VirtualBox USB support un Suse 11 (x86_x64)


Hello,

On my old Suse 10.3 and VirtualBox 1.5 USB support worked.
After updating to Suse 11.0 and VBox 2.0 I get

Code:
Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.


Fehlercode:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x00004005)
Komponente:
Host
Interface:
IHost {489fb370-c227-4d43-9761-ceb28484fd9f}
Callee:
IMachine {1e509de4-d96c-4f44-8b94-860194f710ac}
my fstab look like this
Code:
usbfs   /proc/bus/usb   usbfs   defaults,devmode=0666   0 0
usbfs is mounted.

Any ideas? Thanks

RGummi

I think I have fixed it

fstab must look like this

Code:
usbfs   /proc/bus/usb   usbfs   auto,busgid=X,busmode=0775,devgid=X,devmode=0664  0  0

where X is the group id of the vboxuser group. You can get it by

cat /etc/group | grep vboxusers | cut -d : -f 3
on my side I also need to manually mount the usbfs via
mount usbfs

so I placed this line in the /etc/init.d/vboxdrv script in the start function

Code:
start()
{
	mount usbfs    
	begin_msg "Starting VirtualBox kernel module"
