virtualbox 2.0.0 on arch -- USB error

hello,

trying to install virtualbox 2.0.0 (puel) from sun's site.  everything proceeds fine, but then when i am ready to begin installing XP, i first look at "preferences" in the file menu and the following error pops up:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Failed to access the USB system.

Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.

Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x00004005)
Component:
Host
Interface:
IHost {489fb370-c227-4d43-9761-ceb28484fd9f}
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

note that i am able to mount and use USB devices on the linux side with no issues.  i have not created a group for usb nor added anything to /etc/fstab for usb by hand.

does anyone know how to work around this?

Re: virtualbox 2.0.0 on arch -- USB error

just put that line in /etc/fstab and run mount -a

none      /proc/bus/usb usbfs     auto,busgid=108,busmode=0775,devgid=108,devmode=0664 0 0

btw. next time use virtualbox_bin from aur and let pacman managed files.


Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: virtualbox 2.0.0 on arch -- USB error

thanks, that worked as stated.

btw, i looked in AUR yesterday but didn't see anything for virtualbox 2.0.0.  i must have missed it as there is a (popular evidently) package there with designation 2.0.0-2.  would installing the AUR version via pacman have put the line in fstab?  since i haven't even installed xp yet i can always remove the package and reinstall from aur...

He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.
