    Default BT4 Pre-Final - Cannot Install VirtualBox Guest Additions

    I'm attempting to build a BT4 pre-final guest in VirtualBox 2.2.4.

    Following Muts' how-to video, I've managed to install BT4 to hard drive.

    Next, I try to install the vbox guest additions, the install script complains that I don't have build and header files for my current Linux kernel, and that the kernel doesn't support OpenGL.

    I've tried:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
    It all seems to install, but vbox is looking for it elsewhere, so proceed to symlink the necessary directories:

    sudo rm /usr/src/linux
    sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r` /usr/src/linux
    Vbox guest additions installer finds the necessary components, but it now reports: "building test kernel module vboxadd_test_drm failed"

    Anyone have any ideas on where to go from here?

    mmm i had a reply but messed up...
    They ran this hack in V.M.O., so I'm isolating the A.P.I., and just booting the host. -Matthew Farrell
