Re: VirtualBox Problems [Solved]

sabayonino, let me ask this question another way. Are you implying that there is no need for installing guest additions from an ISO image, which is what was always required before? If that is true, then why does VirtualBox prompt me to update the guest additions even after I have updated all Sabayon...

Re: VirtualBox Problems [Solved]

Pay attention indeed. 1. From the error messages it appears that VIrtualBox seeks an ISO image located at /opt/VirtualBox/additions/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso. 2. Observing the output of "equo q files app-emulation/virtualbox | grep /usr/bin | awk '{print $3}'" provides the following output: /usr/bin /u...

I obtained the ISO image from https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.6/VBoxGuestAdditions_6.1.6.iso. I then executed mkdir -p /opt/VirtualBox/additions. I then copied the VBoxGuestAddit...

Re: VirtualBox Problems

Thank you for answering, sabayonino, and I am sorry it took so long for this reply. I do not believe that version is the root cause. # equo s app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions -qv app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-6.1.4-r1#4.19.0-sabayon app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions-6.1.4-r...

Re: Loss of Dual-Boot Again [Solved]

Interestingly, /proc/partitions shows entries for sda, sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4, sda5, sda6 and sda7, so the operating system has a means of detecting all partitions, whether or not they are mounted, because sda1 and sda2 are not mounted.
