     92'''Note:''' You need to have the '''debug''' Guest Additions (that is, a debug version of VBoxGuest.<ext>) installed on the guest VM in order to make logging from other guest components go to the host log file.  Otherwise you can have them log to a file on the guest, e.g. on an X11 guest you can stop the clipboard component and restart it as: 
     93{{{ 
     94$ VBOX_RELEASE_LOG_DEST=file=/tmp/clipboard.log VBOX_RELEASE_LOG=+all.e.l.f VBoxClient -d --clipboard
