Upgraded Virutalbox Servers to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

I took a gamble at 2:00am and upgraded a pair of Ubuntu Virtualbox servers in the office. For the most part the upgrade went smoothly. I like the new color scheme and the aesthetic changes made.

As far as Virtualbox is concerned, even with dkms installed it failed to build the new kernel modules properly. This can be done fairly quickly and painlessly as root:

# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

If all goes well this will purge previous kernel modules and build new ones based on the 10.04 kernel sources.

The Windows guest additions seem to have an issue with wanting to always be in full screen mode, I'll have a look at that tomorrow and when I figure it out I'll post the results here.
