VirtualBox Solus as Client

Wed Aug 16, 2017 4:52 pm

This tutorial is related to this Youtube video from Frederic Bezies :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl-58x9C49w&t=78s
It's an update for the wiki page :
https://solus-project.com/articles/soft ... ualbox/en/

Open a terminal and type the following command for updating your system :
sudo eopkg upgrade

After type this command for installing the system devel metapackage in order to compile Virtualbox kernel modules for Guest client support :
sudo eopkg it -c system.devel

Verify your kernel version with the uname -a command and if it's a current version ( Solus 3 system ) , you have to install linux-current-headers with this command line :
sudo eopkg it linux-current-headers

Now you can follow the wiki page from the download Guest Additions iso file section.

Why don't you update the help center page instead of doing this tuto ?

Because I didn't know that I have the possibility to modify a page from the Help Center .
Sorry for that .

It seems that mcritchlow have request a clarification for the installation of Virtualbox kernel headers :

Just curious, anyone use this script ?
Personally I just enable these features when I create the virtual machine and it works just fine so I don't really understand the purpose of the script which just make things more complex... :?:

your welcome ;) I will be doing more simple tutorials, trouble is I forgot what it was like when I started using linux.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know, no matter how basic, we all need to start somewhere. I used to hate the terminal when I first switched to linux, now I actually prefere it ;)

Thanks again ;)

I think the script was needed for older versions of VirtualBox where the script wasn't automatically included.
