Subject [jira] [Commented] (AURORA-1663) Wrong version of VirtualBox guest additions
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2016 20:19:25 GMT


John Sirois commented on AURORA-1663:

It does work properly, although there is a known issue at the moment.
The workaround I [found|]
was to add `/etc/init/vboxadd.conf` with contents:
description "VirtualBox Linux Additions"

start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [!2345]

exec /sbin/rcvboxadd start

That seemed like too much detail for the docs though since this is likely a transient bug
that will change with point releases of either the plugin of VirtualBox.

My doc update does point out the warning is likely harmless but provides vagrant-vbguest as
an option to try.
I don't see a way to have our Aurora image compatible with all user's VirtualBox version for
the guest additions.

If you have other ideas, I'm all ears.
