  • If you are using CentOS/Redhat/RHEL/Fedora Linux…

    Just open your /etc/modprobe.conf file and turn of auto loading using following syntax:
    alias driver-name off
    If you are using Debian / Ubuntu Linux…

    open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file and add drivername using following syntax:
    blacklist driver-name

  • Seems that there is an issue with VirtualBox Guest Addons and Jaunty. The VirtualBox video driver will not install with the latest release of X. So what I did was extract the .run file:
    # sh VBoxLinuxAdditions-*.run –target foo

    This will extract the binary file into the directory foo. Once that is done I go into the foo directory and edit the file.
    # cd foo/
    # vi

    Instead of using vi use your preferred text editor. Next thing you want to do is search for the number 1.6. In vi, that would be /1\.6. Once you have found that, you will see something like 1.5.99.* | 1.6 ). Change the 1.6 to 1.6.0, save the changes, exit out of your text editor and then run the file:
    # sudo ./
