There is no version dependency on this package on purpose! You could read comments back from 2011 to understand why.

@reliveyy Please read the Arch Linux repo news here:

I installed this pack and got two error messages in the end:

:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/1) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...
error: missing 'dmxproto' dependency for 'libdmx'
error: missing 'xf86dgaproto' dependency for 'libxxf86dga'

But when I test it with VBoxManage list extpacks, I got some expected results:

Extension Packs: 1
Pack no. 0:   Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack
Version:      6.1.0
Revision:     135406
Description:  Oracle Cloud Infrastructure integration, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Host Controller, Host Webcam, VirtualBox RDP, PXE ROM, Disk Encryption, NVMe.
VRDE Module:  VBoxVRDP
Usable:       true
Why unusable:

I have no idea about the meaning of the error messages.

@fukawi2 thank you, that works

@rogierschouten Running makepkg -cfi twice worked for me. I had to manually install the extension pack using the GUI afterwards though.

When installing, I get this error:

With the update to Virtualbox 6.1 from official repos this package installation works again for me.

I'm getting same as @Raymo111. Reverting back to old version.

@djnightchild Ok, good to know.

This is a bug on the original source as well, we need to wait for Oracle to fix this.

error: command failed to execute correctly

I'm getting this error when I makepkg.
