Virtualbox module not loading


For the host I have:

$ pacman -Qs virtualbox local/virtualbox 6.0.4-1 Powerful x86 virtualization for enterprise as well as home use local/virtualbox-ext-oracle 6.0.4-1 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack local/virtualbox-guest-iso 6.0.4-1 The official VirtualBox Guest Additions ISO image local/virtualbox-host-dkms 6.0.4-1 VirtualBox Host kernel modules sources

The id at host should include group vboxusers for the user that starts virtual machines. Why do you use root at the host?

Remove the virtualbox-guest-modules and virtualbox-guest-utils from the host.

Note that virtualbox-guest-iso is optional and needed only for VMs that don’t have guest additions already, like Windows.

For the guest I have:

$ pacman -Qs virtualbox local/virtualbox-guest-dkms 6.0.4-1 VirtualBox Guest kernel modules sources local/virtualbox-guest-utils 6.0.4-1 VirtualBox Guest userspace utilities

The id at guest should include group vboxsf for the user running in the VM.

Couldn’t see what you have in guest.

Video appears in weird shades of pink

Some additional information…
I tested a video that shows up pink in firefox and it plays normally there.

Here is an example of a video that goes pink for chromium:

Edit: I turned on these chrome flags: “Override software rendering list,” “GPU rasterization,” and “Out of process rasterization” and videos play properly now.

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Warning [cannot open file {locale}-std] during kernel update

Reinstalling kernel went smooth after editing vconsole.conf and setting KEYMAP=ro_std

@joekamprad I guess sudo localectl set-keymap --no-convert ro_std would do the trick even better than just editing vconsole.conf (in case there are other places where the KEYMAP is being stored)

@manuel thanks for your input. your questions lead me in the right direction.
