Arch Linux VirtualBox Guest
Installing Arch under VirtualBox is straightforward, and additions should be installed through pacman (not through "Install Guest Additions" in VirtualBox, or a mounted ISO.) Follow these instructions after doing a basic install of the X-window system found on the Beginners' Guide.
Install the required package:
# pacman -Syu virtualbox-archlinux-additions
Load vbox modules:
# modprobe -a vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo
To autostart these modules each time you boot, you can add the three modules above to the MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf.
MODULES(... vboxguest vboxsf vboxvideo)
The VBoxClient contain these services(/usr/bin/VBoxClient-all) (copy/paste...) :
--clipboard start the shared clipboard service --display start the display management service --checkhostversion start the host version notifier service --seamless start the seamless windows service
So you can Enable VBoxClient-all to start all these services.
If you are running something that launches /etc/xdg/autostart/vboxclient.desktop, such as GNOME, then you should be ready to go. If you use .xinitrc to launch things instead, you must add
to your .xinitrc before launching your WM.
You should now be all set, and all guest additions should work properly.
Sync between host date and guest:
To keep sync date add the following to the guest /etc/rc.conf in DAEMONS entry:
DAEMONS=(... vbox-service ...)
