ok here's the deal
I'm running vagrant(ubunttu 12.10) on top of windows 8 but everytime I try to create a virtualenv (python) from within my non nfs shared folder I get a 'Protocol error', turns out that virtualbox does not allow sym-linking by default but one can use this to enable it per share
the thing is that the latest vagrant no longer accepts a 'name/alias' for my shares, how am I supposed to refer to it from that setting? if my share is /var/www ?
# # Use VBoxManage to customize the VM. For example to change memory:
# vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "1024"]
# View the documentation for the provider you're using for more
# information on available options.
vb.customize ["setextradata", :id, "VBoxInternal2/SharedFoldersEnableSymlinksCreate/SHARE_NAME", "1"]
any help will be appreciated.
