    it worked fine for me. normally when i run the addon in say ubuntu, one click in virtualbox's gui did everything. but in bt4 r2, i had to manually mount the iso and run the install script. no errors, worked fine.

    Just For Reference: For myself, using the install script worked except that I had to manually add "exec /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all" to .xinitrc to get the display to work properly.

    Many of the VirtualBox Additions features doesn't work for BT4-R2 running on kernel:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# uname -r
    2.6.35.8
    Including:

    - Auto-resize window
    - Copy/paste between host and guest OS's

    I've followed strictly to this post, and also did it more than once, still no solution.

    Thumbs up Riferimento: Re: Backtrack 4r2 and Virtualbox Guest Additions

    Hello ,
    I run BT4 R2 on Hardware Machine work really fine.

    @ sl33p

    Running BT4 R2 in Virtualbox 3.2.12 r68302 on Host Windows 7 32 bit
    the VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run it Install everyting fine
    the only problem is VBoxClient not autostart

    You can check..
    Code:
    root@bt:~# ps ax |grep VBoxClient
    (Phobos419) already write the solution...

    you need start it manually

    Code:
    root@bt:~# /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all
    Check again if the task started....

    Code:
    root@bt:~# ps ax |grep VBoxClient
     6317 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/bin/VBoxClient --clipboard
     6328 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/bin/VBoxClient --display
     6334 ?        Sl     0:01 /usr/bin/VBoxClient --seamless
     6400 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep VBoxClient
    root@bt:~#
    Then you will see all work fine

    Just add the line for autostart when system boot :

    Code:
    root@bt:~# nano /root/.xinitrc
    add this line in /root/.xinitrc: exec /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all

    Have Nice Day ^_^

    Run this command and all Guest Addictions Work Fine

    Code:
    root@bt:~# /usr/bin/VBoxClient-all
