At work I use host Mac OS X 10.5.8
, Linux CentOS guest and Virtualbox 3.0.12 r54655
. Symbolic links created on the host file system works well on the guest file system via vboxsf mount. I rely on symbolic links for my work, so I won't update yet as everything is fine.
At home however, it doesn't work. There I use Mac OS X 10.6.2
, same CentOS host. I was using Virtualbox 3.x (can't remember minor version) and it won't work. Updated to Virtualbox 3.1.2
and still won't work.
Mas OS X 10.6.x had some updates to the HFS+ file system and the filesystem API, so I thought this might be useful info. Tough Apple documentation may be more complete, I've read about the changes here: http://arstechnica.com/apple/reviews/20 ... 10-6.ars/7
For now. at home, I'm using an bash script loop with rsync to simulate the symbolic links.
- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
while [ $I -lt 2 ]; do
rsync -a /path/to/local/folder/ /path/to/shared/foder/subfolder/
This is lame, but saved my day.
