Then I downloaded 11.4 Build 1034-i586 and attempted to install it
as guest on Virtualbox 3.2.12, in this case it has been a worst
case since installation crashes after drivers loading.

Wonder if are there some workaround in order to install M6 on
Virtualbox PUEL.

None that I have found. My symptoms were a little different than
yours. After installing, the system would freeze during the first
reboot.The kernel prints "mounting mandatory file system", gets
"done for that" and hangs with 100% cpu. That occurs for both 32-
and 64-bit guests on an x86_64 11.3 host. I'm using VirtualBox 4.0.2
downloaded from Oracle.

I was able to install 11.4 M6 in a 32-bit version from the KDE Live
CD, but I never got there with the NET install.

The x86_64 M6 net install works fine here on 11.2 with VBox 4.0.2 from
Oracles repo.

Thanks for your comment,
I will try to update directly from Oracle since from
openSUSE_VirtualBox_PUEL repo, I have not noticed any updates.


Actually, 4.0.2 is already available on the openSUSE repos.


I'm still onto 11.2 BTW and zypper up not noticed updtaes.



You can download a single package from

Or simply add their repo and use $package_manager to get updates automatically


VirtualBox 4.0.2 is now available with openSUSE 11.2

Here is the link:


VirtualBox 4.0.2 comes with openSUSE 11.4 M6.
