* Tue Dec 24 2019 Larry Finger <>
  - Version update to 6.1.0 (released December 10 2019 by Oracle)
    - Fixes bsc#1132102.
    - Removed file "set_graphics_type.patch" as the problem is fixed upstream.
    This is a major update. The following major new features were added:
    - Implemented support for importing a virtual machine from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
    - Extended support for exporting a virtual machine to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, allowing the creation
    of multiple virtual machines without re-uploading. Also added option to export a VM to the cloud using the more efficient
    variant "paravirtialized", and to specify free-form tags for cloud images
    - Virtualization core: Support for nested hardware-virtualization on Intel CPUs (starting with 5th generation Core i,
    codename Broadwell), so far tested only with guest running VirtualBox
    - Graphics: New style 3D support (with VBoxSVGA and VMSVGA) remains, old style 3D support (with VBoxVGA) has been completely removed
    - Shared Clipboard: Implemented experimental support for file transfers (Windows hosts/guests only at the moment).
    Needs to be enabled via VBoxManage (disabled by default). In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added:
    In addition, the following items were fixed and/or added:
    - Virtualization core: Drop recompiler, i.e. running VMs now needs a CPU supporting hardware virtualization
    - Runtime: Works now on hosts with many CPUs (limit now 1024)
    - Appliance and Cloud Import: Add field for defining firmware type (not part of OVF spec and thus manual in the Appliance case,
    for OCI it is automatically taken from the instance information)
    - GUI: Improved the VISO creation and file manager dialogs
    - GUI: Virtual machine list of VirtualBox Manager was improved. Machine groups are now more obvious visually and VM
    search functionality has been improved. Global Tools element can now be pinned in place, to avoid scrolling it with rest of machine list
    - GUI: Virtual machine details pane is now extended with embedded editors for selected VM attributes, allowing user to edit them
    on-the-fly byi clicking corresponding hyper-links without opening VM settings dialog
    - GUI: Details pane provides more complete information
    - GUI: Internal medium enumeration routines were optimized to reduce the load and optimize the performance in cases when
    user have lots of media registered. Also, we again allowed to add existing media (and create new) via Virtual Media Manager
    - GUI: More consistent medium selection (both showing known images and allowing to select using the file picker)
    - GUI: VM storage settings page was adjusted a bit in usability regard. User is now allowed to change controller bus type
    and can move attachments between the controllers by using drag and drop
    - GUI: Storage and Network settings pages bug-fixes and usability optimization
    - GUI: Added a new soft (virtual) keyboard enabling arbitrary keyboard input to guests, including multimedia keys
    - GUI: Fixed crash in cloud related wizards when accessibility functionality was enabled
    - GUI: Show VM CPU load as part of status bar CPU indicator
    - GUI: Improved and extended the Session Information dialog
    - GUI: Fixed/improved mouse pointer scaling
    - GUI: Some issues related to mouse integration cursor scaling were addressed (bug #14366), more to go
    - GUI: Fix and unify geometry save/restore in various dialogs
    - GUI: Added the missing restriction options for disabling new functionality such as the VISO creator
    - GUI: Popup messages mouse click fix
    - Graphics: Remove 3D support for VBoxVGA (old one deprecated with 6.0)
    - Graphics: Additional texture format support on Windows host
    - Graphics: Improved fix for flickering on Windows host
    - Input: Added support for horizontal scrolling in the PS/2 mouse device using the IntelliMouse Explorer protocol.
    Note that this support is automatically used by Linux guests but not by Windows guests
    - vboximg-mount: Experimental support for direct read-only access to NTFS, FAT and ext2/3/4 filesystems inside a disk
    image without the need for support on the host
    - vboximg-mount: Now also available on Linux host
    - Storage: Experimental support for virtio-scsi, for both hard disks and optical drives (including boot support in BIOS)
    - Storage: For optical drive emulation fix empty host drive crash
    - USB: Improvements for EHCI controller implementation
    - USB: Filter can now specify port path, uniquely identifying a port in a system
    - NAT: Fix TFTP OACK response, send only if request has options
    - NAT Network: Use non-blocking sockets on Linux for accepted incoming connections (port forwarding)
    - PCnet-ISA: Added new network adapter type, currently CLI only
    - Audio: Allow changing the host audio backend while the VM is in saved state
    - ACPI: Report NVMe controller
    - VGA: Improve hardware and BIOS compatibility
    - VBoxSVGA/VMSVGA: Support YUV2 and related texture formats with hosts using OpenGL (macOS and Linux),
    which accelerates video playback when 3D is enabled by delegating the color space conversion to the host GPU
    - VBoxSVGA/VMSVGA: Several drawing fixes for the 3D case
    - VMSVGA 3D: Fixed OpenGL compressed textures
    - VBoxManage: More cloud functionality coverage, e.g. starting a cloud instance
    - VBoxManage: As part of the guest control feature support moving multiple source files/directories to a target directory
    - Guest Control/VBoxManage: Added support for specifying multiple sources when renaming guest files
    - VBoxManage: Show "unrestricted guest" and "nested HW virtualization" CPU features when listing the host information
    - API: Reduce the amount of leftovers from Move VM function
    - Shared Clipboard: Implemented experimental support for file transfers for Linux hosts on Windows guests (disabled by default)
    - SMBIOS: Store system UUID in little endian format which is the default for new VMs, while existing VMs stick to the old VirtualBox
    behavior of storing them in big endian format for backwards compatibility to avoid breaking the activation status of Windows VMs
    - VBoxSDL frontend: Fixed running on Windows hosts
    - Linux host: Improve vboxweb systemd service dependency information
    - Linux host: Drop PCI passthrough, the current code is too incomplete (cannot handle PCIe devices at all), i.e. not useful enough
    - Linux host and guest: Support Linux 5.4 (bug #18945)
    - Linux host and guest: Force disabling of kernel module signing during build (user can do it afterwards)

