Shared Virtualbox in multiboot system - is it possible?
Before I crash my system again I better ask for some advise...
I have multiboot with several distros, and now I'm thinking, is it possible to have them share the folders for Virtualbox? I have put .Virtualbox and VirtualBox VMs on a separate partition, and in Arch I have symlinks to them. I migrated those folders from Ubuntu to Arch with no problem. I don't think any other system have used them. Both Arch and Slackware are 64-bit.
But it is different versions of Virtualbox. In Arch it is the OSE-version (but it has the extensions from Oracle), but as I understand it that version doesn't work on Slackware, at least not without multilib? (I don't have multilib in Arch.) So in Slackware I need to install the PUEL-version?
I haven't installed Virtualbox yet in the other distros I have installed. (Funtoo is the one I might want to install it in, as I think now.) Is it possible to share folders for Virtualbox for theese systems (Slackware, Arch, Funtoo and maybe some more)? Or should I just forget about it, and focus on having it work in one of the systems?
I also don't like to run that installer script from Oracle, that's Windowish to have programs make their own installer. I'd really prefer to install all packages with the package manager...
