Out of the box integration

One year ago, when I tried to run Oracle’s Enterprise Linux 5 within VirtualBox, I ran into many configuration issues to get folder sharing, mouse integration and full screen correctly working.

Today the story is different.

I just tried Enterprise Linux 5 update 4, with the latest VirtualBox 3.2.12.  Everything is working out of the box.  Everything.

I have to admit I am impressed how Oracle manage to integrate all its product line.

Enjoy !

    Is Ubuntu also better integrated or do we still need to use VBoxGuestAdditions?

    VBox Guest Additions are always required for optimal host OS integration. Oracle Enterprise Linux is not an exception.
    Last time I checked Ubuntu 10.10, there was many issues with full screen integration due to the X server version they are bundling. I did not check wether VB 3.2.12 solves this or not.
    Should you have the time to check this, do not hesitate to report your feedback.
