    I've been using Oracle's VB on tumbleweed for a few years and not
    experienced any issues yet.

    Thanks, yes, I'd seen that.

    It looks as though he has built a virtualbox 6.0.6 rpm package - which is what the Arch linux users were having problems with - and is referenced as having the same problem in the bug report

    Whereas the current package in OpenSuse Tumbleweed that has the bug is 6.0.4-3.3

    (I'm pretty sure 6.0.4-3.1 was working as I was using my Win7 VM sometime early last week)


    I might post to the bug tracker that it's 6.0.4 that is broken in Tumbleweed. But I appreciate his work to compile and fix it.

    This is not meant to come over as a criticism, certainly given the mistakes I've made during this thread and the bug tracker!

    Also thanks to kensch who posted that he has used Oracle's VirtualBox Repo.

    I'll have a look at both these solutions this evening and hopefully post some results....



    Now, if only I could get Arturia and Line6 / Yamaha to provide software that doesn't require Windows or OSX...

    You do not need VirtualBox to run Windows VM on Linux host. Do not have OS X experience.

    Yes, true.

    I have used virtualisation with Xen since about 2006, and more recently used ganeti, and also virsh / virt-manager - just not on my laptop, which is where I started using VirtualBox

    I should probably convert to using Virtual Machine Manager on my laptop, it's just I haven't got round to it yet

    Noticed a separate link for openSUSE "current" vs "old" openSUSE on Virtualbox recently but didn't look into that deeply...

    If this is a brand new install or even an Virtualbox upgrade from an existing Virtualbox...

    You should know that you are not required to upgrade to VB6 for the time being... Virtualbox is still supporting VB5 fully and just released some patches and a new VB5 version...

    If you need a working VBox, I highly recommend installing VB5 for now, wait until the bugs are worked out before installing or upgrading to VB6.

    Hi Ken

    Thanks, I've finally got round to using the official Oracle VirtualBox repoe, after doing a bit of research into the dependency issue I got when I tried to install from it the first time,

    which was

    Code:
    Problem: nothing provides libvpx.so.1()(64bit) needed by VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1.x86_64
    There were threads on the VirtualBox forums suggesting that simply creating links in /usr/lib64 would fix problems

    so I did:

    Code:
    cd /usr/lib64/
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.1
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.4
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.2
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.3
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.5
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.5.0
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.4.0
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.3.0
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.2.0
    sudo ln -s libvpx.so.6.0.0 libvpx.so.1.0
    which is possibly a bit of overkill, as it was only complaining about libvpx.so.1

    After that, I removed all the Tumbleweed Virtualbox (6.0.4) packages I had installed and did a

    Code:
    sudo zypper install VirtualBox-6.0
    NB if you don't remove the OpenSUSE virtualbox 6.0.4 packages you will get file conflicts at this point, so best to do it before

    I still got the error about libvpx.so.1 but told it to install anyway

    and 6.0.6 installed, and appears to be working fully

    Code:
    Information for package VirtualBox-6.0:
    ---------------------------------------
    Repository     : VirtualBox for openSUSE 42.3 x86_64          
    Name           : VirtualBox-6.0                               
    Version        : 6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1                   
    Arch           : x86_64                                       
    Vendor         : Oracle Corporation                           
    Installed Size : 235.9 MiB                                    
    Installed      : Yes                                          
    Status         : up-to-date                                   
    Source package : VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1.src
    Summary        : Oracle VM VirtualBox
    And my Win7 VM is working again.

    Obviously you may also need to update the Guest extensions package inside your VMs, and I also added the 6.0.6 Extension Pack in VirtualBox itself

    For those of you also stuck, you can add the Oracle repo in Tumbleweed by following the instructions on

    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

    You will need to modify the repo file as I mentioned in an earlier post on this thread as Tumbleweed itself is not supported

    eg
    Code:
     baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/42.3/x86_64



    I tried following LarryFinger's instructions on the bug tracker to add his personal repo using Yast2, but I kept getting errors with the repo - almost certainly my fault - so decided to go ahead with looking at the official Oracle virtualbox repos


    Someone has posted that they got Larry's instructions to work

    see https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1132941

    for all the hard work that Larry has been doing, which I appreciate but could not get his repo to work for me

    @iDominic42 ,
    What repo are you configuring?

    On the Linux Downloads page you referenced, I see different links for LEAP 15 vs earlier (that's something new I mentioned above) and each links to an RPM, not a repo.

    Regardless of how you're configuring any repo, you might be installing a RPM for older openSUSE although IIRC at least for installing VBox 5 the RPM was named as though it was originally built for 13.1 (but worked in all versions of openSUSE including 15).

    In any case,
    Without more info it's likely that no modification of BaseURL or RPM name should be necessary unless they don't point to a valid location. They're only labels so likely have no effect on functionality.

    And, in the past I've found the GPG key configurations unnecessary... I either use our convenient "auto accept" command line options or "ignore" as last resort. Downloading, installing and applying key files for validation is something other distros have to do, we have more convenient options in openSUSE.

    What I did was use the instructions at the end of https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads in the "RPM-based Linux distributions" section

    There is a link to import the opensuse repo file at the bottom of that page


    https://download.virtualbox.org/virt...irtualbox.repo

    which at this point in time is giving me all sorts of SSL errors and an unauthorized request page, not the .repo


    However if you do (without the https)

    Code:
    curl http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/virtualbox.repo
    you get

    Code:
    [virtualbox]
    name=VirtualBox for openSUSE $releasever - $basearch
    baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/$releasever/$basearch
    type=yum
    enabled=1
    priority=120
    autorefresh=1
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc
    keeppackages=0
    So if you copy that to (for example)

    /etc/zypp/repos.d/testvbox.repo

    and run sudo zypper ref I get:

    Code:
    Retrieving repository 'VirtualBox for openSUSE 20190423 - x86_64' metadata ......................[error]
    Repository 'VirtualBox for openSUSE 20190423 - x86_64' is invalid.
    [virtualbox-fail|http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/20190423/x86_64] Valid metadata not found at specified URL
    Please check if the URIs defined for this repository are pointing to a valid repository.
    Skipping repository 'VirtualBox for openSUSE 20190423 - x86_64' because of the above error.
    Some of the repositories have not been refreshed because of an error.
    $releasever obviously equates to openSUSE 20190423 for which there is not a Oracle VirtualBox release

    So I browsed the url in baseurl after taking the variables out and made a guess, and chose 42.3


    I'm possibly doing some of this wrong, but it worked for me

    and if I did do something wrong, I was doing that in about the 20mins whilst drinking a cup of tea in the morning before heading off to work

    So I got SSL errors trying to download a repo file, curled it, and still got a javascript filled page telling me unauthorised, replaced the https with http and curled it,

    copied it to a .repo file in /etc/zypp/repos.d

    tried a sudo zypper ref

    and then modded the repo file so it gave a me an answer.

    A quick hack or two, but one that added a working repo
