How to install VirtualBox Guest Additions

Forum thread started by oueshcousin on Tue, 2013-07-09 23:58

Being a newbie at this, I had zero success so far. I don't even know how to compile the source code... The only post of any help on this is here: https://www.haiku-os.org/node/4997

If that doesn't work, how to install this pre-compiled package wold be great: http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~clemens/haiku-vbox-additions-20110723-r2.zip
I extracted the files into root, and edited UserBootscript, but nothing changed except a new crash on shutdown.

Thank you for your time.
