I'm trying to run a Linux Mint guest inside a Linux Mint host(both 64-bit). I've installed Guest Additions etc. But I'm not able to access the shared folder.

sudo mount -t vboxsf kernel /media/sf_kernel  

gives the error:

/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

Please help me debug and find the solution to this problem.

I install the virtual box guest additions( from the vmware), dkms(both host and guest), build-essentials(both). In fact, I installed a lot of packages. Is the any list which can get the shared folder service to function appropriately?

    it would be helpful to list which addons you installed and where. – virtualxtc Feb 4 '14 at 8:14
