I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 Guest on Ubuntu 12.04 Host using VirtualBox. Everything is from repository and no direct install. When I install the guest additions, the below error is shown in the console. Before running the command I mapped the VBoxGuestAdditions.iso in the Guest.
The closest I could get is this article which says to install the latest version of VirtualBox (not the one from the repository). Is there any alternate solution?
