Install Guest Additions: Linux System Engineer: Advanced Disk Systems and System Backup

VirtualBox Guest Additions is a software package for VirtualBox that expands its abilities and provides a more seamless user experience. Adding Guest Additions is not required but allows our VMs to run in full screen mode without black bars and also provides seamless mouse integration so users don't have to hit their host key to release their mouse pointers. In this video, install an updated kernel, the kernel source, and software development tools. Then, insert the Guest Additions CD and the installer compiles a new kernel module.
