Thread: SuSEconfig change the VirtualBox permission

  1. #1

    Default SuSEconfig change the VirtualBox permission

    Recently, I'm annoying by the problem that VirtualBox sometimes crashes.

    And i address the problem now: the SuSEconfig change the VirtualBox's permission. saying:

    setting /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox to root:vboxusers 4750. (wrong owner/group root:root permissions 4511)
    setting /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxHeadless to root:vboxusers 4750. (wrong owner/group root:root permissions 4511)
    setting /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxSDL to root:vboxusers 4750. (wrong owner/group root:root permissions 4511)
    setting /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxNetAdpCtl to root:vboxusers 4750. (wrong owner/group root:root permissions 4511)

    the VirtualBox is installed via the offical repository.

    What's the problem with it? How to keep the permission of vbox while running SuSEconfig?

    You are not running as root are you?

    In the User and Group Management, you set your user as a vboxuser, but not root

    In fact, i'm running vbox with non root user with group vboxuser.

    The vbox runs well for a long time, but serval weeks ago this problem occured.

    Each time after running SuSEconfig(e.g. install/unistall an package from yast) cause the permission changes. Even if use yast to reinstall vbox.

    but install it with rpm -i, or chmod those file will work.

    If you are sure the permissions SuSEconfig sets are wrong, please report
    the problem in a Bugzilla.

    Plus, you can define your own set of permissions in /etc/permissions.local
