Postby vibo88 » 11. Apr 2019, 19:35

Hello Community,

I’m trying to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions on a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Guest.

version of VirtualBox: Version 6.0.4 r128413

Host:
OS: MacOS 10.12.6
RAM: 16 GB

Guest:
OS: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 32 Bit
1 CPU
2 GB

I get following two error-messages in terminal:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
myusername@ubuntu-pc:/media/myusername/VBox_GAs_6.0.4$ sudo sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

VirtualBox Guest Additions: Look at /var/log/vboxadd-setup.log to find out what
went wrong
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Starting.

You need a newer version than 6.0.4 that addresses the issue. Try to install the latest 6.0.x test build from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds

See [Fixed] vboxdrv build failure, VBox 5.2.26 32-bit, kernel 4.4.168 (#18315).
