Why this package in your repository ($repo/$arch) is outdated?

$ pacman -Sl seblu | grep virtualbox
seblu virtualbox-ext-oracle 5.0.20-1

I appreciate your comment but it works perfectly for me since years.

I appreciate the attempts to "shrink" the extpack file, but VirtualBox isn't actually able to import it after the repacking. (In fact I don't think it has worked in the last *year* or so.) The install process always fails with:

VBoxManage: error: RTVfsFsStrmNext failed: VERR_TAR_UNSUPPORTED_PAX_TYPE

It seems that VirtualBox only understands --format=gnu and --format=ustar, *not* the default 'pax' format. (The original file uses GNU tar format.)

I am the current maintainer of virtualbox-bin in AUR.
As virtualbox-bin and virtualbox-ext-oracle are related (a newer version of virtualbox-bin without an updated virtualbox-ext-oracle will not work), may I suggest making eachother co-maintainer?

@mabra: 'fakeroot' is a member of the package group 'base-devel', which is a prerequisite for building packages. Therefore it is not necessary to specify it as a build dependency.

Dependeny to 'fakeroot' is wether checked nor mentioned!

It is now actually out-of-date, as the newly-packaged VirtualBox 5.0.10 complains about the 5.0.8 extension pack.

Sorry for flagging out-of-date, pamac hadn't checked for updates and I missed the last updated time.

Oh right, I'm sorry I miss read it when pacman installed. Sorry my bad.

@hugao Not much point, virtualbox in community is still out-of-date. Although virtualbox-bin in aur is. But how many are using it? No votes.
