I am trying to install ABAP as 751 Sp02 on Linux. I am specifically stuck on step C number 13 of the following article, "".

Step 13 says to

Enter the root’s password and navigate to the shared folder with the ABAP installation: cd /media/sf_s4installer.

When I try to run the cd command, it tells me that the file or directory does not exist. I downloaded my abap rar files (10 total) and saved them locally to a shared folder named s4installer as mentioned in step 4.

I have completed the steps up to this point without error.

I tried to move on to step D which is Installing ABAP but the ./ command gives the same error that no such file or directory exists.

Please help, thank you.

    I have exactly the same problem, I think it´s related with the "Guest Additions" included in Virtual Box (are installed after Virtualbox from Devices-->Insert Guest additions CD Image).

    In my case I´ve installed it but this "additions" are not running ( I see in /opt/VBoxguestadditions-6.0.4 with command init/vboxadd-service status).

    Even If I try to do it manually (setting the shared folder) with :

    sudo mount -t vboxsf s4installer /media/sf_s4installer , I receive the message:

    "/sbin/mount/vboxsf :mounting failed with the error: No such device", which seems to be related with the "Guest Additions" too.

    My Vm is Suse Linux 42.3 , Virtual Box is 6.0 and I´m afraid that is a problem of versions .

    I.'ve been searching around and it seems to be a very common problem .

    Fortunately my NSP on Windows is still working .....

    The solution to make it work the Vbox guest additions (and after it,to be able to configure the shared folders) is in:

    I´ve followed the steps under;

    "Installing the latest version of the guest additions"

    and now it seems I´ll be able to continue with the next step of installation (from the excellent blog "newbies-guide-installing-abap-as-751-sp02-on-linux" step D;Install Abap)
