Virtualbox, guest mabox dont show shared folders


I have installed mabox in virtualbox. I have set shared folder. In mabox guest is mounted folder empty and in log is writed

00:00:14.751635 VMMDev: Guest Log: 17:32:23.676518 automount Error: vbsvcAutomounterMountIt: Failed to mount ‘barbaros’ on ‘/barbaros’: No such device (-1,19)

When I run manjaro in virtual box, its work correct:

00:00:13.987946 VMMDev: Guest Log: 16:55:14.588581 automount vbsvcAutomounterMountIt: Running outdated vboxsf module without support for the ‘tag’ option?

When may be problem? When is different between mabox and manjaro?


This may help you to setup shared folders → [root tip] [How To] VirtualBox - Installation - USB - Shared Folder - Tutorials - Manjaro Linux Forum

I personally never use “shared folders” - probably I’m to lazy to setup them - I prefer simply SSH :wink:

I have two virtual disk, two systems.

One is Manjaro
Second is Mabox.

Shared folders are setting identicaly.

In manjaro shared folders work.

In mabox dont.

Im considering that in mabox are not any packages installed automaticaly,

Have you read and made the setup described in the article I linked for you?
Point 9 specifically - about shared folders?

Sorry for images spam :slight_smile:

Manjaro mount not automaticaly

$ ls -al /barbaros  :heavy_check_mark:

$ sudo mount -t vboxsf barbaros /barbaros/  :heavy_check_mark:

in mabox

sudo mount -t vboxsf barbaros /barbaros/
[sudo] heslo pro zivoslav:
/usr/bin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

That tell me you didn’t install virtualbox-guest-iso


I installed virtualbox-guest-iso and linux-headers and run
modprobe vboxguest

and its work.
