Guest update notifications don't strip suffix

Reported by: debfx Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.0.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

When comparing the versions the guest additions should ignore the edition suffix.
If the version is really older it should strip the suffix in the notification text.

For example the guest additions in my Windows VM currently complain that I should update to 4.0.6_Ubuntu even though 4.0.6 is installed.

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

Found and fixed the issue; this should have been fixed within the next upcoming maintenance release of VirtualBox.

Please note that this then requires the new VirtualBox host version + Guest Additions.
