Hi,

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
package.

Thanks, Larry for taking care of that. On systems, that use the extension
pack, it's always a nuisance to download and install it manually, especially
on remote systems. Forgetting it results in unfunny operational errors.

# from my cheat sheet:
wget
https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.4/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.4.vbox-extpack
VBoxManage extpack install --replace
Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.4.vbox-extpack

How do you detect, that an extension pack was installed before?

Pete
