# /etc/init.d/virtualbox-guest-additions start
 * Caching service dependencies ...                                                                                                                      [ ok ]
 * Starting VirtualBox guest additions ...
 *      Loading kernel modules and creating devices

Have you tried virtualbox-ose-additions? I think virtualbox-guest-additions is a precompiled binary that was linked against symbols that are not present on your machine -- are you using a [rather] recent kernel?

I'm using virtualbox-bin instead of virtualbox-ose , so I have chosed virtualbox-guest-additions instead of virtualbox-ose-additions.

My kernel is gentoo-sources-2.6.30

I'll try virtualbox-ose-additions. Thank you.

Ok, I have installed virtualbox-ose and virtualbox-ose-additions.

Now, I don't have an init script, I have to load "vboxvfs" module, but when I try it I give the same error:

Code:
# modprobe vboxvfs
FATAL: Error inserting vboxvfs (/lib/modules/2.6.30-gentoo-r4/misc/vboxvfs.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)


And the dmesg:

You're actually trying to install virtualbox-ose-additions on a Gentoo guest, aren't you?

EDIT: Sorry, I was mistaken. Package virtualbox-ose-additions actually contains virtualbox Guest Additions CDROM ISO image, for use on a VirtualBox host. Package virtualbox-guest-additions contains guest additions for Gentoo guests.

You didn't mention whether the Gentoo machine you're writing about is your guest or your host machine.

No, I have installed Windows XP on a virtual machine. I need shared folders but I can't load vboxvfs module.

So all you need is virtualbox-ose-additions on your Gentoo host. You'll be able to install the additions into the Windows guest from VirtualBox menu. I haven't yet tried Virtual Box nor checked whether shared folders do work for now or not. I only have vboxdrv, vboxnetadp and vboxnetflt on the host. But what I'm sure of is that Virtual Box guest additions must be installed in the guest.

I have installed virtualbox-guest-additions on Gentoo (emerge virtualbox-guest-additions) and in the Windows virtual machine (mount the guestadditions.iso and install).
All works unless the vboxvfs module.

And, I can't install virtualbox-ose-additions because blocks with virtualbox-bin. And I don't use virtualbox-ose because if I use it, I haven't USB support.
