Description

I've "repaired" the hook enough to fix the ISO build, but I've not checked if the modules are built and usable.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri about 3 years ago

They are built (only for the 32-bit kernel, as expected):

$ find /lib/modules/ -name vbox*
/lib/modules/4.6.0-1-686/updates/vboxguest.ko
/lib/modules/4.6.0-1-686/updates/vboxsf.ko
/lib/modules/4.6.0-1-686/updates/vboxvideo.ko

#2 Updated by intrigeri about 3 years ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 10

#3 Updated by intrigeri about 3 years ago

  • Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
  • % Done changed from 10 to 100

Works fine with the 32-bit kernel, a 32-bit VM, 57MB of video memory.

#4 Updated by sajolida almost 3 years ago

I tried tails-amd64-feature_stretch-3.0-20161116T1118Z-dd5e88d.iso with VirtualBox on Windows with a 64-bit VM and the shared clipboard and the resizable display work (I didn't test the shared folders). I updated the doc accordingly in 55860d6.
