Unfortunately in my case the versions that works causes kernel panics.

Those versions work:

@nursoda At the time of this writing, VirtualBox 6.1.13 is not yet released by upstream. Not even the repository package is updated to 6.1.13.

For the time being, could you please update to 6.1.13 – virtualbox-ext-oracle is updated already and breaks virtualbox-bin due to 12 vs 13 version mismatch. I know that I can downgrade that but … I try to stay up-to-date on all packages ;) Anyway: Does 6.1.13 solve the Kernel 5.8 issue?

Upgrading linux to 5.8 will break virtualbox-bin 6.1.12.

I've prepared a patch for linux 5.8 (based on the repository package) but apparently it modifies the modules version, since it causes a 'module version mismatch' error when running a virtual machine.

So a patch for the dkms sources will not be sufficient. We need an update from upstream supporting linux 5.8. Based on the release history, it should not take too much long.

Update: VirtualBox Ticket #19719

Hi, after installing 6.1.12-1 + extension pack a Windows 10 guest can be used with the new guest additions, but a Windows 7 guest doesn't boot anymore, after installing the guest additions. Starting Windows 7 in safe mode works, but doesn't find a solution. I restored Windows 7 from a snapshot and tried again. The Windows 7 guest failed to boot again after installing the guest additions. Does anybody experience the same issue?

@joerg-krause AUR helpers are not supported. Please use makepkg.

No malicious code on this PKGBUILD, it's just extracting the main source file.

The Aura package manager fails to build this package to avoid potentially malicious code:
