VirtualBox guest additions for init 3 Slackware guest?
 
Hi,

On a Slackware guest install with X configured and running Xfce, for example, installing the guest additions is quite simple. Once the guest additions are "activated", they appear on the desktop and are accessible under /media/VBOXADDITIONS. From there, the *.run script can be run as root, and that's it.

How do I install guest additions on a Slackware guest without X configured? Is there some special device I have to mount manually?

On the Vbox host you have to export the Guest Additions ISO as a virtual CD to your guest. On the Vbox guest you mount this CD manually and run the installer script.

Code:

$ su
# mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd
# cd /mnt/dvd
# sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

Thanks! That was exactly the missing bit of information!
