Ticket #3394 (closed defect: fixed)
USB on Linux-Host only with USBFS
|Reported by:||stefan.becker||Owned by:|
If i understand the Changelog since 2.1.2 correct, USBFS is not needed any more.
But this doesnt not work for me:
Host: Suse Linux 11.1 64 Bit VirtualBox: 2.1.4 PUEL / AMD 64 Guest: WinXP (SP3, Home, Prof), Vista Business Guest Additions 2.1.4 installed
User is in the Group "vboxusers": cat /etc/group | grep vboxusers => vboxusers:!:1000:stefan In the Guest Settings all USB-Devices are visible and i can attach USB-Filters for a Printer (Epson DX8400) and an USB Cardreader. But in the Guest Settings all USB-Devices are greyed out. In the Printer Settings "Offline" is shown.
It works correct via the old way.
FSTAB: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,busgid=1000,busmode=0775,devgid=1000,devmode=0664 0 0 boot.local: mount usbfs
If more Infos are needed, please tell me what.
PS: Its not a very important thing, because the other approach works.
