VM additions for VirtualBox or VMware?


Any possibility of including a VM additions package in Haiku so that we can use features like Unity and Shared Folders? I would also like support of the VMware or VirtualBox display drivers so I can have dynamically resized desktops and such. Thanks!


There’s always VMWare Tools (http://www.bebits.com/app/4614). Shared folders can be done with CIFS (SMB) when that arrives (or plain old FTP). Care to sponsor a bounty?

Can’t speak for VMWare, but in the case of VirtualBox, those drivers are written by Sun AFAIK. Better to ask on the VB forums.

The drivers for VirtualBox are open source. Sources for those can be found here: http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk/src/VBox/Additions

Hmm… I wonder if the VirtualBox drivers can be compiled for Haiku then? Is it possible with the GCC4 toolset?
