Bug#440552: verify?

Patrick Winnertz-4
Hello,

Can you please purge everything which belongs to virtualbox* from your
system and install everything completly new?

Does then the error still exist?
I tried to verify this on my own machine but wasn't successfull.
udev is reloaded correctly and the dev belongs to root:vboxusers on my
machine.

Greetings
Winnie

In my case, I didn't have anything installed prior to installing
virtualbox-ose*, and I'm able to reproduce this.

kibi@erwin:~$ uname -a
Linux erwin 2.6.22-1-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 23 12:43:14 UTC 2007 x86_64
GNU/Linux
kibi@erwin:~$ ls -l /dev/vboxdrv
crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 62 2007-09-08 10:11 /dev/vboxdrv


> Does then the error still exist?

So, yes.

kibi@erwin:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart
Stopping the hotplug events dispatcher: udevd.
Starting the hotplug events dispatcher: udevd.
kibi@erwin:~$ ls -l /dev/vboxdrv
crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 62 2007-09-08 10:11 /dev/vboxdrv

In case it matters:
ii  udev                                0.114-2
ii  virtualbox-ose                      1.5.0-dfsg2-1
ii  virtualbox-ose-source               1.5.0-dfsg2-1

Cheers,

Thanks for the informations,

Can you please look into /etc/udev/rules.d/ if there is a file which
belongs to virtualbox-ose ?

dpkg -L virtualbox-ose | grep udev

and if it exists there, can you please cat it and give me the content? This
is quite strange since It works on my system (and on some other systems
without any problems here).

Greetings
Winnie

I have that file (I din't do the tests you told me cause I had no time
yet, and now somebody else has the same problem).

the files contains(with the package name virtualbox, no -ose, version
1.4.0-):

KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vboxdrv", OWNER="root", GROUP="vboxusers",
MODE="0660"

Seems to look quite well...

(will check everything with the new 1.5.0 OSE sources these days...
maybe that also solves my problem with being unable to run X in VM's)

Henning

I did that(upgrade to virtualbox-ose 1.5.0.*) now.

despite some other guy reported to have the problem with 1.5.0, for me
it looks like the device file is created with the right group ownership now.

(and x runs fine now, too)

Oops, I should have told you that first.

kibi@erwin:~$ cat !$
cat /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_virtualbox-ose.rules
KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vboxdrv", OWNER="root", GROUP="vboxusers",
MODE="0660"

> dpkg -L virtualbox-ose | grep udev

kibi@erwin:~$ dpkg -L virtualbox-ose | grep rules
/etc/udev/rules.d
/etc/udev/rules.d/z60_virtualbox-ose.rules

I'm no udev expert, but that sounds quite good to me. I wondered about
the “==” and tried “=” instead, but not better.

Cheers,
