Description Michal Nowak 2018-02-20 18:46:06 UTC
VirtualBox fails to start VM configured with VNC extension pack if libvncserver is not installed:

VBoxManage: error: Could not find the VirtualBox Remote Desktop Extension library
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component ConsoleWrap, interface IConsole

Installing libvncserver0 RPM package make the problem go away and VM starts just fine.
Comment 1 Larry Finger 2018-02-21 17:54:03 UTC
The fix is now building in Factory and will be sent on to TW and Leap 15.0. I will make the same change foe Leap 42.3.

Comment 3 Andreas Stieger 2018-02-25 18:56:42 UTC
Since this seems to be a non-default configuration and there is a documented work-around, I am tending towards collecting more fixes for the next maintenance update for Leap 42.3.

openSUSE-RU-2018:0849-1: An update that has two recommended fixes can now be installed.
