VirtualBox OpenSuse Problem

Hi everyone! I have just installed virtualbox 2.0.2 and i have a problem with the usb. I installed windows xp. When i go to settings:

Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.

Result Code: 
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x00004005)
Component: Host
Interface: IHost {489fb370-c227-4d43-9761-ceb28484fd9f}
Callee: IMachine {1e509de4-d96c-4f44-8b94-860194f710ac}

I use opensuse 11 and my user is in the group lp,vboxusers. Can anyoane help me please to solve this?

thx! Cheers!

So I take it this error is from the windows guest.
And you have enabled usb in the settings of VBox for the xp machine?

Have you read here: User_FAQ - VirtualBox

  • USB on openSUSE
    : Add the following entry to /etc/fstab: none /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,busgid=XXX,busmode=0775,devgid=XXX,devmode=0664 0 0Replace XXX by the group ID of the group vboxusers. You can determine this value by executing grep vboxusers /etc/group
    Of course, the current user should be member of that group. After the next reboot, there should be a directory /proc/bus/usb/ and the device entries below should be accessible by any user of the vboxusers group.

  • If USB doesn’t work,
    check your usbfs permissions. See “Troubleshooting” -> “Linux hosts” in the User Manual for a solution.

Thx man…it works :wink: I haved to removed from fstab:

usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0


usbfs  		     /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      auto,busgid=116,busmode=0775,devgid=116,devmode=0664  0  0

Thx again! Now i have problem with the network…i can`t see the virtual pc on the network…i will search to find why…


Easiest way to share is shared folders, or at least I find it that way.
