I am trying to install Guest Additions in VirtualBox with Windows XP host and Ubuntu 12.04 guest. I followed the above steps:
Devices-> Insert Guest Additions CD Image. After that I locate the folder /media/VBoxAdditions4.3.4_91027/ and run sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
I want to be able to create shared folders and adjust the resolution of the screen. I achieved to do the first issue, but I couldn't do the second one. I didn't get any message, however it is not possible to change the resolution of the screen and I cannot switch to fullscreen. What am I doing wrong?
I found in the instal log the following message:
unknown version of the X Window System. I've tried the solution of the proposed link but I got the following message:
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: virtualbox-guest-x11 : Depends: xorg-video-abi-11 Depends: xserver-xorg-core (>= 2:126.96.36.1991) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I tried also to install with the command
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms but nothing is changing. During the installation of dkms I got the message:
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel 3.13.0-32-generic(i686).
