    Default virtualbox additions client

    Hi everybody,

    My name is Johann and after many manipulations on LINUX at school, I decided to install an OPENSUSE 10.3 distribution as a Virtual machine on WXPsp3 via Virtualbox.

    Of course, this is not the best way to begin under this beautiful DEBIAN distrib, but anyway...

    Here is my question:

    I tried to install the additions client, so I copy/paste the additions clients folder in a personal folder, then I transform VBoxLinuxAdditions.run to execute it with >chmod u+x VBoxLinuxAdditions.run< in root profil....

    But apparently, I need to update my Linux-Kernel-Headers package...
    Here is the code after .run execution:

    "... All good.
    Uncompressing VirtualBox 1.5.6 Guest Additions for Linux installation.................................................................................................................................................
    VirtualBox 1.5.6 Guest Additions installation
    Please install the build and header files for your current Linux kernel.
    The current kernel version is 2.6.22.5-31-default

    Problems were found which would prevent the Guest Additions from installing.
    Please correct these problems and try again."

    Anybody could help me please, after a half-day searching on the web, I'm very desesperate!! How to update that ? Is that possible ?

    Note: I installed gcc and make package, which are needed to..

    Thanxx a lot guys

    Note that in YAST2, I found the actual version of linux-kernel-header package:

    2.6.22.19

    I read on that forum that it will be a mistake on the 10.3 DVD support, I mean the wrong version of that package is installed on it, and so, during the installation.....

    Just for information

    You need to install the kernel-source package.

    Well, it works Tilman,

    Thanx for your help and your knowledge

    Now I'm going to share my host printer in order to use it with my Virtual opensuse

    Just a question, my host computer is still using shared network printer, so must I activate any CUPS configuration on it ?

    I'm not sure I understand your question.
    Your host computer is Windows XP, right?
    And the printer you are talking about is not connected to the host
    computer itself but accessed from it via a physical network?
    In that case I would try to configure routing on the Windows host
    between the virtual LAN connecting the virtual openSUSE machine (guest)
    to the host, and the physical LAN connecting the host to the printer.
    You can then connect directly to the network printer from the
    openSUSE guest via whatever protocol the printer supports.

    Or did I get something wrong?
