Debian Etch USB Support and Shared Folder.

Postby b_chris » 11. Jul 2007, 15:43

Ok, after struggling with this and an install of Etch business card, I finally reinstalled with the NetInstall Version of etch, installed Virtualbox 1.4.0.

Made the following alteration which is in the manual.

Debian Etch has the mount command in /etc/init.d/ Since
that distribution has no group usb, it is also the easiest solution to allow all members
of the group vboxusers to access the USB subsystem. Modify the line

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
domount usbfs usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb -onoexec,nosuid,nodev

And then added this to fstab:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
none       /proc/bus/usb   usbfs   rw,user,devgid=1001,devmode=0666 0 0

Where 1001 is your vboxusers group number.

As for setting up the shred folder. Follow the manual, I could not get it to work using a RUN command in XP guest, but it did work when I set it up using Map Network Drive in the tools menu of My Computer in the windows guest.

Hope this helps someone.
