    Question Trying to install Xubuntu as a guest OS in virtualbox

    Hello all,

    I followed this page to try to install the guest additions to xubuntu 10.4 which I have installed as a virtualbox guest OS, inside ubuntu 9.04. So, I installed
    linux-generic-headers, and the build essentials, as advised.

    I mounted the additions iso, and then tried to run as superuser the installation file.. This is what I got:

    Code:
    jorge@vmachine:/media/VBOXADDITIONS_2.1.4_42893$ sudo sh VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run 
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing VirtualBox 2.1.4 Guest Additions for Linux installation...........................................................................................................................................................................................................
    VirtualBox 2.1.4 Guest Additions installation
    Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel module...
    Building the shared folder support kernel module...
    Unable to build the kernel module.  See the log file /var/log/vboxadd-install.log
    for more details.
    jorge@vmachine:/media/VBOXADDITIONS_2.1.4_42893$
    I also attach the log file..

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Can't seem to read your log. Could you check the tar file?

    Oops!! You're right, there's no log file.. Thanks for the heads up!

    I will upload the log file next time I go to school (I'm working in the labs)..
