[Resolved] VBOX Guest additions does not work with OEL7.4/OEL7.4UEK

Postby NickNeme » 11. Aug 2017, 02:30

Vbox Guest additions is missing vboxvideo drivers for X 1.19 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 7.4. As suggested on

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=84201 and
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=84217

installed Guest Additions 5.1.27 but that too failed to work.

What is the revision of the guest additions you installed? They have updated it to correct this issue.

Hi

I've tried OEL 7.4 with VBoxGuestAdditions_5.1.27-117460.iso and the resolution seems to be fixed. So it resizes automatically as it should.

Thanks

I tried VirtualBox 5.1.26 with with VboxGuestAdditions5_1_27_117460. Also Virtualbox5.1.27_117538 with 117538 GuestAdditions
Both fail with vboxvideo_drv problems; both GuestAdditions do not have vboxvideo_drv_119.

I upgraded to the latest non-UEK kernel (3.10.0-693.1.1) on VBOX 5.1.27.117538 (testbuild) ; automatic resize works perfectly. However it does not yet work with the UEK kernel 3.8.13-118.19.3.

Hi,

I have the same issue on OEL 7.4.
After the initial OS installation, it works, but when I update the OS, there's nothing I can do to get it working again.
Any ideas?

Same problem here. OEL 7.4 in Fedora 26. Initial installs went OK. After installed Guest Addition (5.1.26), VM screen went black after logged in. Can't do nothing.

The best I can tell at this point is there is a conflict with 3D acceleration Disable that and it should work ( albeit a bit slower ) until the DEVs have time to address it.

This problem has NOT been solved. The label "Resolved" is misleading. :mrgreen:

The OP's issue has been resolved. So, how exactly is the modified-after-it-was-resolved label misleading?

Sorry I must have missed something. But where can I find that says that the OP's issue has been resolved. Thanks.

Hi, I was running 5.1.28 on MacOS and the guest additions were not loading on OEL7.4/OEL7.4UEK. I tried the very last BETA2 and BETA3 r118015 to no avail. Kernel configuration invalid error message in the boxadd-setup.log file. Why is this marked as [Resolved]?
Linux version: Oracle Linux 7.4 Kernel version: 4.1.12-103.3.8.el7uek.x86_64.
Thanks

The OP marked this as resolved because as far as they were concerned it was resolved. Now others have taken over the original post and that is where your confusion comes in. They and you should have made a new post since this one was marked as resolved. Simple fix though. I will close this topic and then no new entries can be posted. Best thing for all since the DEVs will probably not even look at a resolved topic.

Oh and the OP resolved their issue by not using the uek kernel as clearly stated in their reply. I replied with a different statement that 3D is where the issue is and the DEVs will have to sort that out. Please read the entire thread.
