Vagrant: Failed to mount folders in Linux guest
Whenever I was trying to load the machine “vagrant up” I was getting the errors below:
[default] -- /vagrant Failed to mount folders in Linux guest. This is usually because the "vboxsf" file system is not available. Please verify that the guest additions are properly installed in the guest and can work properly. The command attempted was: mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`getent group vagrant | cut -d: -f3` /vagrant /vagrant mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`id -g vagrant` /vagrant /vagrant
After a good search on the internet I found the right commands to tackle the issue.
1. Get sure you have the Virtual guest additions in your guest machine:
$ sudo apt-get install make gcc
2. Then, install the dynamic kernel module support extension and run the set up:
$ sudo apt-get install dkms $ sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup
Restart your vagrant machine “vagrant reload” and now it should load the shared folders correctly this time.
