I have Ubuntu 11.10 as a host and another linux 2.6 distribution as a guest.
When I try to setup guest additions, this error message appears
Building the shared folder support module .. fail
And because of that, when I run the following in terminal
mount -t vboxsf shared /root/shared
I get the following error message
mount: unknown filesystem type 'vboxsf'
Any syggestions please?
Sorry, the mentioned error message isn't complete, this is it.
Building the shared folder support module ...fail! (Look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to find out what went wrong)
This is the content of vboxadd-install.log

Actually the log file is very large and it exceeds the 30000 characters limit. How can I upload the entire log file here?
