When I try to install the openSUSE 11.4 binary, rpm reports

error: Failed dependencies:
         initscripts is needed by VirtualBox-4.0-4.0.12_72916_openSUSE114-1.x86_64

There is no package with that name in openSUSE, but there is with Debian.

The problem seems to be only in the spec file as updating with the --nodeps 
option for rpm works.
