I have installed Ubuntu server version 14. 04.3 on window 8.1 host . I am using Linux version.My problem is that for over a month i have I have been unable to install guest-additions so that I can use shared folders.This is after having browsed many pages where suggestions on this were given.
I have install the VboxGuestAdditiond .iso file at the command prompt and mounted same in my home directory. I was able access the installer and initiate the installation and I have the following error messages in the process:
- the headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following module compilation fails then this could be the reason.
- Building share folder module fails(look at /var/log/vbox-install.log to find what went wrong).
Please some one assit
