vbox kernel modules not getting installed on openSUSE 12.1 using systemd

Reported by: Freigeist Owned by:
Component: host support Version: VirtualBox 4.1.4
Keywords: systemd openSUSE 12.1 Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


openSUSE 12.1 now uses systemd by default as a replacement for sysvinit.

When using systemd - after installing a new kernel or a new version of virtualbox - entering

"/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup"

in a console to reinstall the vbox kernel modules results in the following error message:

"Unknown operation setup"

and the vbox kernel modules do not get installed.

No log file included since there is no entry about this problem in the log file.

Thank you,

+1 this bug. Also, VBox guest additions do not work on ANY Linux guest system using SystemD. I am surprised the devs haven't looked at this bug. When I try to install the additions in a Linux guest system using SystemD, I get the error message "Unable to determine your Linux distribution."

VirtualBox 4.2.10 installs fine on OpenSUSE 12.2. The kernel modules are automatically built during installation and they will get loaded during boot. '/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup' works as well. I did not try the Guest Additions on OpenSUSE 12.2 yet.

And it works for OpenSUSE 12.2 guests here as well.
