Failed to mount folders in Linux guest. This is usually because
the "vboxsf" file system is not available. Please verify that
the guest additions are properly installed in the guest and
can work properly. The command attempted was:

mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`getent group vagrant | cut -d: -f3` vagrant /vagrant
mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`id -g vagrant` vagrant /vagrant

The error output from the last command was:

/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device


yum updateした


VitualBox GuestAdditionが壊れた




VitualBox GuestAdditionsを再ビルドする必要があります。


$ sudo yum install kernel-devel
$ sudo yum install gcc make


$ vagrant vbguest
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest
$ vagrant vbguest
GuestAdditions versions on your host (4.3.20) and guest (4.3.14) do not match.
The guest's platform is currently not supported, will try generic Linux method...
Copy iso file /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso into the box /tmp/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso
mount: /dev/loop2 is write-protected, mounting read-only
Installing Virtualbox Guest Additions 4.3.20 - guest version is 4.3.14
Verifying archive integrity... All good.

An error occurred during installation of VirtualBox Guest Additions 4.3.20. Some functionality may not work as intended.
In most cases it is OK that the "Window System drivers" installation failed.


$ vagrant vbguest --status
GuestAdditions 4.3.20 running --- OK.
$ vagrant reload



そもそもの発端は、yum updateを実行してkernelをアップデートしてしまったことです。

yum updateするときに、kernelがアップデートされないように回避するには下記のようにします。

yum -y update --exclude=kernel*
