Bug#440773: forwarding to upstream

forwarded 440773 [hidden email]
thanks

Forwarded this bug to upstream.. maybe this is fixed within 1.5.0 ?
Can you try to verify this issue with 1.5.0 ?

Greetings

First thing I noticed with 1.5.0 was that it doesn't support the .xml
file that was created by 1.4.0:

Could not load the settings file '/home/pabs/.VirtualBox/Machines/winders/winders.xml' (VERR_OPEN_FAILED).
FATAL ERROR: Required attribute 'hostMode' was not provided
Location: '/home/pabs/.VirtualBox/Machines/winders/winders.xml', line 45, column 77.

Result Code:
0x80004005
Component:
Machine
Interface:
IMachine {31f7169f-14da-4c55-8cb6-a3665186e35e}

After deleting the following lines in that file, it worked fine.

      <Uart>
        <Port IOBase="1016" IRQ="4" enabled="false" server="true" slot="0"/>
        <Port IOBase="1016" IRQ="4" enabled="false" server="true" slot="1"/>
      </Uart>

Breaking compatibility like that isn't very good.

Anyway vertical scrolling works now. Horizontal scrolling doesn't work
in notepad or explorer, but I don't know if that is a problem with
virtualbox or those windows programs. I don't really care about
horizontal scrolling anyway, may as well close this bug in 1.5.0-dfsg-1

Also, it tries to download ...1.5.0_OSE... instead of ...1.5.0...:

http://www.virtualbox.org/download/1.5.0_OSE/VBoxGuestAdditions_1.5.0_OSE.iso

instead of:

http://www.virtualbox.org/download/1.5.0/VBoxGuestAdditions_1.5.0_OSE.iso

BTW, Debian has nsis and mingw, so there should be no reason for the
Windows guest services to not be available, other than the *extremely*
nasty licence that they are under. I'd suggest that the Debian version
of VirtualBox OSE should warn that they are non-free before installing
them. Have you asked upstream about this licence? (I'm not seeing any
README.Debian notes about this either).

Also, are there guest additions for Linux? and if so will you be
packaging them?

1.4.0 used a syntax which was compatible with 1.5.0 but during development
this syntax was broken (which i didn't know), therefore this section has
to be deleted.

I guess I'll add this into the README.Debian.

Thx.... This is fixed now.

Yes, I'm working on this issue: See #440517.
