Well, the commit of "Add patch for linux 5.11" should do it. You were one step ahead. I just built from the teestbuild which incorporates the patch. (I am quite pleasantly surprised you already had it covered) Now if we can just get Oracle to fix the guest issue with 5.10+, we will be is great shape.

@drankinatty I have no problems building the virtualbox kernel modules with latest 5.11.1 kernel. Works fine for me.

Fun continues. vboxnetflt fails to build with 5.11. Bug: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20198 The testbuilds https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Testbuilds as of revision 142917 allows 5.11 vboxnetflt module to build on Arch. However, Arch host/Arch Guest, Guest will fail to boot with Kernel Panic for kernels after 5.9. Bug is months old and still unresolved https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20055

6.1.18-1 bug can't select ISO file in KIO Open dialog is gone

Any luck with 6.1.18 that came out on 1/12/21? Note, I built from 6.1.18 and the Archlinux Host is fine. However, attempting to update the Archlinux guest to 5.10 succeeds in installing the Linux_Guest_Additions, but on reboot a Kernel Panic occurs. This has been an continual issue with Linux 5.10 guests. (make a snapshot before you try) Reverting the guest to Linux 5.9.14 and all is good.

See: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/20055

@ElijahLynn This package is not the virtualbox extension pack. You can find the extension pack here. The package description already states what differentiates it from the repository one: "Oracle branded non-OSE".

Appreciate that @Kr1ss. I read that a bit and see it is basically the "VirtualBox Extension Pack" which according to https://www.nakivo.com/blog/how-to-install-virtualbox-extension-pack/, says:

  • Support for USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices
  • Host webcam pass-through
  • VirtualBox Remote Desktop Protocol (VRDP)
  • Disk image encryption with AES algorithm
  • Intel PXE Boot ROM

Would be good if somehow this package could put that in a description of sorts to distinguish the two because as an outsider, I had no idea.

@ElijahLynn basically the package in [community] provides you the fully free and open source edition, while this one here is the Oracle branded one, containing some proprietary extensions. (See §1 in the licensing FAQ)

What is the difference between virtualbox-bin AUR and https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/virtualbox/?
