Hi All,

I've booted up the current LilyDev distribution in a VM (Virtualbox) on my
MacBook Air running OSX, from the file

I'm not able to add guest additions:

Unable to insert the virtual optical disk
/Applications/ into the
machine LilyDev.

I had the same issue running Debian on the same machine in a VM but was
able to solve via:

Tried the same in LilyDev but still it's not happening. I also notice
trying to mount cdrom doesn't happen because /media/cdrom isn't found in

Any suggestions? I'd love to be able to resize the window of my VM.

I confirm the problem on Linux host.
It seems that Guest Additions are not automounted when LilyDev starts.

In the guest (LilyDev), open a console and type these commands:

sudo mkdir /media/cdrom
sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

Now you should see the contents of the guest additions:

ls /media/cdrom

and you can run it:

sudo /media/cdrom/

this will enable some kernel modules: vboxsf, vboxguest.
Restart the virtual machine and it should work.

Currently I see these modules in the guest:

$ lsmod | grep vbox
vboxsf 45056 0
vboxguest 286720 6 vboxsf
vboxvideo 36864 3
ttm 98304 1 vboxvideo
drm_kms_helper 155648 1 vboxvideo
drm 360448 6 vboxvideo,ttm,drm_kms_helper

You may have to install dkms package in the guest: sudo apt-get install dkms

I'll try to make sure everything works without any manual configuration in the next release of LilyDev.
