    Default Does VirtualBox install on OpenSuse 11.0

    Hi,

    Has anyone installed VirtualBox properly on OpenSuse 11.0 ?
    The User manual of VirtualBox mentions Suse 10.3 but not version 11.
    Shortly I want to install a new powerful PC with Suse as host OS and several other guest operating systems like Vista and Solaris.

    The 10.3 version will work in 11.0.

    FWIW, I had issues with the openSUSE_11.0 build of virtualbox. I wound up just installing the version from virtualbox directly, works like a charm.

    The only PITA is that I need to rebuild to vb driver after every kernel update, but that's a fairly easy process (rcvboxdrv setup). But it works, with all of the integrated pieces etc.

    Just my 2c...

    Cheers,
    KV

    make sure you have:


    • kernel-source
    • kernel-syms
    • Xalan-c
    • Xerces-c

    then run: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

    Do this:
    open YaST -> Security and Users -> UserManagement, and edit your user and add them to the vboxusers group. To do this, select your user name, click on Edit, switch to the Details tab and check the vboxusers check box.


    And:



    adding it to the Modules_loaded_on_boot setting under sysconfig editor
    YaST -> System -> /etc/sysconfig editor -> System -> Kernel -> MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT and just type in vboxdrv in the input box.

    * kernel-source
    * kernel-syms
    i have no this... ADD

    * Xalan-c
    * Xerces-c
    already installed

    then run: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    i could do this only as root file have permissions root:root

    # /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    Stopping VirtualBox kernel module done
    Recompiling VirtualBox kernel module, NOT. It has been packaged. done
    Starting VirtualBox kernel module failed
    (Kernel module not found)

    also if i use sudo i have the same...

    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv
    Usage: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv {start|stop|restart|status|setup}

    i have it installed

    Do this:
    open YaST -> Security and Users -> UserManagement, and edit your user and add them to the vboxusers group. To do this, select your user name, click on Edit, switch to the Details tab and check the vboxusers check box.
    check... already in vboxusers group


    adding it to the Modules_loaded_on_boot setting under sysconfig editor
    YaST -> System -> /etc/sysconfig editor -> System -> Kernel -> MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT and just type in vboxdrv in the input box.

    I installed virtualbox on openSUSE 11.0. I used the rpm from SUN, since I
    needed usb support. It installed fine, (make sure you have all the
    prereq's). I then loaded WinXP, and TurboTax, both work fine. If it was not
    for my need of TurboTax I could of just done away with WinXP. I was never
    able to get TTax to run under Wine.The manual from SUN is very useful.

    Ah yes. That's the crippled SUSE version of VirtualBox. It cannot
    recompile the kernel module, instead displaying this message if you try.

    Either use SUSE kernels exclusively and always install the corresponding
    VirtualBox kernel module package, or use the original VirtualBox version
    from Sun which does support recompiling the kernel module for any kernel
    you might be running.

    thanx to all

    if i build svn version is it work properly?
    PS:
    vbox> ./configure
    Checking for environment: Determined build machine: linux.x86, target machine: linux.x86, OK.
    Checking for kBuild: found, OK.
    Checking for gcc:
    ** There are known problems with gcc version 4.3 when compiling the recompiler
    ** stuff. You need to specify a compatibility compiler with version < 4.3. Look
    ** for a package compat-gcc-34 on Fedora systems or something similar on other
    ** distributions and call configure with parameter --with-gcc-compat=gcc34.

    maybe problem with gcc4.3?
