Now my linux version is 4.12.14-lp150.12.58-vanilla and I tried VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.8_130520_openSUSE150-1.x86_64 but the result is the same. I get the same errors when compiling (sudo /sbin/vboxconfig) . I will wait for Leap 15.1 (coming in 8 days) and try again.

Temporary solution

I went back to 4.12.14-lp150.12.58-default on May 17th 2019 I installed testversion VirtualBox-6.0.9-130569-Linux_amd64.run + extension This is two steps back but now the virtualbox is working.

So if I understand correctly, 6.0.9-130569 solves this for you? I can understand that you prefer an RPM, but if you don't have a support contract then unofficially 6.0.9-130569 is expected to be similarly stable to a release, and will not receive less support on e.g. the public bug-tracker. (Which of course is on a best-effort basis, with issues which we expect to affect a lot of people, or which we think we can solve without much effort getting priority.)

Yes, it solved the problem in so far that I was able to use the program. The errors when compiling are unsolved. In the meantime I upgraded to Opensuse Leap 15.1 Please look at the experiences in the next comment.

As mentioned before I planned to upgrade to Opensuse 15.1 and report: I did it first on my HP Compaq 6510b. The upgrade went wrong, the reason for that is not clear. I did a fresh install after that and installed all (except google-chrome) in one session. Everything worked out of the box.

After that I upgraded my HP Compaq 8510w. I did not uninstall the version 6.0.9-130569. The upgrade worked here out of the box. At the beginning of the update-process I was requested to manually select about 30 options because of conflicting fileversions. I suspect this may have been a reason for compiling errors but my skills are ending at that point, so it is just presuming. After performing the upgrade I deinstalled the 6.0.9-130569 and installed virtualbox with yast First start failed, I received a message that I had to install extensions After the second start I was asked to do the vbox-configuration (/sbin/vboxconfig), got a message to use zypper to add missing software but after that the compiling started and was successful. WIN7 + IE11 is working very well, WIN10 + EDGE is slow but working. Both HP-machines are equipped with 4 GB Ram, the 8510w has a SSD, the 6510b a HDD.

  • Summary changed from setup for opensuse LEAP 15 fails to setup for opensuse LEAP 15 fails -> fixed as of June 7 2019

As of revisions 131177 (development version), 131181 (6.0) and 131190 (5.2), the default and vanilla kernels of openSUSE LEAP 15.0 and 15.1 should be fully supported. Test builds should be available in an hour or so.
