Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Centos 5.6 host, selinux disabled On a headless server using VBoxManage with on GUI un-available.
$ sudo VBoxManage extpack install Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.10-72436.vbox-extpack [sudo] password for xxxxxx: 0%... Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to install "/home/orlando/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.10-72436.vbox-extpack": Extension pack 'Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack' is already installed. In case of a reinstallation, please uninstall it first
At this point why isn't an upgrade performed, as there is no other option and the GUI does that. I don't see the point in informing the user an uninstall is required, just ask to proceed and do it.
But anyway if I then do ...
$ sudo VBoxManage list extpacks Extension Packs: 1 Pack no. 0: Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack Version: 4.0.8 Revision: 71778 Description: USB 2.0 Host Controller, VirtualBox RDP, PXE ROM with E1000 support. VRDE Module: VBoxVRDP Usable: true Why unusable: $ sudo VBoxManage extpack uninstall --forced Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.8-71778.vbox-extpack 0%... Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to uninstall "Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.8-71778.vbox-extpack": No error message available!
So can't "upgrade". BTW I have tried without --forced first, but that didn't work either.
