Hello everyone,

I started to work on implementing Virtual Box Guest Additions. I managed to get the seamless mouse and logging working.
Now my focus is on Shared Folders.

I face an issue regarding shared folders:
I found out on the wiki that first, you need to enable VBoxSharedFolders.
I tried this but in the logs, I cannot see if it goes alright or not. even the result code does not work.
Also, I do not understand how to set up the package to get the root folder. On the wiki they talk about "type" in the call function but I do not see what I should enter there.

This is my code: https://github.com/AdeRegt/SanderOSUSB/ ... dev/vbox.c

I hope someone can help me. thank you.

Very interesting! I was thinking recently that I would like to support VirtualBox as a host to allow more complex testing!
