Thread: Update Virtualbox conflicts with Virtualbox ...

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Update Virtualbox conflicts with Virtualbox ...

    I use the normal Oracle VirtualBox from the openSUSE Leap 15.2 's repo. Suddenly, updating virtualbox becomes impossible:
    patchpenSUSE-2020-2262-1.noarch conflicts with virtualbox-kmp-default.x86_64
    This happens in Leap 15.2 Host AND ALSO in Leap 15.2 guest ...
    Is this an error with the openSUSE updaters? Will it be solved that way, in a few days?
    Or do I have to do something ...
    Or will Virtualbox be confined to its present state ...
    Thanks for helping me out!

    I uninstalled the whole virtualbox, I reinstalled it, and now Virtualbox gives this error :

    supR3HardenedMainInitRuntime what: 4 VERR_VM_DRIVER_VERSION_MISMATCH (-1912) - The installed support driver doesn't match the version of the user.

    I'm startled ...

    PROBLEM SOLVED by restarting ... now I have the new VirtualBox 6.1.16 but I had to go through Yast software for it (could have done it with zypper up to) and choosing "option 1": install 6.1.16 and uninstall 6.1.14 ...

    Yes, there was a problem. Also when you update with zypper there was the preemt-kerenl installed with this update. Also an problem with virtualbox.


    So everyone have to read carefully the update packages.

    I can reinforce this statement – check for the following:

    I thought that, “kernel-syms” caused this issue but, it may well be that, there are other issues here …

    Some of my OpenSUSE user found no network and the default OS was now the kernel-preempt. I have helped over 100 folks move from Windows 8 and 10 to Opensuse - most have a Windows 10 image in virtualbox from the original disk install. I got quite a few calls about no network and errors. Everyone with no network had booted the kernel-preempt OS - the good news was the kernel-default was the 2nd entry on the grub menu - so booting that one and removing the kernel-preempt fixed all the issues.

    I now recommend doing "zypper rm kernel-preempt" - It also removed virtualbox but I did a "zypper in virtualbox" to get it back.

    Something is not right with the virtualbox in the repos as 6.1.16 still want virtualbox-kmp-default 6.1.14. - you have to force install the 6.1.16 to make it work.

    Unix since 1974 (pdp-11, Interdata, AT&T, Tandy, Convergent, Sun, IBM, NCR, and HP)
    Linux since 1995 (Mandrake, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE)

    Just ran into the same problem. Is there already a bugzilla entry for this? I feel its worth one....

    A manual, orderly update solved the problem here.

    Yes, I can do a zypper up and the update works. But next time I see the same error when updating via the softwaremanagement icon.
    And I have no preempt kernel installed...
