@joerg-krause AUR helpers are not supported. Please use makepkg.

No malicious code on this PKGBUILD, it's just extracting the main source file.

The Aura package manager fails to build this package to avoid potentially malicious code:

sudo aura -Ax virtualbox-bin
aura >>= Determining dependencies...

Romario74, see the "Update" added to my original comment. I noticed that the extension pack needed to be reinstalled already before you replied. However, there's still an issue displayed for one guest's settings, even while the guest seems to be usable. After doing some further testing virtualbox-bin 6.1.4-2 seems not to work when booted to the real-time patched kernel 5.6.2, it seems to work when booted to the real-time patched kernel 4.19.106. "Seems", since I only made short tests and those failed when booted to the kernel 5.6.2, but worked when booted to the kernel 4.19.106. Now I'll try to backup two tablets with the Windows 7 and with the Windows 10 guest, while booted into 5.6.2-arch1-2 with "threadirqs". Until now the Windows 7 guest works. If I don't report anything else within the next hours, it continued to work without failure and the Windows 10 guest worked, too.

You have to reinstall the extension pack. This is what gives you USB support for your VMs. No need to restore from backup. And thanks for the virtualbox update, works fine with kernel 5.6.

A self-build real-time patched kernel 5.6.2-rt1 as well as 5.6.2-arch1-2 from Testing, with virtualbox-bin 6.1.4-2, trying to start a Windows 10 or Windows 7 guest fails with "Implementation of the USB 2.0 controller not found!" The same happens for a self-build real-time patched 4.19.106-rt46. After downgrading to virtualbox-bin 6.1.4-1, the self-build real-time patched kernel 4.19.106-rt46, that could be used before the upgrade to virtualbox-bin 6.1.4-2, still results in the same error. Even while I'm loading and unloading the modules on demand, I restarted the machine to no avail. FWIW all modules were build. The vbox and vbox-prev files do only contain different timestamps, anything else doesn't differ. The snapshots were not touched at all. Since it worked a few hours before I upgraded virtualbox-bin, nothing else was upgraded, I'll restore the guests from backups or what ever else might be broken.

Update: There was no need to restore from a backup, I just needed to reinstall the extension pack, so perhaps it even works with kernel 5.6. I can't test it now. Both Windows guests can be used again, but an invalid setting for the Windows 7 guest is detected, it's just not mentioned what setting.

@Romario74 I've added a patch for linux 5.6.

dkms modules do not build with kernel 5.6

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.
