Thanks for the updates on building the openSUSE version of VB. I'm still having
a problem in that Tumbleweed's version of rpmlint is failing the build because
/usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox is not built to be position independent. The
specific error is
virtualbox-qt.x86_64: E: non-position-independent-executable (Badness: 10000)
This executable must be position independent. Check that it is built with
-fPIE/-fpie in compiler flags and -pie in linker flags.
Although that sounds simple, I have not been able to find where to insert the
required compiler and linker flags. Help would be appreciated.
