Updating suse 9 0 to 9 2
Upgrading from 5.0.4 to 5.0.6 killed my shared folders. Reinstalling the guest additions does not solve this.
I have Extensions installed, with the same version as host.With so many of us submitting different setups, this does not look like a fun bug to deal with. For this distribution the reason is most likely that systemd is installed but does not run by default (upstart still used). In the open SUSE guest, please run and check from the log which version of the VBox modules are loaded.If the version is different from the version of the installed Virtual Box Guest Additions then the reason is most likely that the initrd is not updated. It is enough to download the Additions image and install that.See "systemctl status vboxadd.service" and "journalctl -xn" for details.I have the same problem on Cent OS7 guest on Windows 7 pro after upgrading to Virtual Box version 5.0.10 r104061.1 root root 2588 Oct 24 2015 [[email protected] init]$ [[email protected] init]$ ls -l /sbin/init lrwxrwxrwx.
1 root root 22 Sep 18 /sbin/init - nikita.krjukov: just tested too with a freshly installed open SUSE 12.3, and after I remove the SUSE Additions packages and install gcc, make and kernel-desktop-devel (the right version of it of course) I can install the Additions and everything works fine. I've just restored it to check if it contains /lib/modules/*/build folder. Then, I've checked that gcc and kernel-desktop-devel are installed.
That did not quite help, as you ran rcvboxadd setup after booting. Here is the error message from dmesg: [ 4.940636] .019477 automount Error: VBox Service Auto Mount Worker: Could not mount shared folder "VBox_Shared" to "/media/sf_VBox_Shared": No such device (19) [ 747.710219] vboxsf: Unknown symbol VBox Guest_RTLog Rel Get Default Instance Ex (err 0) Anyone have any fixes for this?
Nikita, could you please provide the following information: the output of "ls -l /sbin/init"; the output of "lsmod | grep box"; the files and /var/log/VBox Guest when you follow the instructions in comment 25; and the file when you execute "sh -x /sbin/rcvboxadd start" as root?
"sudo modprobe -a vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo" doesn't seem to help.
