Aros

Post by ocean77 »

So... My Aros laptop died and i'm trying to set up an Aros virtualbox.
Got it installed and it's working, but I'm damned if I can way a way to share files with the host system (Fedora 36). It doesn't seem like the Guest Additions are working with Aros(?)
Wondered if anyone had any experience with this and could possibly give me some tips.
Thanks!

Try mounting a USB flash drive in AROS to share files. If it mounts in Linux before AROS, just unmount the drive from Linux without removing the flash drive, then go into the USB preferences in VirtualBox and mount it there. To get the flash drive to remount in Linux, unmount it from VirtualBox, remove and reinsert it.
I'm on registered MorphOS using FlowStudio.

Thank you for replying! Unfortunately there's no device available in Virtualbox whether it's mounted or not in the host.
Although it's a pain I can burn an iso image and mount that to get files from the host over to Aros, I suppose, but I don't know what to do vice versa. Guess I could burn an actual Cd/Dvd, but that going to get old pretty fast.
