how to check version of virtualbox guest additions currently installed in guest syste
Is there any way how to check in the guest linux ubuntu 12.04 operating system the currently installed virtualbox guest additions version ?
I wound up here in search of the answer.
It turns out to be dead easy:
Will show which version is installed. The directory gets replaced when the guest additions are updated.
Thanks a lot - was exactly what I have been looking for :-)
tested on upgrade from ...14 to ...16 addon version upgrade.
Hi, found that post will googling that question. I did a bit more research as I still wanted to know which version is really running in the kernel and came up w/ this:
# lsmod | grep -i vbox
vboxvideo 12575 2
drm 242038 3 vboxvideo
vboxsf 39436 0
vboxguest 228550 8 vboxsf
# modinfo vboxguest
>>> version: 4.1.20 <<<

Or if you *really* want to be anal about it ;-)
# lsmod | grep -io vboxguest | xargs modinfo | grep -iw version
