I'm setting up a development server with VirtualBox. I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Server. I want to use filesharing to setup the files that I need to develop on but it seems that the CD drive is not mounting to install the Virtualbox guest additions. How can I configure this to setup the file sharing.
If you have Ubuntu in a VirtualBox VM, you can install the guest additions as an Ubuntu package. Either grab virtualbox-guest-additions or virtualbox-ose-guest-utils and virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 . The OSE guest utilities are compatible with the proprietary VM and vice versa (at least with respect to common features such as file sharing and pointer grabbing).
