I do not have a tiny Vbox blue icon on the taskbar so it appears I do not have Guest Additions.
However since I used getvirtualbox script it is the Non-OSE version as noted in the description from within Synaptic as follows:
"Oracle VM Virtual Box Non-OSE version with USB support
for the PCLinuxOS 2010 Distribution."
The virtualbox-guest-additions package seems to be for the OSE version so I don't think this is what I want to get - guest-additions ?
"Additions for VirtualBox OSE guest systems
This packages contains additions for VirtualBox OSE guest systems.
It allows to share files with the host system, copy/paste between
guest and host, and sync time with host."
It gets confusing to say the least. If I install the virtualbox-guest-additions package it apears it is going to convert me to the OSE version. That may be fine but I recall reading the recommendations on the Forums and thought it was best to install and use the getvirtualbox script so I am hesitant to now go the other (OSE) route ? ?
Of course, I don't really understand the differences and why one may be preferred vs. the other.
Anyone see any problems in converting over to the OSE version? Does that mean a reinstall of Windows XP again?
