File Manager and Slackware 14.2

Postby stes » 9. Dec 2018, 21:36

Host platform: solaris 11.4 with virtualbox 6.0.0r3
Guest platform: slackware 14.2

Video adapter set to VMSVGA does not work (screen is all black), VBoxVGA and VBoxSVGA seem to work

Guest additions compile fine (Slackware was installed with the "D" series for development tools gcc, perl, make etc.)
root@phobos:~# /mnt/ 
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 6.0.0_BETA3 Guest Additions for Linux........
VirtualBox Guest Additions installer
Copying additional installer modules ...
Installing additional modules ...
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modul
es. This may take a while.
VirtualBox Guest Additions: To build modules for other installed kernels, run
VirtualBox Guest Additions: /sbin/rcvboxadd quicksetup <version>
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Building the modules for kernel 4.4.14.
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Starting.

After building the guest additions:
root@phobos:/home/stes# lsmod | grep vbox
vboxvideo 33358 0
vboxsf 34660 0
ttm 81822 2 vmwgfx,vboxvideo
drm_kms_helper 118940 2 vmwgfx,vboxvideo
drm 322902 5 ttm,drm_kms_helper,vmwgfx,vboxvideo
vboxguest 295673 2 vboxsf

File Manager works fine: after creating a session
root@phobos:/home/stes# ps -ef | grep VBox
