Postby cesarzea » 17. Oct 2008, 14:19

Hello:

Its my first time working with open source source code. I am been enable to compile and run the OSE version, but I cant find the guest tools.

I need the guest tools for Windows 2008 64 Bits.... where can I found it?. Is the code open source also?. How can I compile it?.

My host is Ubuntu.

Thanks.

Why do you need the additions for the Guest? The GA are not a requirement to run 64 bit Guests.

By default, the GA are only shipped with the PUEL version.

The GA are compiled with the OSE just not packaged.

If you do a search on the forums however you will find a thread from someone who packages those for those who use the OSES. You can download the nsis package he wrote to build the installer as well.
