VirtualBox Won't install on Fedora 29. Same issue as bug 16038

Postby PaulKBSR » 1. Nov 2018, 19:28

Downloaded "VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.20_125813_fedora26-1.x86_64.rpm" and tried to install and got the following error:

['\n Problem: conflicting requests\n - nothing provides libvpx.so.4()(64bit) needed by VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.20_125813_fedora26-1.x86_64']

This is the same problem as reported in VirtualBox Bug 16038 with a different file. I think.

I tried many machines and found that you had the same problem.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1542884 . There is a Koji build for compat-libvpx4 for F28 ( https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/bui ... ID=1028650 ) which also works for me in F29 (by which I mean VirtualBox appears to install and work normally in F29 after installing this package).

Just did an upgrade from Fedora (guest) 28 to 29 in VirtualBox 5.2.22, and Linux (host) kernel 4.19.1 without any issue - it took a long time but usually the upgrade takes a lot longer than updates which also take a long time

The F29 build of VB 6.0.0 installs and appears to work fine without the compat-libvpx4 workaround. Thanks!

I'll wait for a second confirmation before marking this as [Solved] if you don't mind @robatino.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
