problem installing 5.2.0RC1 guest additions

Postby heitkergm » 30. Sep 2017, 21:14

Guest addition compilation issue:

/tmp/vbox.0/hgsmi_base.c: In function 'hgsmi_send_caps_info':
/tmp/vbox.0/hgsmi_base.c:99:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'AssertRC' [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration'
AssertRC(p->rc);
^
cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
make[2]: *** [/tmp/vbox.o/hgsmi_base.o] Error 1




This is for a CentOS guest. Occurred on a Win10 host and a macOS High Sierra host.

Same compilation problem for a Fedora 26 guest on a macOS High Sierra host.

Also, the RC1 guest addition package calls itself BETA3, not RC1.

But, unlike BETA3, this one does not install properly.

Same error with latest CentOS 7. Installed the latest 5.1 additions as a workaround.

The Beta 3 reference looks like a packaging error. If you download the separate RC1 iso it goes away.

Hmm no, I cannot confirm on Ubuntu Zesty:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@centos7 VBox_GAs_5.2.0]# ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing VirtualBox 5.2.0_RC1 Guest Additions for Linux........
VirtualBox Guest Additions installer
Removing installed version 5.2.0_BETA3 of VirtualBox Guest Additions...
Copying additional installer modules ...
Installing additional modules ...
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modules.
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Look at /var/log/vboxadd-setup.log to find out what went wrong
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Running kernel modules will not be replaced until the system is restarted
VirtualBox Guest Additions: Starting.


But I can confirm the compilation problem.

I'll confirm the build failure with both versions. Host: OSX Sierra Guest: Artix Linux (systemd-less fork of Arch)

UPDATE: Unsurprisingly, the BETA2 additions compile and work.
