USB support in openSuSE 10.2 host

Reported by: ColdEgo Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.4
Keywords: usb, suse Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


I try to load my W2K VM after update VirtualBox to version 1.3.4 and got error message: "Failed to access the USB subsystem

Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).The service might be not installed on the host computer.

Result Code: 0x80004005 Component: Host Interface: IHost {fd443ec1-000b-4f5b-9282-d72760a66916} " I stay at my opinion - it`s the result of that usbfs/usbdevfs is gone.

CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS is no longer enabled, not even as a module

(quotation of SuSE developer)

It really works beautifully, except that. Are You going in few times to make possible to use sysfs with VirtualBox?

well, Michael Taylor <mdtaylor69 at> reported: =====================================

I was able to get USB support on OpenSuse 10.1 and 10.2 working in Virtualbox 1.3.4 following this VMware note:

SDB:VMware - USB support From openSUSE

Version: 10.1

[edit] Problem:

WMware doesn't recognize USB devices. That's because VMware (release 18.7.2006) only knows the usbfs.



within /etc/fstab change the following line:

usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0


usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw,devgid=1004,devmode=0660,busgid=1004,busmode=0770,listgid=1004,listmode=0660 0 0

edit-this line does not work, probably a bad entry for "devmode" try "devmode=0666"

assuming vboxusers group id is 1004

You also want to ensure you have the kernel-syms package before installing/reinstalling virtualbox 1.3.4.



======================================================= I still have difficulties.
