Host: 4.19.30-1-MANJARO
Guest: Fedora 5.0.3-200.fc29.x86_64
Virtualbox: VirtualBox Graphical User Interface Version 6.0.4 r128164

When trying to install the guest additions "VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.4.iso" in a Fedora 29 host with kernel 5.0, on a Manjaro 4.18 host. It fails with error:

Any help on solving the issue would be much appreciated, as I need file sharing for this project.

If you want to use the latest version for your host/guests, you should also consider doing the same for VirtualBox. Try the latest test builds, they contain the fix.

Latest test build (VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.5-129561.iso) gives pretty much the same error on 5.0.3-200 kernel

Unfortunately the newest build 6.0.5 downloaded directly from the site gives the same exact error.

I've just had a look at the guest addition sources from the .iso included in test build 6.0.5 r129563 and the fix that is in the svn repository doesn't appear to be included. Let me see if the devs are around on IRC and see what they say.

In the short term you can make the change to /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-6.0.5/src/vboxguest-6.0.5/vboxsf/vfsmod.h and make the #include read:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(5, 0, 0)
    # include <uapi/linux/mount.h> /* for MS_REMOUNT */
#elif LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(3, 3, 0)
   # include <linux/mount.h>
#endif


From the directory /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-6.0.5/src/vboxguest-6.0.5 run "make" and then "make install".

The devs have worked their magic and there are new Test Builds available that include guest additions that should compile on all kernels later than 5.0.0. For VirtualBox 6.0 you need r129577 and later and for 5.2 it is r129578 and later.

I see, great on the reaction speed. I got it working with the include addition in the vfsmod.h, thanks for the fast support!

Cool, VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.5-129577.iso test build compiles for 5.0.x kernel.
