I just did that for the 5.5 kernel support so that implies that RH did backport something to RHEL 8.3 and kernel 4.18.0-221.el8.x86_64 that broke this.

see https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19145 for the details about the removal and changes related to drmP.h in the 5.5 kernel release. This must have been backported to RHEL 8.3 now.

Also the drm_connector related changes from 5.5 got backported.

Any suggestion where I can get a RHEL 8.3 Beta install DVD from to verify the fix?

comment:7 Changed 3 months ago by nixuser

You will need a Red Hat Developer Account which you can get for free as a developer. Check here  https://developers.redhat.com/articles/getting-red-hat-developer-subscription-what-rhel-users-need-know. You can then simply download the beta here  https://developers.redhat.com/products/rhel/download. Hope this helps.

comment:8 Changed 3 months ago by nixuser

Actually I believe you can do everything from the second link, and create the account at the time of download. Sorry but it's been a long while since I had to do this, and the pages have changed.

from RedHat on an attempt to get the beta with a developer subscription:

RHEL Beta subscriptions are only available to customers who have an active subscription for a Red Hat product. However,  subscriptions that will let you evaluate Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta are available at no cost by requesting a Red Hat Enterprise Linux evaluation or by joining the Red Hat Developer Program.

If you are unsure whether you already have a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta subscription, you can check by visiting the Red Hat Customer Portal, https://access.redhat.com/management/

Learn more about Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta: https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-enterprise-linux/beta

For more information about Red Hat Enterprise Linux Beta and requirements, visit: https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/534743

I actually have the Red Hat Beta Access but the download is not available to me in the Downloads section, maybe it is hidden somewhere in the HTML emails I got as a result. I don't know. I don't have time for this.

So just wake me up when RHEL 8.3 is released or you figure out a way to provide early access for us or test the above suggested fix I put in on your systems GAs and report the result back.

If you are logged into your Red Hat account, the following link should work:

Replying to nixuser:

 https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/486/ver=/rhel---8/8.3%20Beta/x86_64/product-software

Yes, that indeed worked and I now have a corresponding RHEL 8.3 Beta VM running, however it does not come with any software repos enabled so hard to install gcc make kernel-devel and kernel-headers. I am sure the final distro once releases will be more easy to handle and test then this beta testing stuff.

comment:15 Changed 2 months ago by nixuser

You need to register the machine and connect it to a free beta entitlement. However I completely forgot the fact that after the install the graphical registration program was completely broken for me.... I had to do it from the command line and nothing I read from other people in the community portal seemed to work for me.... I got it working only after a lot of hacking and experimenting.

No chance to describe how I did it because I'm not even sure myself how I got it going! But that's how I got the repos up and running. I think you're right, this will have to wait for final release sadly.

Sorry about that, I had forgotten what a fight it was to get the repos working.

comment:16 Changed 2 months ago by fbatschu

You can apply the suggested fix from comment https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19863#comment:5 to your installed GA in the RHEL 5.3beta VM and test it.

the file to change is in directory : /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-6.1.14/src/vboxguest-6.1.14/vboxvideo filename: vbox_drv.h

after you applied the diffs, you build and install the GAs again with:

# cd /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-6.1.14/src/vboxguest-6.1.14
# make
# make install

Then reboot the VM.

Jepp, thanks! I can reproduce it using that. That's something I can work with.

So the drmP.h issue mentioned initially is only the first problem, when fixing it as suggested in comment #5 we stumble over the next issue :

they have not only backported changes from the 5.5 kernel, but also changes from the 5.4 kernel, namely the vma_manager related ones, see previous 5.4 support ticket #18945
