Building VirtualBox Guest Additions on Debian 5

Here is what you need to do to successfully build and install the Oracle VirtualBox Guest Additions on Debian 5.

First mount the VirualBox guest additions (Extensions Pack) media (Host-D). Then either mount your Debian 5 installation media or configure your Debian 5 package manager to download the necessary packages from a suitable repository.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install gcc make
# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
# cd /media/cdrom
# bash VBoxLinuxAdditions.run


Then reboot your appliance and check that you can auto-resize the guest display. If not, check the build logs which are available under /var/log.
