Wikis > VirtualBox and Bodhi as Guest

With VirtualBox (Host) installed you can install Bodhi Linux as a guest operating system.

Installing Bodhi

Install Bodhi as normal starting with step II of the general Bodhi install instructions.

Installing Guest Additions

Bodhi comes with generic virtual box support pre-installed. Before you install the official virtual box guest additions you need to remove these. Do so by running the command:

sudo apt-get purge virtualbox*

After this command completes select the Devices menu and then Insert Guest Additions CD Image:

Selection_146

This will add a Guest Additions link to your desktop. Open the folder with a double click and use the right click context menu to launch a terminal in the current directory:

vb-actionmenu

In the terminal that opens run the command:

sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

vb-terminology

Type your password and press Enter.

When this completes you now have guest additions installed. Congrats!
