Do the current virtualbox packages hosted by openSUSE now provide usb
access?

AFAIK not, you still need the proprietary "Oracle VM VirtualBox
Extension Pack", as mentioned on
<https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads>.

Since this package contains code that is not compatible with GPL, it
can't be packaged along with the standard VB package. Even Oracle
themselves don't.

Is the extension pack usable with the openSUSE packages?

Yes, it is.

Tks, I will use openSUSE packages rather than the previous Oracle ones.
