Installing Guest Additions on Centos in Virtual Box

This is probably just a simple thing for most virtual box gurus, but I don’t want to forget this.

When creating a new virtual box, you need to install the Guest Additions.  Sounds easy.  You just select Devices > Insert Guest Additions…

Well, you have to mount the cd rom afterwards

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt

cd /mnt

sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
