Updating Virtual Box Guest Additions
The packaged vagrant box from Ubuntu contains outdated Virtual Box Guest Additions. Most of the time this shouldn't be a problem, but if you want to update them I recommend this procedure:
- Install the vagrant-vbguest plugin:
vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest
- Boot the vm without provisioning:
vagrant up --no-provision
- Login with
vagrant sshand run
sudo apt-get -y -q purge virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11
- Logout and
vagrant up --provision
