After I installed Kali Linux in Virtual Box I tried installing the Guest Additions on Debian. After I ran this command :

sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

I got a message that I had low disk space

How do I free up disk space or remove the Linux additions?

I have 13GM hard disk, and I only have 1GB free space ( mind you this is after the installation so I didn't download anything )

The output for df -h

  • Note that the low disk space may be on a particular partition (which one is unclear). One partition could be almost full while the others have loads of space left. Consider adding the output of df -h to the question. Also, it's unclear whether the Linux additions were actually installed or not (or even what it was that told you that you had low disk space, or where the disk space was low). – Kusalananda Aug 14 at 16:11
  • Would this do the job:sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run uninstall – random guy Aug 14 at 16:23
