I'm using tumbleweed and would like to install virtualbox, however it
depends on virtualbox-host-kmp-desktop version
4.0.4_k2.6.37.1_1.2-1.6.1 which in turn depends on kernel-desktop-base
version 2.6.37.6-0.5.1. However tumbleweed has kernel-desktop version
2.6.39.3-37.1 which means I'd need to downgrade my kernel to use
virtualbox. Could tumbleweed provide a version of virtualbox for the
newer kernels?

I'm using this kernel:
kernel-desktop-2.6.39.3-37.1.x86_64

I'm using this VirtualBox:
VirtualBox-4.0-4.0.12_72916_openSUSE114-1.x86_64

I'm running openSUSE Tumbleweed.
With that combo there's no need for supporting kmp RPMs

Same here w/o a problem

I only see two versions of virtualbox available: 4.0.4-1.6.1 and 4.0.4-1.2.3
Do I need to add another repository? The only tumbleweed repo I've got right
now is
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tumbleweed/standard/

The repo from virtualbox.org (the Sun version) is here:
http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/11.4/
Every now and then a new virtualbox version arrives there and comes in via zypper dup. So slick.

John
