    Default VirtualBox autoload


    Hello folks,
    Please help me to resolve following task: I install VirtualBox on
    OpenSuse11. It's work ok. But after each restart/shutdown computer I
    need enter:
    1)/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
    - otherwise it couldn't start

    2)# Brctl addbr br0
    # Ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 PROMISC
    # Brctl addif br0 eth0
    # Dhclient br0
    # VBoxAddIF vbox0 username br0
    - for network support.

    Is that possible to put it somethere for automatic reload each time?
    I'm new in Linux so i need detail answer.

    You actually don't need vboxdrv setup, it's vboxdrv start you need. You
    can make this happen by enabling the vboxdrv service to start at boot
    from YaST, or by


    Code:
    --------------------
    chkconfig --set vboxdrv on
    --------------------


    from the CLI. Just like any other service.

    The bridge setup you have do to by editing in /etc/sysconfig/network.
    Most likely by creating an ifcfg-br0. Sorry I can't help you there as I
    don't run a bridged VM on my machine. I believe there is a worked
    example for SUSE in the PDF documentation for VirtualBox.

    Thanks for so simple solution for 1! You are the great man!
    About 2- I'm already try that scince posting but only particular
    succsessful. I made config file for a bridge and it recieved ip address
    from DHCP server. But Guest OS coudn't recieve. Seemes that 'vbox'
    interface didn't get ip.

    The last problem that I need to resolve is that virtual interface which
    I create by VBoxAddIF - work only before reset, after reset it's not
    working.
    How can I fix it?
    I can't understand why it's gone because it must be permanent? :-0
