install of virtualbox extensionpack fails on KDE
« on: 2014/04/10, 10:00:04 »
Hello dear virtualbox users,

the proprietary extensionpack only provides USB2, PXE and RDP capabilities. 

Installing over the menu: File / Global Settings / Extensionpack fails right after entering the root password in KDESU:
Code: [Select]
The installer failed with exit code 1: .

Errorcode:NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component:ExtPackManager
Interface:IExtPackManager {3295e6ce-b051-47b2-9514-2c588bfe7554}


As a workaround you can install from commandline:
Code: [Select]
# VBoxManage extpack install Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.3.10-93012.vbox-extpack
0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%
Successfully installed "Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack".


Have virtual fun with plenty of possibilities!

greetings
musca

Thx musca
Or as written in this thread  http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=4164.msg34973#msg34973  one could open a filemanager like dolphin as root and doubleclick extpack-file (ayla). Or open virtualbox as root once and install extpack (towo).

Hello der_bud,
devil tried those alternative methods yesterday and both failed.

In general your suggestions do work, but not in this case. It seems to be a bug concerning KDE and dbus.

Right, started as user, vbox does not accept the password it aks for if you klick on the ext-pack. Started as root, vbox crashes right away if clicking on the ext-pack. So vboxmanage seems to be the only way that works with 4.3.x and KDE.

solution: remove kdesu

Looks like kdesudo is the problem. I deleted it (still got kdesu) and everything went fine. Maybe you additionally have to edit this file:

Code: [Select]
$HOME/.kde/share/config/kdesurc
Look for sudo and change it in su
