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 Install virtualbox-guest-additions http://bit.ly/software-small or virtualbox-ose-guest-utils Install virtualbox-ose-guest-utils http://bit.ly/software-small and virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 Install virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 http://bit.ly/software-small. 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).
