@kragol, thanks for the report. Updated the package to version 5.1.38.

I get compilation errors when trying to build the package. It looks like this could be a incompatibility with the current QT version (5.11.1).

First, I get a few occurences of this error (all within the same UIGlobalSettingsProxy.cpp file):

/home/[REDACTED]/.cache/pacaur/virtualbox51/src/VirtualBox-5.1.36/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/src/settings/global/UIGlobalSettingsProxy.cpp:40:55: error: invalid use of incomplete type ‘class QButtonGroup’
     QButtonGroup *pButtonGroup = new QButtonGroup(this);

/usr/include/qt/QtWidgets/qabstractbutton.h:53:7: note: forward declaration of ‘class QButtonGroup’
 class QButtonGroup;

And then this one:

/home/[REDACTED]/.cache/pacaur/virtualbox51/src/VirtualBox-5.1.36/src/VBox/Frontends/VirtualBox/src/settings/global/UIGlobalSettingsProxy.cpp:49:97: error: no matching function for call to ‘UIGlobalSettingsProxy::connect(QButtonGroup*&, const char [33], UIGlobalSettingsProxy*, const char [19])’

Has anyone else experienced the same issue ?

Context: I am trying to install this version because I'm experiencing weird issues with the 5.2 in the main repos (virtual hdd disconnecting randomly after less than a minute).

@meshy I can't repeat the error. I think problem is your settings of system. Sorry couldn't help.

Thanks for the quick response, rdnvndr.

When I run pacman -Qs virtualbox, I get no output at all.

Pacman exits with code 1. Running the same command against an installed package shows output.

Please show the output of the command:

pacman -Qs virtualbox

I do not have the virtualbox package installed, but installation fails with the message:

error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: virtualbox51 and virtualbox are in conflict
