Thread: VirtualBox cannot Install Guest Additions for openSUSE 12.3 (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED)

  1. #1

    Default VirtualBox cannot Install Guest Additions for openSUSE 12.3 (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED)

    My hardware: Apple iMac 2.66 GHz Intel Core i5
    My host OS: Apple Mac OS X 10.8.3
    My VirtualBox: 4.2.10
    My Guest OS: openSUSE 12.3 (Awesome, by the way!)

    Command attempted: From VirtualBox menu bar Devices-->Install Guest Additions .... (Host+D)

    ERROR RESULTS APPEAR IN A DIALOG BOX, TITLE: VirtualBox - Question

    Unable to mount the CD/DVD image
    /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso
    on the machine openSUSE 12.3. Would you
    like to force mounting of this medium?

    Could not mount the media/drive
    '/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso'
    (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED)

    Details:
    Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    Component: Console
    Interface: IConsole (MAC address given here)
    Callee: IMachine (MAC address given here)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notes:
    I get the same error if the openSUSE installation DVD with iso image is in the iMac DVD drive or not.
    I was able to Install Guest Additions with no problems on the same iMac and VirtualBox with Fedora 18.

    This question is about mounting an ISO image on an Apple Mac. Untill this is achieved installing Guest Additions on an openSuSE vm is moot. I suggest going to ihe VirtualBox/Mac Host forum (link below) where this problem appears in recent threads.

    VirtualBox is up to version 4.2.12 and here are links for both:

    openSUSE 11.4 / 12.1 / 12.2 / 12.3 i386 | AMD64

    VirtualBox 4.2.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack All supported platforms

    Each time you update VirtuaBox, you must also reinstall the Extension Pack.

    Thank You,

    Hi jdmcdaniel3,

    Is there a way to update virtualbox automatically with online update?

    I have only found "opensuse build service virtualization: virtualbox", but it seems this repository is really way behind.
    1. Thinkpad E420 : openSUSE 13.1 64bit KDE
    2. openSUSE 13.1 64bit KDE on a portable hard disk.
    3. Dell Precision T5500 at office: openSUSE 12.2 64bit KDE

    You can use the one from the repository for auto updates but, its not the latest version and you still must install the Extension pack manually though I am not sure where it gets installed. The later is due to how VirtualBox is written.

    Well, it's still at 4.2.10 which is not that old. 4.2.12 was released only 2 weeks ago, and I guess it will be in the repo soon as well.

    and you still must install the Extension pack manually though I am not sure where it gets installed. The later is due to how VirtualBox is written.
    You just download it from the homepage, go into "Global Settings"->"Extension packs" and select the downloaded file...
    But you can do without if you don't need USB2 support. (USB1.0 is included in the standard version)

    Whatever image is checkmarked in CD/DVD devices in Vbox menu is mounted, so UN-check image or use remove disk from virtual drive menu option.
