    Just FYI, this came from the log file - there isn't an input-line (or if
    there was, it was 'cat'). No need to include that when posting log file
    contents.

    According to what was posted,
    It looks like there was a failure creating a usable Host-only network interface without specifying an exact reason.

    You'll have to read or post the log(s) for more info, says your logs are in the following location
    Code:
    "/home/jojo/.config/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC.log" to "/tmp/genymotion-logs-tmp/
    I would guess that you may not be running your genymotion install with root permissions (or sudo), which would be required for this kind of configuration.

    Actually, that's not true - it should not be run as root, and isn't
    necessary to.

    Managing the VirtualBox interfaces works fine if you are a member of the
    vboxusers group....

    Which - actually, that could be another place to look here. Artivision -
    check and make sure your users is in the vboxusers group - if you're not,
    that could also be why you can't create the host-only interface.

    Good day. I specified above that VirtualBox6 from Tumbleweed repositories is running fine. If you are not in Vboxers then Vbox doesn't start at all with a message, nothing to do with managing interfaces. Then i don't understand the notion of "host-only interface", that i see is "new" and then "Windows" - "Linux" and others. Also wile Gmotion comes with its own libraries Vbox isn't one of them, QT and GLES are for example.

    There is another secondary problem as well: "virtualbox-guest-x11" asks me to remove "virtualbox", then how will i use "virtualbox-guest-x11"?

    I did note that you said that VB6 was working fine - but that may not
    extend to managing the virtual network interfaces. I don't run VB6 or
    use Tumbleweed myself (I'm on Leap 15.0), so part of this is just based
    on an educated knowledge of how VB works in general.

    A host-only interface is a network interface that is shared between the
    virtual machine and the host - no external access. From the log file, it
    looks like Genymotion is trying to create one using the command-line
    "vboxmanage" tool, and it's failing. That may be down to the specific
    versions.

    The virtualbox-guest-x11 package is guest additions, as I recall - it's
    not supposed to be installed on the host. Installing it on a system
    implies it's a guest, and you can't run VB in VB (nesting VirtualBox
    isn't supported and generally won't work), so that'd be why it's trying
    to remove VirtualBox itself - it's one or the other.

    May not be true,
    But it's my understanding that root permissions are required to <create> an interface, once it's created it can be used by non-root users.
    If interfaces can be created by simply being a member of the vboxusers group, that's a unique Vbox capability.

    Just tried it, and I can on my system as a non-root user.

    Well, Genymotion uses VBox on the backend.

    Code:
    [critical] [VBox] Output command: "0%...\nProgress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE\nVBoxManage: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter\nVBoxManage: error: VBoxNetAdpCtl: Error while adding new interface: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory\nVBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component HostNetworkInterfaceWrap, interface IHostNetworkInterface\nVBoxManage: error: Context: \"RTEXITCODE handleCreate(HandlerArg*)\" at line 94 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp"
    
    This line suggest that vboxnetctl is missing. I searched and i don't have it.

    Looking at my VBox system here (5.24 IIRC, but definitely version 5), /
    dev/vboxnetctl does exist here.

    Are all the VirtualBox modules loaded on the system? There are kernel
    modules that enable stuff like this, and AIUI, this one is provided by
    one of those modules.

    On my system, I have:

    vboxpci
    vboxnetadp
    vboxnetflt
    vboxdrv

    Good day, is there a way to install them from repositories? Also the check command i remember from VB5 is:
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv status
    Now there isn't such path.
