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

@ElijahLynn, unless I'm missing something, it should "just work". You can learn more about the extension pack at https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch01.html#intro-installing

I hope it helps!

Thanks.

Are there any specific instructions here after install? I don't see the Extension showing up in vbox preferences under extensions. Should it "just work"?

Update: it appears that I needed to reboot for it to show up.

Thinking more about it, the guest-additions module fail to build problem isn't with this package, the problem is with the guest-additions not patched as part of AUR virtualbox-bin.

Your post install script fails.

Test build 139990 was deleted from server and since than package can't be built. Using Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.13-140091.vbox-extpack it builds and works fine.

UPD: Before the kernel panic on a frozen VM wakeup.

Seems like there is a new version or they simply removed it because the download link is broken.

Is there a reason why the virtualbox package doesn't propose the extension pack of the same version as an optional dependency and offers a warning or a blocker in relation to wrong versions? It seems a missed opportunity (at best) or, worse, a usability regression which causes unnecessary inconvenience and could be solved by available functionality in pacman/packages? Otherwise it would defeat the purpose of having a package for the extension pack?

From https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

Under section titled "VirtualBox 6.1.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack"

In italics "Please install the same version extension pack as your installed version of VirtualBox."

Extension Pack 6.1.13.X is for VirtualBox 6.1.13 which are both almost certainly test/alpha/beta releases of what will eventually be release 6.1.14. If you have VirtualBox 6.1.12-X installed, then you need extension pack 6.1.12 not 6.1.13 or any other later version.

The virtualbox version on arch is 6.1.12-4 https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/x86_64/virtualbox/

The version for the AUR extension pack is 6.1.13.139990-1

This is causing Virtualbox to not load VMs

Uninstalling this package and manually installing https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.12/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.12.vbox-extpack

fixes the problem..

just my 2 cents
