virtualbox for openSUSE 11.2

Postby rgloor » 12. Nov 2009, 10:17

Hi everybody

I just installed openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 (GM).
Now I couldn't find the virtualbox version for openSUSE 11.2.

When will the virtualbox for openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 be available?
What is recommended to be used with openSUSE 11.2 before this release is available?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Greetings from Switzerland,
Rolf

I'll also have to postpone the installation of openSUSE 11.2 till there is a VirtualBox rpm for it. :(

Please, create a rpm for the new version of openSUSE.

Thanks!!!

Did you try the rpm for 11.1? If yes, did you get any errors?

But anyway version for 11.2 would be better.
I'm waiting patiently.

I'm not able to use VBox on 11.2 either. Getting kernel driver issues. Can not use /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup to recompile driver.

/var/log/vbox-install.log shows the following:

Hello,

did you install kernel-syms? I had the same problem and after installing kernel-syms, VB runs fine under OpenSuse 11.2

I went through it.
found the problem.
need to do:
install KERNEL SOURCE,
enter in /usr/src/linux/ then
MAKE MENUCONFIG (AS ROOT)
and after:
MAKE....
It will take a YEAR, BUT will resolve.
after....
/etc/init.d/vboxdvr setup OK....

There are RPM packages of the 3.1.0 beta, which can be found in the Beta forum (here is the download page: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/3.1.0_BETA2/).
Read the Forum Posting Guide before opening a topic.

:(
I am running into the same problems as birdra, with vboxdrv not being created, and get exactly the same messages.

I do not feel like recompiling the kernel (the bonkoski solution) and wonder if there is a shorter way of making the PUEL version work on OpenSUSE 11.2.
I installed all the packages mentioned here (kernel symbols, devel and all), but still the autoconf.h file or the include/config directory do not exist.

Anyone any idea of what packages I need to install in order to get past this point without recompiling the kernel ? Or is there maybe a different 11.2 kernel available that will work straight out of the box ?

Try this to get all dependencies:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
zypper in  -t pattern devel_kernel


Then try to install.

I just installed 3.1.4 on my 11.2X64 install with no problems. I just clicked on the link to the rpm and selected install package. Have been running VBox on 11.2 for several months now. There is a link on the VBox download section for suse 11.2,11.2.

If you are having compiling problems you have dependency issues. You have to install make and gc in 11.2, and there are some others, kernelsysms and something else. Look around the forum and you will find the list. Or search for every post on my username and you will find it in one of them. Sorry, but I don't remember it now.

Get the dependencies fixed and you should be ready to rox with VBox.

:D
Got it !
First I had a look at the openSUSE site :
http://en.opensuse.org/VirtualBox_installation
and found out that I did not have the xalan-c and xerces-c packages installed.
Once this was OK I reinstalled VirtualBox, but it still failed. As before, part of the message was :
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.

only this time it worked (it did not before).

Another try of "/etc/rc.d/vboxdrv setup' now showed a completely different error message : all my source packages were for kernel 2.6.31.12 while I had a 2.6.31.5 kernel running.
So I used yast to install the 2.6.31.12 kernel, rebooted the PC, ran the '/etc/rc.d/vboxdrv setup' thing again and guess what : It worked !!!

Which means I have virtualbox installed now. Cannot wait to start playing around with it.
