Thread: Virtualbox question?

  1. #1

    Default Virtualbox question?

    Hi, has anyone tried to install the binary package from virtualbox.org on OS 11.0 cause all they have r packages for 10.3 so I was wondering if its safe to install.

    The reason I can't use the OSE version is cause on a custom kernel there won't be any prebuilt modules or is it possible to compile a module for the one from the repo as well?

    The 10.3 RPM works fine on 11.0. That should do you until they make one for 11.0.

    The one in the repos has no USB support, and gave me lots of problems!

    I recommend getting the latest binary blob from their website.

    VirtualBox

    Sun microsystems bought it apparently, so you are redirected to their site for downloading.

    Alright I have installed it, added myself to vboxusers group and even modified fstab for usb support but I still get the message

    Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed

    This part is distro specific, I can't tell you the exact steps since I had no interest in the USB support but there are some wiki pages out there that tell you how to enable the USB support on OpenSUSE, other pages for other distros. Otherwise you can just click Ok and the rest of it works, it's not fatal unless you must have USB support.

    Either arrange for
    mount -a
    to be issued at start up, or run
    sudo mount -a
    before running VB. (details elsewhere in the group)

    With 11.0, I've had the best reults downloading the VirtualBox generic Linux
    i386 package and installing from the .run script. That builds all the
    kernel specific stuff and seems to avoid most of the problems in 11.0.

    The Sun RPM also works the same way. You need the kernel source to build the driver module. Only difference is that it's a RPM instead of a tarball. We are not talking about the difference between the Sun's and the OSE package, that is already known.
