First of all, many thanks to Larry Finger for all his hard work. It must be frustrating
for him, but I really appreciate all his work at maintaining VirtualBox for openSUSE.
Second, I understand the issues with Oracle and their development process and attitude. If
you can use something else besides VirtualBox as Larry suggests, then do it. But the
problem is that most users still love VirtualBox. As the maintainer of the GeckoLinux
spins, I can say from experience that the vast majority of users expect VirtualBox
support, so although I hate it myself I basically have to deal with it and make sure it
works. It would be nice if issues like this were considered as blocking issues so that new
kernels don't appear in Tumbleweed until VirtualBox is known to work with them.
Fortunately, Larry's advice of sticking with the 5.12 kernel is an easy solution for
now, I'm glad there are no mismatches with the KMP version numbers.
