto-mounted folders
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Host: VBox 4.1.4 on any host OS (and all previous versions)
Guest: any Linux (and possibly UNIX)
Currently you require all users (except 'root') to be part of 'vboxsf' group in order to use VBOXSF. Please remove this requirement for auto-mounted shared folders. Auto-mounted shared folders are usually used by normal Home users, not some Linux admins, and this creates lots of problems for normal home Linux users, such as my father.
