Starting the non OSE version, I get a message stating that I can't use USB2 unless I install extension pack.
(id error : ExtPackNoEHSCI)
This is here:http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/virtualbox/downloads/index.html#extpack
I wonder if I would have better install this, ask for a package for it, or just install the OSE version ?
And also I wonder about the use of some of the related packages we have ?
=> task-virtualbox 3.1.4 : do we still need it ?
=> dkms 3.2.12 : the 2 packages (is that what is needed so to get vbox with the vbox additions working fine ?)
=> x11 drivers mouse and video : version number 3.2.12, works fine in virtualbox non OSE 4.0.4, Ok for me.
Now what are the possibilities ? I suppose with the extension pack for 4.0.4 (404 error ?
) we can have USB 2 controller working, which could be good to run a usb printer from within a virtual Windows when this printer has no driver available for linux.
And with the OSE version as we do have vbox addition, we can manager to share the mouse, and a folder between a host and a guest.
Please let me know if there is something missing in my statement, and if there are possibilities I didn't see, as well as telling me if the extension pack could be in the repos provided a request would be done, or if it should be installed independantly from the distribution.
