It isn't solved. I've run out of ideas.

[solved] Virtualbox quite suddenly can't access shared folder anymore

Ralf_Mardorf commented on 2019-07-27 17:50

Hi, a Windows 7 guest quite suddenly can't access a shared folder anymore. If I open the shared folder, I get a BlueScreen and Windows 7 immediately crashes and restarts, see aur-general. In the meantime I tested 3 different kernels and restored Windows 7 from a snapshot, as well as Windows 7 and ~/.VirtualBox/ from a backup. Windows doesn't provide useful information, but the VirtualBox logs mention "Failed to open "/dev/vboxdrvu", errno=13, rc=VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE", which seems to lead to a vboxdrv.rules issue. However, even after getting rid of the "Failed to open "/dev/vboxdrvu", errno=13, rc=VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE" message, by using vboxdrv.rules from the community package, the Windows guest still crashes, see aur-general.

No sound or internet with Virtualbox 6 (at least with ALSA and NAT AFAIK)

@dbermond Muchas Gracias! Already building it :-)

will there be an update to 6.0.6? my extensions already upgraded to 6.0.6 :-/

Latest Virtualbox doesn't play ALSA audio with Windows 8.1 Guest. This seems like a regression, downgrading to 5.0.40 seems to be the only solution.

Note: 6.0.0 VirtualBox (the console) would coredump when accessed via ssh -X and Win7 guests run --headless and accessed via rdesktop were unusable. Oracle released 5.2.24 today and building and downgrading resolved all problems. (5.2 branch will be supported through 2020) Also released today was 6.0.2 (I have not tried it yet). This problem was worked on the vbox-users mailing list, but no bug filed as of yet.

Your decision makes sense, but it breaks my workflow. Fortunately I even don't need to use NoExtract of pacman.conf, since /usr/local/bin is head of PATH.

$ ls -hAl /usr/bin/virtualbox*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Dec 31 15:46 /usr/bin/virtualbox -> ../../opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Dec 31 15:46 /usr/bin/virtualboxvm -> ../../opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBoxVM
$ echo $PATH | cut -d: -f1
$ ls -hAl /usr/local/bin/virtualbox 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 Dec 30 05:15 /usr/local/bin/virtualbox -> /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBoxVM

Guten Rutsch!
