4.0.0-SunOS-r69151 Can't Install Extension Pack

Postby watersb » 23. Dec 2010, 07:26

It's exciting that 4.0.0 has hit a release. But I can't install the extension pack.

File -> Preferences -> Extensions -> (click on the icon to Add package) -> select Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.0-69151.vbox-extpack in File dialog
Install
Agree to the License Agreement
Password Required dialog: "Enter the password of root to run the application ... VBoxExtPackHelperApp ..."
I enter my password (note: root is a role, not a user, so I assume it wants a password for elevated privileges)
Failure dialog
exit code 3: embedded_su: Sorry
result code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)

I was able to get the extension pack to install by entering this command at a bash prompt:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
pfexec /opt/VirtualBox/amd64/VBoxExtPackHelperApp --stdout /tmp/VBoxExtPackHelper-r6zjis/stdout --stderr /tmp/VBoxExtPackHelper-r6zjis/stderr --elevated install --base-dir /opt/VirtualBox/ExtensionPacks --cert-dir /opt/VirtualBox/ExtPackCertificates --name 'Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack' --tarball /home/bwaters/Downloads/VirtualBox-4.0.0_RELEASE/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.0-69151.vbox-extpack


Note that you'd have to change that command for your own tmp dirs and path to the extension pack.

Shipping software would be lots of fun if it weren't for those dang users. But in this case I don't think it's (totally) my fault. Although I am often wrong about this.

You can also install the extension pack by issueing this, slightly shorter, command:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage extpack install Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.0.0-69151.vbox-extpack


Cheers,
