Hi all,

I can't get to set USB in VirtualBox OSE? Is it possible at all? In the
Settings USB is greyed out. I think I read once that USB support is
of the differences between the the OSE and PUEL versions of VBox.
But I
could not get the latter to work at all. (oS 11.2 KDE 4.3.4)

Thanks for any hint,


As you noticed, USB support is not available with OSE. It is available
with the PUEL version from Sun.

I used the instructions from
virtualbox-3-1-2-on-opensuse-11-2/ to install Virtual Box on my
opensuse 11.2 64 bit install.

Don't forget to turn on the USB filter in VirtualBox settings.
