Aha, is that what I shall do. I installed
linux312-virtualbox-guest-modules it in the (Manjaro) host OS.

So when I am testing Debian-testing.iso in VB under Manjaro, I shall
install virtual-guest.iso in Debian-testing. But when shall I use
linux312-virtualbox-guest-modules ?

And what about virtualbox-guest-dkms ?

What packages do I need to install, and where (host/guest OS) ?
