Howdy,

With the latest drop of `openSUSE 11.3 - milestone 5', X was revved and the VirtualBox additions no longer work. During installation the following error is raised:

Of course it may fail... no one targets unreleased OSes :)

Ideally you release your bits in conjunction with the `gold release' This means you have to test your bits before the O/S is released. ;)

The 3.2.0 beta 1 might fix this. (Haven't had time to check yet.)

comment:5 Changed 4 years ago by pablo

Hi Michael,

I may be able to test it

I'm running 3.1.6' Can I easily [1] downgrade from 3.2.0 beta 1' should `3.2.X' have a problem? I use VBox to run Windows-only VPN software, among other things, so I can't afford to be out for too long. :)

[1] - what I consider `easy' would be copying .xml files, re-installing RPM's. Ideally, I couldn't afford any data-loss. :]

If that is a production machine, you might prefer to wait a bit, as the changes were backported to the 3.1 series, so any future 3.1 releases should contain them too.

comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by pablo

Hi Michael,

I'll wait for the next 3.1 drop and re-test.

Thx! -pablo

Hi Michael,

I upgraded to `3.1.8 r61349' and the problem still exists. I re-installed the Guest Additions (twice. :) and no mouse integration.

Please let me know what additional data you'd like me to gather and post.

Cheers, -pablo

Just getting an ISO to install it here and test. I am downloading the GNOME live CD - please let me know if you are using KDE.

comment:12 Changed 4 years ago by pablo

Hi Michael,

I'm using KDE.

I also have the .vdi I'm more than happy to bzip2 and make available. Uncompressed it's ~14 GiB.

Thank you!

I am running openSUSE 11.3 RC1 currently on 3.1.6 but have been up to VBox 3.2.4.

I believe the guest additions issue is actually connected to openSUSE using xorg v7.5 and I have yet to see that supported in the change log. VBox 3.2.0 did fix a similar issue with Fedora 13 which was using 7.4 (reported for version 3.1.6 but not fixed until v3.2.0)

VBox 3.2.6 additions work fine with openSUSE 11.3, closing.