    - Windows Guest Additions: Restore VHWA functionality for VBoxSVGA
    - Windows guest: DXVA implementation for WDDM driver
    - Documentation: Updated supported host operating systems, added few new manual pages (more to come later)
    - EFI: Switch to newer firmware code base and add NVRAM support, should improve compatibility with OSes significantly
    - EFI: Added support for booting from APFS
    - EFI: Added support for non-standard SATA and NVMe boot device paths created by OS X

  - The VirtualBox packages for both Tumbleweed and Leap 15.1 are now derived from the sources in Factory;
    however, the underlying kernels are very different in that vboxvideo.ko is built-into the TW kernel,
    thus the package did not try to build that module. The result is that Leap 15.1 guests have only 640x480
    resolution (boo#1132439). These changes conditionally turn building of the kernel module back on. As TW
    does not need the module, it is only built for Leap 15.1.

    been modified to check the permissions and pop up a warning describing the problem and
    showing the command needed to fix the problem. File "vbox-suid-warning.diff" is added.

  - Update as recommended in bsc#1060072.
  - Move files /usr/lib/virtualbox/, /usr/lib/virtualbox/, /usr/lib/virtualbox/, and
    /usr/lib/virtualbox/ from package virtualbox to virtualbox-qt. With this change, package virtualbox no longer needs libX11.
  - Version bump to 5.1.30 (released 2017-10-16 by Oracle)
    This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:
      GUI: translation updates
      GUI: Fixed double mouse cursor when using mouse integration without Guest Additions, actually a Qt 5.6 bug fixed with QT 5.6.3 (Mac OS X hosts only; bug #15610)

