Default USB not working in VirtualBox F13

Hi;
Kernel x86_64 x86_64 x86_64
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa VirtualBox*
VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.6_63112_fedora13-1.x86_64

This is the Oracle version, same for the fedora version.
I cannot install the OSE version as "there is no module for this kernel"

My userneme is mick, mick is a member of mick(500), usb(503), vboxusers(504).

I have a line in fstab:
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=503,devmode=664 0 0


In VirtualBox -> USB All boxes are checked.
It sees "Kingston DataTraveller 2.0 (0200)", is dark text and seems normal.

Top line: Devices -> USB Devices - the Kingston is there but greyed out.
Bottom line hover over USB symbol "NO USB devices attached"

Any Ideas?

The OSE version doesn't support USB. That's the main difference I think.

Try commenting out that line. I have no such entry in /etc/fstab and it
works for me.

AFAIK, OSE doesn't support USB [1]

Thanks for the reply, however I am not using the OSE version.

Have a look here:
http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch03.html#id2618113

This should give you the information needed to get USB support working
correctly.

Hint from this page:
On newer Linux hosts, VirtualBox accesses USB devices through special
files in the file system. When VirtualBox is installed, these are made
available to all users in the vboxusers system group. In order to be
able to access USB from guest systems, make sure that you are a member
of this group.

Cheers,

Chris

He already said he is a member of vboxusers.

If you read the actual page, it gives you more things to check and
validate (and should actually configure in Fedora). Being a member of
vboxusers is just the start of what you should be checking...

I'm aware of that. I already have USB working in VB, as I said earlier.
I was merely commenting on the group issue since the OP had already said
he dealt with that.

Hi;
that line came from the help tab in Vbox.
This post just got here, I fixed it by using a PS/2 to USB adapter on my mouse.

The Oracle VirtualBox creates a group 'vboxusers'. Add yourself to this
group and USB works.


For the kernel module thing, make sure you have the dkms package installed.
