TW 20181022: Virtualization/virtualbox is uninstallable
Last modified: 2018-11-25 19:09:47 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.
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.
Totally forgot about this one, sorry. True, it started working after kernel rebuild in the next snapshot.
