    Default virtualbox addon wont mount

    hi all,

    i am trying to install BT5 on virtual box 4.0.12 i followed the steps in the other installation page, even downloaded the addon but it wont mount as when i issued this command as per the installation procedures

    root@bt:~# mount –o loop VBoxGuestAdditions_4.0.8.iso /a (i am using virtual box 4.0.12 so instead of that command i used ---- mount –o loop VBoxGuestAdditions_4.0.12.iso /a)

    and after that i go the below error
    mount: mount point /a does not exist

    i am fairly new at this please help me.

    thanks in advance

    Exactly, just as r083rt posted, very well, that is the right way....You are trying to mount the VBox Guest additions in the /a point or folder which does not exist...

    If you do as r083rt posted, the VBox will automatically mout for you in the right place..

    Please refer to the Oracle Virtual Box Documentation as they explain it fully..Please install the extension pack and the Guest additions, both....Do it from the Virtual box menu, picture posted by r083rt. It is incredibly easy..Just one click..
