There is no version dependency on this package on purpose! You could read comments back from 2011 to understand why.

FWIW this package builds perfectly for me now. Perhaps the certificate was fixed? In any case, IMO the out-of-date flag can be removed.

Guys, URL stays download.virtualbox.org, as I saw it on virtualbox.org. Where did you get changes to download.oracle.com?

I had to change the source URL to:

https://download.oracle.com/virtualbox/$pkgver/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-$pkgver.vbox-extpack

to solve this issue:

curl: (60) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name 'download.virtualbox.org' More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above. ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.6/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.0.6.vbox-extpack Aborting...

The download link changed. It appears to be https://download.oracle.com/virtualbox/6.0.6/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.0.6.vbox-extpack now.

Yes, please add a version dependency. This updated to 6.0.6 while Virtualbox remained on 6.0.4, breaking my install and forcing me to manually uninstall and reinstall the downgraded extension pack.

Will be possible change dependency from depends=('virtualbox') to depends=("virtualbox=$pkgver") to force same version? Thanks.

It installed for me just now even though I'm using kernel 4.19

According to the official source for virtualbox, the current version is 6.0.0. I believe this package is incorrectly flagged as out-of-date as of 2019-01-07.
