Confirmed. That's a recent regression and will be fixed with the next maintenance release.

I'm running 4.1 with the latest VBox additions, and I'm also seeing this, in a Solaris 10u9 x86 session:

Same regression? Fixed in next 4.1 maintenance release?

Hi,

same here, with Sol10 u7:

bash-3.00# pkginfo -l SUNWvboxguest
PKGINST: SUNWvboxguest
NAME: Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions
CATEGORY: application
ARCH: i386
VERSION: 4.1.0,REV=r73009.2011.07.19.12.42
BASEDIR: /
VENDOR: Oracle Corporation
DESC: Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions for Solaris guests
PSTAMP: vboxguest20110719124225_r73009

Guess I'll just rollback to the previous version.

after rollback, with 4.0.8 seems to work fine when mounting manually, dunno for auto-mount:

bash-3.00# mount -F vboxfs 10202_database_solx86 /a
bash-3.00# cd /a/database/
doc/ install/ response/ runInstaller stage/ welcome.html
bash-3.00# pkginfo -l SUNWvboxguest
PKGINST: SUNWvboxguest
NAME: Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions
CATEGORY: application
ARCH: i386
VERSION: 4.0.8,REV=r71778.2011.05.16.18.55

Good luck

4.0.10 guest additions will work fine with virtualbox host versions 4.1.0 and 4.0.12. Automount for Solaris shared folders will not work, but at least you can get your folders mounted and working. The missing symbol errors that prevent mounting shared folders only affect guest additions versions 4.1.0 and 4.0.12.

What is the recommended workaround until the regression is fixed? Roll back everything to 4.0.10, or use 4.0.12/4.1 with 4.0.10 Solaris guest additions?

Note that the download link to the 4.0.10 extension pack is broken as of 7/27/11:

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb ... ox-extpack

-------------------------

Using Vbox 4.0.12 and 4.1.0 with 4.0.10 Solaris additions on Win7 x64 host, shared folder does automount successfully. Solaris 10 u8 x64 guest.

The recommended workaround is to install the 4.0.10 Guest Additions into your Solaris Guest. Note that the Guest Additions have nothing to do with the Extension Pack!

Thanks. And thanks also for restoring the link to the 4.0.10 extension pack, which I know has nothing to do with the GA.

4.1.2 GA solve the Solaris guest booting problem, but there are still three weird messages that occur on boot.

Where can the 4.0.10 guest additions be obtained? The only downloads I see are for virtualbox and the extention pack.

The additions package isn't available as a separate download. The host package contains the additions ISO (in /opt/VirtualBox/ when installed). Instead of 4.0.10 I'd recommend the latest 4.0 (currently 4.0.16)
