[SOLVED] xorg-server 1.13.0-2 in virtualbox

With the latest xorg-server 1.13 in the testing, the vboxvideo.so from community/virtualbox-guest-utils 4.2.0-3 can not work anymore. Is there anybody knowing how to rebuild virtualbox-guest-utils to make it work with xorg 1.13? Thanks in advance.

Ubuntu 12.10 is not yet released. We will add support for X.org server 1.13 soon.

Their definition of "soon" is already over 4 weeks, but ok.

You can track the latest source for vbox here:

I see, so we have to wait for the update from upstream. Thank you for the link. I will mark this thread as SOLVED.

The upstream issue now links to a testing VBoxGuestAdditions iso which works for me at least. Saved my day smile

Thank you for the link.

The latest virtualbox-guest-utils released today also solved the problem.
