Virtualbox Share Operation Not Permitted

Post by zetrotrack000 »

Hi
I have recently installed GhostBSD 20.04.1 on virtualbox and the Host OS is Arch Linux. I have shared a directory (~/download) in virtualbox with GhostBSD. After installing GhostBSD, I checked/installed virtualbox-ose-additions and virtualbox-ose-kmod, and now both are present. Then I have added following line in /etc/fstab:

Code: Select all

download                /shared        vboxvfs 		late,rw   	0       0
But, my system is not mounting this share (download). When try to mount it manually, it gives following error:

Code: Select all

mount: download: operation not supported by device
I have also tried "vboxfs" and "vboxsf" in /etc/fstab, but with no success.
However, when I followed same steps in FreeBSD 12.1, it successfully mounted "download". Therefore, I think same steps (and settings) should also work in GhostBSD, but they are not. Can you guide me that why GhostBSD is not mounting shared directory and how can I fix this?
Thanks
