Thread: virtual box, shared folder and boot message..

  1. #1

    Angry virtual box, shared folder and boot message..

    os: opensuse 11.0 (host: opensuse, guest: windows xp mce 2005)
    installed virtualbox from sun's site. (not the ose)
    installed the kernels and others except the virtual box from suse repo.
    installed guest additions , every thing including usb works except folder sharing.
    it says the networkname couldnot be found, error 67, ??

    i found these lines included in suse boot log:

    Starting VirtualBox Additions failed
    (modprobe vboxadd failed)

    Starting VirtualBox host networkingdone


    Starting VirtualBox Additions shared folder support failed
    (modprobe vboxvfs failed)

    Starting VirtualBox kernel moduledone

    Check the VM settings - Shared Folders
    Make sure you have the correct folder path and Name and it's Full access

    In XP
    open windows explorer
    go to my networking places - entire network - virtual box shared folders
    map network drive: use x: \\vboxsvr\sharename


    see vbox manual

    In a Windows guest, starting with VirtualBox 1.5.0, shared folders are
    browseable and are therefore visible in Windows Explorer. So, to attach the
    host’s shared folder to your Windows guest, open Windows Explorer and look
    for it under “My Networking Places” -> “Entire Network” -> “VirtualBox Shared
    Folders”. By right-clicking on a shared folder and selecting “Map network drive”
    from the menu that pops up, you can assign a drive letter to that shared folder.
    Alternatively, on the Windows command line, use the following:
    net use x: \\vboxsvr\sharename
    While vboxsvr is a fixed name (note that vboxsrv would also work), replace
    “x:“ with the drive letter that you want to use for the share, and sharename
    with the share name specified with VBoxManage.

    I dont have "entire network" in windows xp mce 2005 edition. Instead , i have checked all the network there is nothing as virtualbox shared folder.

    I think there is some problem with suse also as it says it cannot initialize the vbox share service

    And i have tried net use from command line too. not working.

    OK. I just went to MY xp mce and opened windows explorer
    Accross the top go to tools - select map network drive
    Mine uses the drive letter Z
    the folder is: \\VBOXSVR\Downloads

    Downloads being the name of the folder in my Linux host - name your folder accordingly
    This is the folder you have also put in the folders section of the vbox settings for the xp vm

    Thanks........ that works...

    but still i cannot do it from command line. but it worked from tools > map networkdrive, (last time it was not working, may be case sensitive? i used VBOXSVR this time instead of vboxsvr.. !!)

    Thanks again

    Enjoy
    Try seamless windows - (better without comiz though) it's very neat.
    Or go to Machine adjust window size - then maximize the xp machine window (not the same as seamless but quite good too)

    Ya. those things are pretty neat. I was using those features. The most important for me were usb and shared folder for now. Only the folder sharing was giving some problems. now its good.

    I'm having a very similar problem, but the Explorer trick hasn't fixed it for me.

    At boot, I have observed a similar message, saying that the services vboxadd and vboxvfs failed to start, also because the modprobe failed. Trying the modprobe vboxvfs manually, I get

    Code:
    WARNING: Error inserting vboxadd (/lib/modules/2.6.25.9-0.2-default/updates/vboxadd.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    FATAL: Error inserting vboxvfs (/lib/modules/2.6.25.9-0.2-default/updates/vboxvfs.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    And modprobe vboxadd gives me

    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting vboxadd (/lib/modules/2.6.25.9-0.2-default/updates/vboxadd.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    Here are the unkown symbols that I find in dmesg:

    Code:
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockReleaseNoInts
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleAlloc
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockCreate
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleFree
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleInit
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockDestroy
    vboxadd: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockAcquireNoInts
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol vboxadd_cmc_open
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTLogBackdoorPrintf
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol vboxadd_cmc_ctl_guest_filter_mask
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockReleaseNoInts
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleAlloc
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTErrConvertToErrno
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol vboxadd_cmc_call
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockCreate
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTAssertDoBreakpoint
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleFree
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol vboxadd_cmc_close
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTHeapSimpleInit
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol AssertMsg2
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockDestroy
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol AssertMsg1
    vboxvfs: Unknown symbol RTSpinlockAcquireNoInts
    Any ideas? Virtualization is great, but if I can't transfer data back and forth, it's rather useless for me.

    Thanks!
