    12.10 in VirtualBox in 12.04 - Guest Additions

    I'm trying to try out 12.10 in the manner described in the title. However, I can't successfully install the Guest Additions.

    I have VB installed from the repos, so it's 4.1.12. From what I've read, the Guest Additions needed for 12.10 first appear in 4.2. Is there an easy way to get the newer version of VB on 12.04?

    Marked as solved because the problem is overcome by events for me. I'm now running 13.04 as my main system.

    However, offhand, I think the solution to the problem would be to download the Guest Additions from the repositories on the guest system, rather than pulling them from VB.
