The thing is that I make it loading! But VirtualBox additions is not works (shared Clipboard, seamless mode and etc.) Can you advice where I should look to check it or make it works?

I was made to work shared clipboard on 4.x and VB4.12, but I didn't check it on 4.14, hoping to your extension. I'll check my way to install it today's evening and maybe together we will deal with it  ;)

I've just checked and find out that there is no vboxadd, vboxadd-service and vboxadd-X11 binaries in /etc/init.d. Can you describe me your way of creating extension? My was:
1. Prepare environment:
-number of packages installed: compiletc, usb-utils, make, gcc, linux-api-headers, util-linux-base, module-init-tools, libmpc, libmpc-dev, squashfs-tools.
-download TCL kernel sources, unpack it to external storage.(for example to sdb1/000/linux-3.0.3/)
-next actions was performed
mkdir /usr/src
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/modules/3.0.3-tinycore/kernel
ln -s /mnt/sdb1/000/linux-3.0.3/ /lib/modules/3.0.3-tinycore/build
-create time-stamp mark.

2. Install VBoxLinuxAdditions.run with regular installer
3. Change line in /etc/init.d/vboxadd
from:
daemon $binary > /dev/null
to:
($binary > /dev/null) &

4 determine number of files was changed during install, base on time-stamp previously created.
5 create archive from these files
6 TCL extension was created base on archive we've got on previous stage.


But I did this on VB 4.1.2, but I don't think it has significant difference with 4.1.4. If you'll insist I'll repeat my installation on updated version.

Do you have any news? Just in case - I can help to test your extension.

Thanks.

no need to update virtualbox extensions
after X starts just run VBoxClient-all it starts all client services but i couldn't activate seamless mode others including shared clipboard seem to work ok

for persistency
Code: [Select]
echo "VBoxClient-all &" > ~/.X.d/vbox

Hi. I'm running TC4.2, just installed guest additions installed(virtualbox-ose-additions.tcz and virtualbox-ose-additions-modules-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz). Seamless window and clipboard sharing does not work for me either. Ran "VBoxClient-all &", still no go. Anybody get this working?

lsmod shows vboxguest, vboxsf loaded. I loaded vboxvideo manually but used=0 so not in use.

I just read on virtualbox.org that the guest additions don't work with Xvesa but works with Xorg. Anybody know about that?
