    Can't build VB guest additions with 3.8.0-1.5 kernal

    I posted something about this elsewhere but I thought a new thread would be better. VirtualBox cannot build guest additions with the 3.8.0-1.5 kernel and matching headers.

    I also have this problem.

    The usual fixes don't work.

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.

    from what I understand it's something VirtualBox needs to address in the next maintenance release.

    Thanks. We'll just have to wait, then.

    This was driving me nuts as I was getting the same 'fail' result and without the additions a VM is pretty useless. Found this link:
    http://www.tuxtrix.com/2013/02/how-t...box-guest.html
    and it worked a treat. I now have a Precise host with a Raring guest and guest additions installed into the guest!

    this "semi" works for me. I tried it on Lubuntu 13.04 and sometimes the guest boots in full screen which is what I want and sometimes it doesn't. also, shared folders don't seem to be working.

    It worked for me…

    But…

    All my window decorations have disappeared. I cannot use Compiz Config Settings Manager, because its window is almost all white.

    So, I've had to restore the snapshot to before installing the Guest Additions.

    It could well be. But my window decorations were also missing. I think I should wait a couple of days and try again — that thread seems to indicate that it is a temporary problem.

    If you disable 3D acceleration in the VM's settings, Unity 2D works well.
