After running depmod -a the vboxguest module still refuses to install via modprobe.

EDIT: also noticed this in the boot messages:
Quote:

# dmesg | grep vbox
[ 16.594239] vboxguest: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
[ 19.189333] vboxguest: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
[ 19.327303] vboxguest: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
[ 19.456479] vboxvideo: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
[ 21.022807] vboxguest: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
[ 22.957188] vboxvideo: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
#

These are the modules I forced in the boot manager, the third one (vboxsf) does not feature in dmesg. Also in the boot messages I see that the additional modules from boot manager are processed with no visible error messages (something like "loading additional modules...done")

They should open in evince. I doubt the mime types are there though.

Manual fugal install to fat32 USB2 flash with syslinux 4.04 boot & ext4 save.
Pets loaded:
Nvidia driver, conky,smplayer & tickr.

In another thread I commented:

With regard to these pups they both have fantastic merit and IMHO BOTH should become official pups. (Why not two?)

Slacko is likely to appeal more to hardcore enthusiasts and Saluki to newcomers due to its user friendliness and easy configurability.

Speaking of Opera, came across a nice little extension called 'Turn off The Lights' https://addons.opera.com/en-gb/extensions/details/turn-off-the-lights/?display=en

While trying to figure out why Virtualbox GA modules won't install I noticed that pupscan is available but it can only launched from the command line - it doesn't have a menu entry and it is not present in control panel. Seems to work fine though.

Subject description: (sort of)
 

I recreated the virtual machine from scratch, and reinstalled Saluki. It seems that when installing under Virtualbox Saluki chooses to run in Vesa mode (no X). It also starts @ 1600x1200 which is a sort of pain for those of us that have smaller monitor, but this is fixable in the first run dialog).

However I reasoned that maybe it would have been better to have X running before attempting to compile the Guest Additions, so I went to the command prompt and ran xorgwizard. Choosing the Vesa driver was a no go, but Probe, although apparently unsuccessful (it just exits to the prompt), does generate a xorg.conf that actually puts X in a working state - I can run startx, and now in the firstrun panel I see Xorg:Vesa instead of just Vesa, ditto in hwinfo.

Then I redid the GA compile steps, and this time everything went fine: no error messages, no warnings, no rogue modules. So, I rebooted.

After rebooting the status is as follow:

- Virtualbox does acknowledge that the GA are installed (good).

- the video driver is now Xorg:vboxvideo (good)

- the shared folders work (good)

- 3D acceleration is apparently enabled (glxgear does 333 fps) (good)

- the screen can be resized by pulling the borders with the mouse (good)

- mouse integration is still broken and must be disabled - now the mouse does move seamlessly in and out the screen, but clicks in the Saluki screen happen in a random location (not good)

So basically the only things that need to be fixed is mouse integration, then we could collect all the GA files into a nice pet for one-click Virtualbox support... Wink

That's not a feature slimp has.

These file types open with Evince OOTB, heres some sample files to test it with.

No, that's for running other OSes inside Puppy, and I am sure it's ok .
(works fine on puppeee, btw Wink ).

What I'm trying to do is running Saluki as a guest, ie inside another OS (at the moment I am using Win64, but could be anything else). The Guest Additions come with Virtualbox and are supposed to be installed in the guest OS, in order to enable such features as 3d acceleration, shared folders, mouse integration and so on. Without the GA the guest OS runs in a degraded mode and is much less useful/efficient/fun.

Ideally in order to install the GA you just run a script from the Virtualbox supplied iso,but I've seen that working only in Slackware (which is not even in the supported guest OS list, go figure). All the other distros I'm playing with (Mint, Salix, Arch) supply a package that installs the GA without having to jump thru hoops. Mint even figures out it's running in VB and notifies the user to install the GA package, which is a nice touch.

As for Puppy (which btw is a awesome guest system because of speed and small footprint) mileages vary, and you have to create a user, run the compile script and mess around with services and startup files. In some cases you have to do that without being able to use the mouse or see portions of the screen (depends on which puppy you are using, sometime you just get a black screen at first boot, sometimes vesa works fine but X doesn't and so on - the most frequent problem is mouse breakage).

At the moment I only managed to make the GA work reasonably well on the latest Wary, probably because of the older Xorg, with Saluki a close second (everything is fine but mouse integration, on the other hand screen resize works much better...).
