[Solved] Installing Arch guest in virtualbox - guest additions problem

Hi there.

I've installed Arch guest under Arch host in  VirtualBox 4.2.4-2 (I didn't install any X till now in guest Arch)

After it I've tried to install guest additions: Following this wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VirtualBox#Arch_Linux_guests:

# modprobe -a vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo

And adding those moduls to /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf

After reboot modules are loaded but I can't use full screen in virtualbox nor I can't use auto resize..

So how do I install guest additions in virtualbox for Arch guest within Arch host?


EDIT: It installed correctly, the problem was that if no X how can guest additions work? LOL on me...

Seamless mode still does not work - using xmonad on guest os.
