    Photon Vagrant Box

    karlv Novice



      I am following the instructions on the Vagrant site for running Photon under Vagrant control.   They work great - first time out of the box!



      Question though: 

      I realize VMware is probably not terribly eager to support Virtualbox but many of us do use it for this type of project.   It seems to be working fine, the Photon instance starts and I can start the docker container and see the "hello world",  but I am getting errors during the shared folder mount - see below.   The question, "For basic testing do I need to mount a shared folder at all?"   If not I can just turn it off in the Vagrantfile and get rid of the error message.  If I do, then it might be helpful if you pushed an update with the latest VBoxGuestAdditions installed.


      default: /vagrant => C:/cygwin64/home/KSVIETME/vagrant/photon-vagrant

      Vagrant was unable to mount VirtualBox shared folders. This is usually

      because the filesystem "vboxsf" is not available. This filesystem is

      made available via the VirtualBox Guest Additions and kernel module.

      Please verify that these guest additions are properly installed in the

      guest. This is not a bug in Vagrant and is usually caused by a faulty

      Vagrant box. For context, the command attempted was:


      mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 vagrant /vagrant



      Thanks for the great work!
