Getting an error building this at the "Starting Prepare..." step:

bsdtar: Error opening archive: Failed to open '/home/ryan/.cache/yay/virtualbox-beta-bin/src/' ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare(). Aborting... error making: virtualbox-beta-bin

Thanks for adopting! There is a common practice to switch to stable version in case of absence of beta one.

@xiaoliniess please adopt the package

The last line permission fix: chmod 0755 "${pkgdir}/${_installdir}"/{VBox{Headless,Net{AdpCtl,DHCP,NAT},SDL,VolInfo},VirtualBox}

should be changed to: chmod 4755 "${pkgdir}/${_installdir}"/{VBox{Headless,Net{AdpCtl,DHCP,NAT},SDL,VolInfo},VirtualBoxVM}

VirtualBox needs these binaries to be setuid. But "VirtualBox" is the qt ui binary which can't run as root. "VirtualBoxVM" is the actual binary needs setuid.

Got this error after installing and restarting my Archlinux installation:

"Effective UID is not root (euid=1000 egid=985 uid=1000 gid=985) (rc=-10)

Please try reinstalling VirtualBox.

where: SUPR3HardenedMain what: 2 VERR_PERMISSION_DENIED (-10) - Permission denied."

So this PITA bug is not fixed in virtualbox-beta-bin

@Yosh @FredBezies Should be fixed in RC1

FredBezies commented on 2018-12-12 15:30

Still getting this message: "Qt FATAL: FATAL: The application binary appears to be running setuid, this is a security hole."

How to fix it this PITA bug?