* Tue Jul 18 2017
  - In kernel 4.13, wait_queue_t => wait_queue_entry_t. File "vbox_fix_for_kernel_4.13.patch" patches the source to account for this change.
* Mon Jul 10 2017
  - Fix several problems with the startup scripts. The SysV form is no longer used for most packages as proper systemd
    service files have been created. These fixes address bsc#1037291, #1043532, and #1045871.
  - Increase reserved disk space from 4 to 5 GB. This change was suddested as a fix for the 32-bit failures.
* Fri Jun 30 2017
  - Fix missing global for 32-bit version with gcc7. (bsc#1046571).
    Fix missing frame buffer cleanup - private communication from Oracle - adds file "fix_KMS_support.patch".
* Sun Jun 25 2017
  - Fix logic error in scripts to build kernel modules locally - see bnc#1042726.
    Fix "requires" for net-tools-deprecated so that Leap 42.3 will build.
    Fix missing /media for Leap 42.3.
    Fix typo in above changes.
* Sun Jun 25 2017
  - Fix some typos in the various service files as noted in boo#1044931.
    With these fixes, TW guests start correctly. In addition, the /sbin/vboxconfig (for hosts) and the
    /sbin/vboxguestconfig (for guests) work correctly.
* Wed Jun 21 2017
  - Now that kernel:HEAD:standard has changed to version 4.12.0-rcX, the VB drivers need some changes for new API's.
    File "vbox_fix_for_kernel_4.12.patch" is added.
    The added installation of "net-tools-deprecated" broke builds for Leap 42.3. That change is now conditional on building for Factory.
* Sat Jun 10 2017
  - Add installation of package "net-tools-deprecated" as requested in boo#1027742.
* Thu Jun 08 2017
  - Revise warning screen concerning USB passthru - fixes bnc#1041137.
    USB passthru opens a security hole, yet it is so valuable that many users want the feature, thus it is our default.
    Previously, a user needed to edit a udev rule to disable passthru. The bad part was that an update of VB changed the
    rule back to allow passthru without any notification. These changes modify the popup to allow the user to accept or decline
    passthru. If the user declines, then the root password is requested and the udev rule is modified. As these modifications will be
    lost with the next VB update, the inode of the udev rule is kept. If the user has previously declined and the inode has changed,
    the popup will show the next time VB is started. File "" is added.
* Sun May 21 2017
  - add %dir /usr/share/licenses to new vnc package
* Wed May 17 2017
  - Made changes to build with gcc 7.x. This adds new file "vbox_fix_for_gcc7.patch".
    Changed the building of VBoxVNC to remove the hack used earlier.
* Wed May 10 2017
  - Make a number of changes:
    * Add VBoxVNC as a proper external pack rather than just make the so available (bnc #1037033). Thanks to Michal Nowak for most of this effort.
      One hack was required to work around a bug in "VBoxManage extpack install" whereby the --accept-license option failed to work.
    * Improve startup of VirtualBox through use of systemd service files:
      a. Beginning with Oracle version 5.0.8, the command used to build the kernel modules outside of the RPM packaging
      code changed; however, the openSUSE version did not implement the new method. That new code is now implemented.
      b. In Tumbleweed, the SysV init scripts to systemd service files stopped working. Part of the new code also checks
      to see if the kernel modules are loaded. If not, new script files are called to include the necessary packages
      and build the necessary modules.
      c. The hooks are in place to remove the sysv init files and do the complete conversion to systemd. This step will
      be done at a later time.
    * New files are "", "", "vboxdrv.service", and "vboxadd-service.service".
    * New sub-packages virtualbox-guest-source and virtualbox-vnc are produced.
    * Some typos in virtualbox.spec are fixed.
* Thu May 04 2017
  - Add libelf-devel to build. Fixes bnc #1037511.
    Modified the startup files to build the kernel modules if they are missing. Files "" and "vboxguestconfig" added.
* Sat Apr 29 2017
  - Version bump to 5.1.22 (released 2017-04-28 by Oracle)
    This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:
    VMM: fixed VERR_IEM_INSTR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED Guru Meditation under certain conditions (5.1 regression; mostly Mac OS X hosts; bugs #15693, #15801, #16274, #16569, #16663)
    VMM: fixed software virtualization on Solaris hosts (5.1.20 regression)
    Storage: fixed a potential hang under rare circumstances (bug #16677)
    Storage: fixed a potential crash under rare circumstances (asynchronous I/O disabled or during maintenance file operations like merging snapshots)
    Linux hosts: make the ALSA backend work again as well as loading the GL libraries on certain hosts (5.1.20 regression; bugs #16667, #16693)
    Linux Additions: fixed mount.vboxsf symlink problem (5.1.20 regression; bug #16670)
* Sat Apr 29 2017
  - VirtualBox has always been started by systemd utilizing the old-style scripts in /etc/init.d.
    These should be converted to the service files native to systemd. This issue has been forced
    as a recent update to Tumbleweed broke the startup of VB for both TW hosts and guests. This
    change starts the conversion to native systemd files. The original scripts are still used; however,
    service files are used to start and stop the VB components. In a later change, all action will
    be accomplished using systemd service files.
    Two new files named "vboxdrv.service" and "vboxadd-service.service" are added.
* Thu Apr 20 2017

