Hello all! I'd like to try Manjaro as a guest VM in Virtualbox before pulling the plug and installing it as a dual boot on my desktop (but I need a new WiFi adapter for that... so I'll probably have to wait a while).
I'm able to install Manjaro in the VM and is currently up and running, both on a Windows 10 desktop and on a MacOS laptop. However, I'm a bit puzzled about Virtualbox Guest Additions installation. I know I can install them either via the Virtualbox Guest ISO mounted in the desktop, or via Pacman installing
Apparently, only the ISO method works for me: after installing
linux419-headers, the additions installed from the script available in the ISO seem to work fine after a reboot. Anyway I also wanted to try the Pacman based solution, just to have them managed by the package manager; unfortunately, installing the aforementioned packages (
linux419-virtualbox-guest-modules) seems to have no effect on my VM even after a reboot. I also tried to install
virtualbox-guest-dkms but nothing changed as well.
Unfortunately I'm not skilled in kernel modules, the architecture, and so on... So I'm kinda stuck here. I know I could simply use the ISO addons and live happy... but where's the fun in that?
So... I would be glad if someone could point me to the right direction! Thanks
