Problem with guest additions

Im just starting with this distro, liking it a lot so far, testing on virtualbox and i cant get the guest additions to make the network adapter to work and i have no idea why, my ubuntu host is all up to date 15.10.
Thanks before hand.

#Edit: it says virtualboxclient kernel service not running and is a fresh install.

Re: Problem with guest additions

This is my cheatsheet for VB guest additions:

If USB devices won't show up in the host and guest machine after install, check on the host whether the user has already been added to the "vboxusers" group (both host and guest)
    Check with
        groups $USER
       
    Add with
        sudo groupadd vboxusers
        sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

In the guest:
------------
Before installing guest-additions:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo  apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) module-assistant
    sudo m-a prepare
   
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11

Mount virtualbox-guest-additions iso and build the guest-additions:

    In VB Manager:

        Machine -> Settings -> Storage
        Add VBoxGuestAdditions.iso to Controller:IDE
       
    In guest:

        sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 (if VB Manager hasn't done it)
        cd /media/cdrom0 && sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
   
       Reboot guest

Re: Problem with guest additions

gugo, guest additions are not responsible for getting internet into your vm.
i suggest you forget about them for the time being, or at least until you solved this:

there must be a howto either on wiki.debian.org or on virtualbox's website.
most probably this exact error is addressed in the FAQ.

I get this notification when I boot, but it doesn't seem to affect the operation of VB
