A user just contributed a script that downloads
and installs the extension
pack for VirtualBox. I would like to get the sense of VB users regarding
implementation of this script in the post-install routine for the openSUSE
I might be missing something, but the add-on You are supposed to install
the quest OS, aren't You? So If I install e.g. Windows (poke) in VB... I guess
the script wouldn't be able to install the VB add-ons on that guest Windows,
would it? So... I might be missing the point of it...? Otherwise, anything
simplifying getting guest add-ons to installed VM is fine. :-)
No, it's the extension pack for the host system with their own license that
you have to download from the Oracle Website in order to activate some features:
And I don't think having an automatic download from a third-party website is
something Oracle or the OpenSUSE users would appreciate.
Providing a way to ease the installation of the extension pack is fine
by me (although the current process didn't strike me as particularly
difficult), but I would definitely not call it automatically after the
installation of VBox itself. I'm sure I'm not the only one using VBox in
a professional setting: in this context, you have to be very careful
about sticking to the letter of the license.
Just my 2¢
