    Default Virtual Box fails to remove from system

    I have been using the Oracle repo for virtualbox and have their version of Vbox5.0.6 installed

    I would like to transition to the OBS Virtualization repo and load Vbox from there.

    As a first step, I opened Yast and selected to delete the current Vbox 5 (from Oracle repo) first.

    Yast fails to delete the package, with this error messaging
    Code:
    Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: --dkms requires a version
    error: %preun(VirtualBox-5.0-5.0.6_103037_openSUSE132-1.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
    error: VirtualBox-5.0-5.0.6_103037_openSUSE132-1.x86_64: erase failed
    Suggestions?

    This should work:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -e --noscripts VirtualBox-5.0
    Or try to uninstall dkms first.
