VirtualBoxVM not accessible on Linux hosts -> fixed after (not in) 6.0.0

Reported by: andyp1973 Owned by: pentagonik
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 6.0.0
Keywords: VirtualBoxVM, shortcut Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux

Description

When installing VirtualBox 6.0.0 onto a Linux host, the VirtualBoxVM application is not accessible with the standard Linux paths.

To resolve this issue a soft link should be created in /usr/bin:

ln -s VBox VirtualBoxVM

...and the following added to the case statement in /usr/bin/VBox...

    VirtualBoxVM|virtualboxvm)
        exec "$INSTALL_DIR/VirtualBoxVM" "$@"
        ;;

This appears to be fixed in changeset 76608. Should there be an additional change to the src/VBox/Installer/linux/uninstall.sh file to add /usr/bin/VirtualBoxVM to the list of symlinks to be deleted?

Likewise, are the same changes needed for the Solaris equivalents (src/VBox/Installer/solaris/VBox.sh)?

-Andy.

Thanks Andy, I have gone through our installers and fixed a few places where VirtualBoxVM was still missing. (src/VBox/Installer/solaris/VBox.sh was not actually one of them.)
