pet2sfs may fix guest additions Subject description: vboxguest additions | Boxpup (Puppy 4.3.1)
Having trouble with the VBox guest additions in Gray's Boxpup.
The guest additions install well from the NOP repositiory pet package.
However on reboot shared folders/directories are broken. The error is a "No such device".
Installing the pet (with or without uninstalling it first) fixes this problem.
Restarting X is not required.
I could script this to occur at each boot, but that would be too slow...
Perhaps if the pet were a sfs it might work better, as it would be (re)loaded each time
This has been tested with VirtualBox OSE under Mint and non-free under msWindoze (XP). Same result.
I am using VirtualBox to make Puppy available to msWin users...
They need something robust and quick.
No problem with Puppy 4.3.1 or NOP 4.3.1 ... hmmm.
Works fine with Synth's TurboPup, based on Puppy 4.2, as well.
Any tips or ideas here?
