Description Andrei Dziahel 2018-10-27 20:53:51 UTC

`zypper -v install virtualbox`

Expected: virtualbox is installed successfully

Instead: dependency error

> Problem: nothing provides kernel-uname-r = 4.18.14-1-default needed by virtualbox-host-kmp-default-5.2.18_k4.18.14_1-1.9.x86_64
>  Solution 1: do not install virtualbox-5.2.18-1.9.x86_64
>  Solution 2: break virtualbox-host-kmp-default-5.2.18_k4.18.14_1-1.9.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

This also affects virtualbox-guest-kmp-default, and in turn also virtualbox-guest-tools and virtualbox-guest-x11.
Comment 2 Larry Finger 2018-10-28 01:11:17 UTC
I just tested on my system and all packages reinstalled correctly for kernel 4.18.14. There seems to be a problem for kernel 4.18.18. I'm not certain why VB is not building correctly for that kernel.

I am finishing the tests for VB 5.2.20 and will be pushing it soon, likely tomorrow. Once that hits Factory, these problems should be resolved.

This seems to work OK with Tumbleweed 20181122.
Comment 4 Andrei Dziahel 2018-11-25 19:09:47 UTC
Totally forgot about this one, sorry. True, it started working after kernel rebuild in the next snapshot.
