building guest additions in VirtualBox with 38-kernel fails


Virtualbox, guest is Debian, host is Debian.
I mount the guest-additions like usual, go there and run it with
sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run
and it ends with and error:
Code:
Building the main  Guest Additions module ... fail.
Look at /var/log/vbox-addinstal.log to find out what went wrong.
As far i can tell that is the main error:
Code:
-D"KBUILD_MODNAME=KBUILD_STR(vboxguest)" -c -o /tmp/vbox.0/.tmp_VBoxGuest-linux.o /tmp/vbox.0/VBoxGuest-linux.c
In file included from /tmp/vbox.0/r0drv/linux/the-linux-kernel.h:34,
                 from /tmp/vbox.0/VBoxGuest-linux.c:27:
/tmp/vbox.0/include/iprt/types.h:97:31: error: linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
I can recreate the error in with a different VirtualBox-installation
(guest Debian, kernel: 2.6.38-1-686)
I ain't got that problem with other kernels.

Code:
$ apt-cache policy virtualbox-ose
virtualbox-ose:
  Installed: 4.0.4-dfsg-1
  Candidate: 4.0.4-dfsg-1
  Version table:
 *** 4.0.4-dfsg-1 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sid/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
$

Hi,

You need to create a symlink:
Code:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-1-686/include/generated/autoconf.h /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-1-686/include/linux/
Regards

GuestAdditions on SUSE 11.4

With OpenSuse 11.4, life is too easy..VirtualBox Additions are already installed for you.
Simply Know this command:mount -t vboxsf [-o OPTIONS] sharename mountpoint

Procedure
Sharename: Devices>Shared Folder>[smith]
Mountpoint: /mnt/documents
Note create the folder: mkdir /mnt/documents

mount -t vboxsf smith /mnt/documents

Enjoy

Cool another answer

anyone still having problems, this fixed it for me.
"sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant;"
