  If you mean the ones available through Yast::Software Management...
  Yes. Here is the error message when I tried to run "VirtualBox &" as a
normal user (not root).

----[ error message ]----
Effective UID is not root (euid=1000 egid=100 uid=1000 gid=100) (rc=-10)
Please try reinstalling VirtualBox.

Permission denied.

VirtualBox: Tip! It may help to reinstall VirtualBox.
----[ end ]----

Running as root VBox does start. But without any of the guests
available; the guest data is in the user home.
