Hi all,

Since the original VirtualBox 5.1.26 has vboxnet0 was missing, I installed
VirtualBox provided by openSUSE Leap 42.3.

I can't get the program to start up. I started from konsole and the
results appear below:

VirtualBox
VirtualBox: Error -10 in SUPR3HardenedMain!
VirtualBox: Effective UID is not root (euid=1000 egid=100 uid=1000 gid=100)

VirtualBox: Tip! It may help to reinstall VirtualBox.
mantrid  ~  QSettings::value: Empty key passed
QSettings::value: Empty key passed

Is there a workaround?

Roman,

I'm not sure why this is happening to you. On my system, I get

finger@linux-srm7:~/staging> VirtualBox &
[1] 3062
finger@linux-srm7:~/staging> Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile

finger@linux-srm7:~/staging>

At this point, the VB GUI is up and running as expected. That Qt WARNING appears to be harmless. The permissions on VB are

finger@linux-srm7:~/staging> ls -l /usr/bin/VirtualBox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1994 Jul 31 10:32 /usr/bin/VirtualBox

Anything different on your system>

Larry
