    Default Virtualbox - Leap 42.3 hosts - vboxsf: Unknown symbol VBoxGuestIDC (err 0)

    Cannot install Guest Additions on linux guest.

    First remark : Using any version of windows as guest on Leap 42.3 on any version of virtualbox ( oracle or opensuse ) works correctly.
    I first install Leap 42.3 as guest on virtualbox ( oracle version ) and I could not access the shared folder but I did not write back any error messages.
    I tried different things that did not work.

    So I decide to redo every things and noted what happens.
    From my point of view the problem is : vboxsf: Unknown symbol VBoxGuestIDC (err 0)

    A)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.2.8-389.1.x86_64 from opensuse virtualization : http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...SUSE_Leap_42.3
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/54876609

    B)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.1.34-47.1 from opensuse standard repos :
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/80605043
    and cited image 1 : http://paste.opensuse.org/6767242
    and cited image 2 : http://paste.opensuse.org/16124928

    C)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.1.34-47.1 from oracle :
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/97062285

    Any help is welcome

    The host-kmp should only installed in the host.
    The guest-kmp should only be installed in the Guest.

    What I try to explain :

    up to now :

    A1-) install virtualbox
    A2-) install a guest
    A3-) restart the guest
    A4-) install the guest addition.

    Now

    B1-) install virtualbox
    B2-) install a guest
    B3-) restart the guest
    Got error
    VBoxClient: VBoxClient (seamless): failed to start. Stage: Setting guest IRQ

    Folowing

    4.2.2.1. Installing the Linux Guest AdditionsThe VirtualBox Guest Additions for Linux are provided on the same virtual CD-ROM file as the Guest Additions for Windows described above. They also come with an installation program guiding you through the setup process, although, due to the significant differences between Linux distributions, installation may be slightly more complex.
    Installation generally involves the following steps:

    1. Before installing the Guest Additions, you will have to prepare your guest system for building external kernel modules. This works similarly as described in Section 2.3.2, “The VirtualBox driver modules”, except that this step must now be performed in your Linux guest instead of on a Linux host system, as described there.
      If you suspect that something has gone wrong, check that your guest is set up correctly and try executing the command
      rcvboxadd setup as root.

    Code:
    sudo rcvboxadd setup
    VirtualBox Guest Additions: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules.
    VirtualBox Guest Additions: Running kernel modules will not be replaced until the system is restarted
    VirtualBox Guest Additions: Starting.
    VirtualBox Guest Additions: modprobe vboxsf failed
    You may need to restart the Window System (or just restart the guest system)
    to enable the Guest Additions.
    In any try I made vboxsf always failed.

    First,
    Yes I've also found that the Guest Additions automatically installed by openSUSE do not usually support Shared Folders, so I've also installed the Oracle VBox additions for that functionality. I haven't noticed anything else that the openSUSE Guest Additions are deficient.

    Before you can install Oracle Guest Additions in an openSUSE Guest, you have to first remove the openSUSE version, which especially means removing related kernel modules. As you'll see, don't trust anything to happen automatically, you should be certain by removing manually.

    The following is my SOP for installing Oracle Guest Additions in an openSUSE Guest.
    If you're installing in any other Guest, with minor modification (primarily removing an already installed Guest Additions is likely unnecessary), the same procedure should work.
    If upgrading an old Guest Additions which won't upgrade automatically, then these steps should work for that scenario, too.

    So,
    1. Remove the openSUSE Guest Additions.
    I don't usually remember what I do in every install, I've always worked from scratch each time. Without actually creating a new Guest, this is what I think I've been removing (If the following is inaccurate, I'll run through the whole procedure and document properly and post an update to this thread)
    Code:
    zypper rm virtualbox-guest-kmp-default virtualbox-guest-tools virtualbox-guest-x11
    2. Install the Oracle Guest Additions prerequisites. .
    Install the prerequisites for building kernel modules. The following assumes you're running the "Default Kernel" which is... what is default today unless you've installed a different kernel.
    Code:
    zypper in gcc make kernel-devel kernel-default-devel
    3. Mount the Guest Additions ISO
    If anything is already mounted in your Guest Virtual CDROM, then remove/unload. This is a "must"
    If your Virtual CDROM is pointing to your physical CDROM, this shouldn't be necessary.
    In your Guest graphic console,
    Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD Image...

    4. The following should execute the Oracle Guest Additions install where "user" is your account Username and is for VBox 5.2.8 (you may need to modify if your VBox is a different version)
    Code:
    # /run/media/user/VBox_GAs_5.2.8/VboxLinuxAdditions.run
    When complete,
    Now you can reboot your Guest.

    Thank you for helping.
    But if you read my three attempts to run a guest fully configured as explain in post #1
    A)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.2.8-389.1.x86_64 from opensuse virtualization : http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...SUSE_Leap_42.3
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/54876609

    B)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.1.34-47.1 from opensuse standard repos :
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/80605043
    and cited image 1 : http://paste.opensuse.org/6767242
    and cited image 2 : http://paste.opensuse.org/16124928

    C)
    Here the test with virtualbox-5.1.34-47.1 from oracle :
    see : http://paste.opensuse.org/97062285
    For the test (A) I started from scratch.
    And I got an error before installing the guest addition as I said :
    Install the VM with minimal softawre addon ( kate, nmap, ...)
    Reboot
    Do zypper up
    Install some more software ( c/c++ , linux kernel dev, ... )
    Reboot
    Start VM Leap 42.3 :

    Message in popup window :
    VBoxClient: VBoxClient (seamless): failed to start. Stage: Setting guest IRQ

    Install VBoxGuestAdditions
    Cannot mount shared folders
    For the rest I agree with you, but that do not solve my problem.
    Thanks for helping. JCD
