Cannot build guest additions on SLES 15SP3

Postby dkaelbling » 23. Jun 2021, 19:28

I have a clean SLES 15SP3 client (real SLES, not OpenSUSE) running in VirtualBox 6.1.22 on a macOS Big Sur host. Attempts to install the guest additions fail. I randomly tried using the VBoxVGA graphics controller too, but that didn't make a difference. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Building the main Guest Additions 6.1.22 module for kernel 5.3.18-57-default.

I installed gcc, make, and the kernel header files (kernel-devel package). I don't see any other guest prereqs -- did I miss something? I have many other VMs for other operating systems where the additions install successfully, so I don't think it's a host issue.

I'm no Linux guru, regrettably. All I know is there's prerequisites. We'll have to wait for a Linux expert to come along.

SLES 15 SP3 is just 5 days old.
VirtualBox 6.1.22 was released almost two months ago.
Your Linux is probably a very new kernel which is not compatbile with Vbox 6.1.22.
