    Why do you want to install the guest tools/additions on the host?
    That's pointless.
    You need to install them in the *guest* as the name implies.

    And it isn't possible because the packages have an explicit conflict.

    What do you mean with "VboxGuestAdditional"?

    If you mean the guest additions, that depends on the guest OS.
    VirtualBox has a menu option to enter the "Guest Additions CD" into a virtual CD drive though (in the "Devices" menu of the guest VM window).
    For further information, see the documentation:
    https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#idm1795

    Btw, if you happen to install openSUSE as guest, the guest additions should be installed automatically.

    Yes, you have to download the ISO, it is not included in openSUSE's virtualbox package (for space/size reasons I suppose).
    Oracle's VirtualBox package does contain it AFAIK.

    But I just tried it, VirtualBox does keep the ISO after the download, it's saved in the user's home directory (in ~/.VirtualBox/).
    If I choose "Insert Guest Additions ISO" a second time, it just re-inserts the already downloaded one and does not download it again (though maybe it does if the version differs).

    In any case, you can manually download it from here and just insert it like any other CD/DVD ISO:
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.1.22/VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.22.iso
    (that's the link that VirtualBox shows in the download dialog)
    If you want a different version than 5.1.22, see here for all downloads:
    http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/
