• VirtualBox Guest Additions + Vagrant cannot mount with vboxfs


    My problem now is that I installed everything for VirtualBox using this article:
    https://antergos.com/wiki/system-admin/virtualization/how-to-install-virtualbox
    And also installed virtualbox-guest-utils

    But soon as I try to make a Vagrant box working turns out that the vboxfs is not exists on my system, therefore it cannot mount the working directory into the created VM. I might be not right, but after I installed the utils I should have a module called vboxutils if I run lsmod | grep -i vbox but I don’t have it.

    Trying use modprobe always end up with a FATAL error that the desiger module is not found in my modules folder. Did anybody encountered issue with a VirtualBox shared folder mount? If so, how did you make it work?

    Hi!
    In the Antergos host I have installed:

    virtualbox
    virtualbox-host-dkms
    virtualbox-ext-oracle
    virtualbox-guest-iso (needed e.g. for Windows guests)
    linux-headers (if kernel package linux is installed)
    linux-lts-headers (if kernel package linux-lts is installed)
    

    In the Antergos guest I have installed:

    virtualbox-guest-dkms
    virtualbox-guest-utils
    

    and my VMs work OK.
    Unfortunately I haven’t used Vagrant, so cannot really help you with that.

    And you probably mean vboxsf and not vboxfs? I have shared folders in use without problems. In my host, user id belongs in the vboxusers group. In my guest, user id belongs to the vboxsf group.
