I setup a guest PCLOS system on my host PCLOS system.
Yes, it may look weird, but the VM is where I make experiments, while leaving my main system intact.
I am using Oracle's Virtual Box, installed via the Get Virtual Box script.
I installed my guest PCLOS system.
And, when I tried to share folders between host and guest, no success.
Let me explain my actions:
1-In the guest PCLOS system, I searched in the repos and installed the Vbox guest additions.
2-But, the package in the repos is for the Vbox OSE edition.
3-So, I went to Oracle's site and searched for the Vbox guest additions from Oracle.
4-Ok, I got an ISO file, with Oracle's guest additions.
5-I ran the ISO in the guest machine and Installed the guest additions.
6-Ok, I was able to mount the host shared folder on the guest machine.
7-I can see the files of that folder, in the guest machine.
8-But when I try to copy them, to the guest machine, or exchange files from the guest machine to the host machine, I got an error of protocol, and it doesn't finish the operations.
When I tried to uninstall Oracle's VBox Guest Additions, it crippled my virtual machine system, to the point of not being able to log into X.
Well, I had to rebuild it.
But the problem remains: I can't exchange files between guest and host machines. I'm using an USB pen drive, but it's far from perfect.
Would you have any idea or hint to help me out of this problem ?
Thanks in advance
