Ubuntu/Debian packages should not allow removal while machines running

The Ubuntu and Debian packages allow themselves to be removed before all machines are stopped. But they don't allow themselves to be installed until all machines are stopped. This can result in a situation when upgrading that the package removes itself, but cannot install it's new version and destroys all the tools that are required for shutting down headless machines.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

This was fixed in some 3.2.x release. The prerm script now tests for a running VBoxSVC daemon as well.
