Can not install Guest Additions in VirtualBox for CentOS 6 guest
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 22, 2014
I've just got my guest box running CentOS working perfectly, except for one problem. I'm trying to mount a shared folder. I've followed the instructions for getting the shared folder "Mountable" by using this code:
VBoxManage sharedfolder add "TEST - 250" --name "github" --hostpath "C:\filepath\github"
Where "TEST - 250" is the name of the VM, "github" is the name of the folder as I'd like to call it in my VM, and "C:\filepath\github" is the directory path on the Windows host where I can find the contents I would like to share.
All seems well, and as instructed by Oracle, I am to use this command in the VM:
sudo mount -t vboxsf shared ~/host
I've made a directory off of the root called "host". The problem here is that I'm getting the following message:
mount: unknown filesystem type 'vobxsf'
Looking at this further, I'm told that in the /sbin/ folder, there should be a file called mount.vboxsf, where there is not.
I then read chapter 4 here: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual
