Virtual box additions


I have a vista machine that I am running VirtualBox 1.50 on and have installed PCLinux 2007. It is giving me fits trying to install the Additions.

I have been going into Konsole and doing the following:
su enter
cd enter
sh /media/VBoxAdditions_1.5.0 or
sh ./VBoxAdditions_1.5.0

It always returns as no file or folder. It's there and I can see it.

Does anyone have any insight about this?

Thanks

Try running:

# chmod a+x /media/VBoxAdditions_1.5.0
# sh /media/VBoxAdditions_1.5.0
