Creating udev rule for the Guest Additions kernel module.

version of Parro:

Linux abvc24725p 4.18.0-parrot10-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.18.10-2parrot10 (2018-11-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux

version of VirtualBox:
v5.2.6r - Windows 10 -

I am unable to upgrade the virtualBox to latest as it work Windows 10 (1803, build 17134.345) and software installation is controlled through packages only.

any ideas on how to get Guest Additions installed? I need to share data with vm and outside world


(Lorenzo "Palinuro" Faletra) #2

try to upgrade ypur virtualbox version on windows 10 and retry with the latest guest additions


(Mike Snowhill) #3

That worked (I had even thought about doing it, but…)

I was trying to avoid that as I am running a “corporate” Win10 build as host OS and strictly speaking I am not allowed to install anything not packaged. But I managed to “social engineer” someone with local administrator rights and install my own downnloaded binary.

Thanks for best Debian based distro out there…
