question about installation

Dear KIM users,

I am trying to get ready for the Boot Camp but I found have one error when following the instructions from

The first part of the installation works ok, but then I have this error message:

$sudo mount -t vboxsf share /media/share -o rw,uid=1000,gid=1000
sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

I have tried the suggestions given at and but I did not manage to solve the error.

Thanks in advance for your help.



Hi David,

I saw just this error once. It was because I forgot to perform these commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-utils
