Hi, recently i updated my OS with sudo zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change, but now i cant start virtualbox and it say that have file permission problem as you can see:
I tried with “sudo chmod 4711 /urs/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox/VM” but the problem still appearing. This is the permissions that have the folder:
I’ll be gratefully if anyone could help me.
PD: I’m spanish speaker, sorry for my bad english.
ls -al /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBoxVM
This is the result:
-rws–x–x 1 root vboxusers 162432 may 10 12:18 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBoxVM
I tried with “sudo chmod 4711 /urs/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox/VM” but the problem still appearing.
Is that a typo or what you actually ran?
Should be “usr” not “urs”
I need help with this as well. Same message.
I tried what was suggested:
[FONT=trebuchet ms]sudo chmod 4711 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBoxVM[/FONT]
But that doesn’t work. I also tried many different permission combinations to no avail. I’m starting to suspect it has nothing to do with permissions, but rather something else.
Unfortunately I don’t remember what the original permissions were before I starting randomly changing them. What should the correct permissions be?
I solved the issue. The correct permissions should be “4750”
So the correct command is:
sudo chmod 4750 VirtualBoxVM
The message is therefore incorrect. I guess they made some changes internally and forgot to update the message.
