Re: [opensuse] 13.1 Virtualbox Stopped Working??? Looks like update killed it, but which? How to fix?
But you say you have updated from version 4 to version 5.

Something may have changed there. I never used 4, but version 5 on Windows also wants that extension pack.

You may simply need or want to fix that extension pack to get it working.

But then again, maybe you are correct and a Windows "version 4" image is going to give trouble in a Windows "version 5" image.

However, then, at that point, I don't think it should be /VirtualBox/ that is complaining.

At that point it would be /Windows/ that misses the required driver.

Which is doubtful.

That's quite normal, as I remember (I've not used OS rpms for VBox for
quite some time, rather direct download from vbox site). USB support
requires VBox extension pack. It is not rpm, you need to install it
either through VBox GUI or using command line (VBoxManager or
something like that). Each time you update vbox you have to re-install
extension pack, corresponding to VBox version.

Thanks Mark,

That's what has got me so darn confused. I have used USB-2.0 with
this install, but before 13.1 I always used rpms and
then would install the guest_additions and then do the old, e.g:

$ sudo VBoxManage extpack install --replace \

Oh crap -- could it be I haven't used windows since my 11.4 install
prior to 13.1? I wonder if that has been the issue all along. Damn,
same laptop, same desktop, but that may have been it. If there is no
way I could have used the USB-2.0 interface with the openSuSE rpms,
then it has been since 11.4 since I fired up windows.

Sorry for the noise...
