Well, I don't know much about installation. My professor at university has
ordered me to test mouse integration(it hasn't worked). So I need to fix
it.
The only thing I know is that he has used guest additions. I have 2
scripts. The first loads drivers (vboxguest and vboxvideo). The second is
about vboxservice.
Loading drivers works fine, I've checked it using "kldstat".

I've found on Web that I need to add this 2 lines to rc.conf, but they have
been there already.
I have no idea what to do next.

What do you mean with the same version of VirtualBox? Do I have to have the
same version on my host and guest even if i dont use vbox on guest?

Lukas
