Description Thomas Andrews 2019-01-05 22:54:01 CET
Description of problem:

Host system: 64-bit Mageia 6 Plasma, using 64-bit VirtualBox 5.2.22 as installed from the Mageia 6 repositories, with the 5.2.22 extension pack installed.

Guest system: Mageia 7 Plasma system, as installed from the test Round 1 of the Beta 2 LiveDVD iso.

The guest system is not auto-mounting shared folders from the host, or if it is I can't find them. 

The guest user is part of the vboxsf group, and the host user belongs to the vboxusers group. Shared folders do work in other guests, including Mageia 6 and Windows XP.

virtualbox-guest-additions was installed by the iso. dkms-vboxadditions was not.

I first saw this after an install from the beta 1 iso, but attributed it to /media, where shared folders are typically mounted, not being created. That has been corrected in the beta 2 isos.

I believe this is the same as:

Summary: Timing of the nfs mount not working?

We've seen this before in  previous releases.
