Using CS50 Appliance 19 on VirtualBox

After running into several problems with the VMPlayer I decided to follow the guide on installing the appliance using VirtualBox. After installation however I ran into a few issues with mouse & keyboard controls. This is how I resolved those issues:

First I added a DVD drive on the SCSI adapter

sudo -i
mkdir /media/VirtualBoxGuestAdditions
mount -r /dev/cdrom /media/VirtualBoxGuestAdditions
yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers dkms make bzip2 perl
cd /media/VirtualBoxGuestAdditions
./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
reboot

After the reboot had finished I ran update50 again which removed the kernel-devel again, but the mouse & keyboard controls remained functional

Commands thanks to http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com/2010/install-virtualbox-guest-additions-on-fedora-centos-red-hat-rhel/
