How to make a common area shared by Windows & Opensuse ?

I need to make sure that I get this right.
The kernels that I have checked in Yast are as follows and all are 3.7.10-1.16.1
kernel–default<-----------------------------This one looks to be the present version and are you saying I need to get rid of it ?

Yeah, Yast doesn’t run so good in Windows. rotfl!

Well, I don’t know which one you are running right now. Use “uname -a” to check, and uninstall the other.
Or you could keep both, but that’s unnecessary really.

hexdump@Corky-PC:~> uname -a
Linux 3.7.10-1.16-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri May 31 20:21:23 UTC 2013 (97c14ba) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

That’s not odd.
You downloaded the RPM manually from the VirtualBox homepage and installed it, so it is not contained in any of your configured repos.
That’s why YaST shows it in red.

You are running kernel-desktop, as I suspected.

So uninstall kernel-default and kernel-default-devel with YaST.

Except that now it’s black again and only you know why. rotfl!

Ok, gonna try again to install the guest addons in Windows.

Failed last time.

No, that cannot be, except if you created and added a local repo containing that package.
Maybe you have “virtualbox” installed as well? That one would be black because it is included in the standard repo.
There is a difference between upper case and lower case. :wink:

Hallelujah, it works !!!

Thanks y’all for your patience.