* Sat Mar 04 2017
  - Fix for missing global in vboxsf that prevented mounting shared folders
    for kernel 4.10.  This change is the fix for bsc #1027967.
* Tue Feb 28 2017
  - Do not proivde and symbols into the rpm
* Sun Feb 26 2017
  - The fix for 3D acceleration only works for Gmome desktops. KDE desktops fail. Accordingly,
    3D acceleration must still be disabled "out-of-the-box". File /etc/init.d/vboxadd contains
    comments on the modifications needed to turn 3D acceleration on, thus Gnome users may turn
    it on selectively.
* Fri Feb 24 2017
  - Fix 3D acceleration as reported in bsc #1024934. The steps needed are as follows:
    - Remove file "vbox_prevent_wrong_SONAME.patch" - the original SONAME values are needed for and to be replaced by and, respectively.
    - Package
* Thu Feb 23 2017
  - Require insserv and fillup by the packages who call it in the
    pre/post install sections
* Thu Feb 02 2017
  - use individual libboost-*-devel packages instead of boost-devel

      Linux hosts: Linux 4.10 fixes
      Linux Additions: fixed protocol error during certain operations on shared folders (bug #8463)
* Sat Jan 14 2017
  - The printing of the warning about the insecurity in USB passthru had been lost. As most people are likely to want that feature,
    the logic has been inverted. Now, the required udev commands to allow passthru are included. The first time that VB is started,
    the user will get a screen that points to the bug entry discussing the problem and states what they should do to block the
    insecure usage. In any case, that screen will only be printed once. File "virtualbox-60-vboxdrv.rules" has been added
    These changes address the issues in bnc #1018340.
* Wed Dec 21 2016

  - Revert "vbox_hdpi_support.patch. This patch may improve things for, but it breaks other systems.
    See and bsc #1014694.
* Mon Dec 05 2016
  - I now have the necessary preprocessor symbol to modify the source depending on whether the server is 1.19.0 or greater.
    It is no longer necessary to detect the server version in the spec file, thus the solution is cleaner.
* Mon Dec 05 2016
  - Leap 42.2 still has server v. 1.18.3, thus the test failed. The test has been changed to look at only the 1.xx part of the version.
* Sun Dec 04 2016
  - Add patch file "Fix_for_server_1.19.patch" to support xorg-x11-server v. 1.19.0.

      GUI: improved handling of inserting the Guest Additions ISO image by trying all available optical drives rather than only the first one and by not asking the user if he wants to force unmounting (which doesn't work in most cases anyway)
      API: default to RTC using UTC for Solaris 11 guests
      Settings: be less restrictive when reading a VM configuration containing a host-only adapter without an interface name
      Storage: fixed resizing VDI images resulting in an unbootable image under certain circumstances (bug #15983)

  - Requesting 14000 MB is too much. Reduce the request to 12000 MB.
* Thu Oct 13 2016
  - Some builds still run out of memory and fail. Increase to 14000 MB.
* Thu Oct 13 2016
  - Builds keep running out of memory when building the web server part of the package.
    To help the memory pressure, I have forced make to run with "-j2", rather than use
    the number of processors. Such a change will slow the build, but will result in a
    higher rate of success.

* Fri Nov 06 2015
  - Add logic to to test if /etc/udev/rules.d/60-vboxdrv.rules exists. If not, a screen stating
    that passthru of USB devices is a security hole, and it refers the user to bnc#664520 for an explanation.
    It also explains the process for enabling USB passthru if the user really wants it. When the user closes
    the popup window, a dummy version of /etc/udev/rules.d/60-vboxdrv.rules is created, which prevents this
    window from being displayed every time VirtualBox is started.

  - Install and enable the vboxadd-service init script, to make
    auto-mounting of shared folders and time synchronization work
  - Install VBoxService to /usr/sbin/ instead of /usr/bin/ so that
    vboxadd-service can find it, it cannot be run as user anyway
  - Create the /media folder with appropriate permissions on
    distributions higher than 13.1, it doesn't exist any more and the
    one that VBoxService creates automatically cannot be accessed by
    normal users
