    Default USB support in VBox OSE with SUSE 11.1 ??


    While scouring through the various posts the topic of usb support, it
    appears to be kicked from post to pillar with varying degrees of success
    reported by users.
    I use VBox OSE and I like to stick with it as it is updated
    automatically by way of the repository. However usb support seems to be
    missing unless I am wrong. This is unfortunate in my case, since printer
    installation requires the presence of a usb port. Granted, there are
    workarounds by moving files to the host O/S but it is not an elegant
    solution.
    Now my question: Is there perhaps a solution to to get VBox OSE to
    recognize usb ports?

    Thank you for taking time to reply.

    I think the usb support isn't implemented yet, so there can't be a
    workaround. (Note: I don't know it exactly)
    Use the Non-OSE Edition from the homepage, it's not bad having one
    program not updated automatically.
    There are so much things running automatically, by this you can step
    back from getting too lazy

    There is no way considering you have installed the ose version. Why dont
    you install the "full" version ???

    The full version will notify you whenever there is a new version
    available, too. Very easy to upgrade it.
