getvirtualbox will install virtualbox on your PCLinuxOS system so that you can run Guests on it
that's what I thought. someone on here suggested I run it to set up my PCLOS guest ::smh::
One of these days I will get an answer on the proper way to install the PUEL guest additions INTO PCLOS to run as a guest.
Lets try and do a couple of things and hopefully sort out the confusion that VBox is giving you. (you're not alone in that - it can be confusing in the beginning wondering which is host - which is guest - when/how to run Guest addditions etc )
First, what OS are you running? - another Linux OS or Windows?
smiles, I'm not THAT confused...lol
I'm running approx 20 guests in VirtualBox on a Mac host running SL 10.6.4. The reason I've been asking what's up is, I've tried to install various flavors of PCLinuxOS over the last year or so but I can't seem to make everything work as it should. For example, I downloaded the openbox 2010.10rc3 yesterday and although it runs and most things work as they should, the shared clipboard doesn't, nor can I drag the guest window to resize the screen as I can do in other guests. I figured maybe is something unusual about PCLinuxOS as a guest. I know it comes pre-installed with some part of the guest additions normally, but VB recommends using the PUEL version of guest additions if you are running the PUEL version of VB, which I am. So I thought perhaps I need to take something out or add something I'm missing to get it all to work.
thanks for responding btw.
p.s. if you click on my lil web link, you can see I do have a few guests including PCLinuxOS
