Description Alex Grant 2020-08-28 18:57:10 CEST
Description of problem:
Hello. The bidirectional Shared clipboard does not work on the Mageia-8 VM

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virtualbox-guest-additions-6.1.12-8.mga8.x86_64.rpm

How reproducible:
To make sure that the shared clipboard in The mageia-8 guest system does not work, install Mageia-8 on the VM, enable the Shared clipboard (bidirectional), and copy the text from the Guest OS (Mageia-8) to the Host's text editor.

Host: Mageia-7.1-x86_64 + Any DE + VirtualBox v6.0.24r139119 + VBoxExtPack +  bidirectional Shared clipboard is enabled

Guest: Mageia-8.0-x86_64-kernel-5.8.5-desktop-1.mga8 + Any DE + virtualbox-guest-additions-6.1.12-8.mga8.x86_64.rpm


Solving the problem (operations inside the guest Mageia-8.0):
su
password

urpme virtualbox-guest-additions-6.1.12-8.mga8.x86_64.rpm

wget  https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.24/VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.24.iso
mkdir /111; mount -o loop,ro ./VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.24.iso /111; cd /111; sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.ru; reboot

p.s. I apologize for my poor English (this is an online translator)...

Hi;
Thanks reporting this,

Sadly, current Linux kernel version 5.8 is not supported either as Host nor Guest in Virtualbox upstream.

As soon an update on this will be published upstream, we will provide updated packages.

Therefore:

This is a dirty workaround obtain by chance. You use an older VBoxGuestAdditions version : 6.0.24 < 6.1.12-8 provided by our RPM.

Don't excuse you! We can read well ;)

Holding this in Bugsquad until upstream updates come.

Okay, Aurelien Oudelet. :)
Comment 3 Aurelien Oudelet 2020-08-28 19:23:49 CEST
Also as a workaround,
In your mga8 guest VM, you can still use kernel-5.7.9-desktop-1.mga8 which still works.
Comment 4 Alex Grant 2020-08-28 19:33:29 CEST
Thank you, but it doesn't suit me. I install Mageia through the network and collect live-usb-flash drives with different DE from them. So I need all the latest stuff usually. In addition, this fits into the General concept of testing: You update and I collect, I collect - You update, etc.

Virtualbox updated to version 6.1.14 and fixes run on 5.8 kernel series.
This should resolve this bug.

Comment 7 Alex Grant 2020-09-11 11:47:42 CEST
Good afternoon, Aurelien Oudelet. For a clean check, I installed a new Mageia-8 VM over the network in which virtualbox-guest-additions = 6.1.14-3 and kernel = 5.8.8-1. The bidirectional clipboard still doesn't work (see the screenshot of vbox-additions-6.1.14-kernel-5.8.8-1). Let me remind you that my host system is Mageia-7.1 and it has VirtualBox 6.0.24 r139119 + Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.0.24.vbox-extpack. As the main desktop environment, I use "Budgie-10.5.1" and additional - "MATE-1.22.1". I don't know how a guy with a similar problem from a related topic is doing right now, but I still have the same result - in both environments, the result is negative. I am very sorry... :(
Comment 8 Aurelien Oudelet 2020-09-11 11:56:24 CEST
So sorry to see this.
Seems virtualbox additions are outdated in Mageia 7.1

Requesting an update if possible.
Assigning to all packagers, no registered one.

Comment 9 Alex Grant 2020-09-11 12:07:10 CEST
In other words, there are drastic changes between these versions that do not allow you to work with a higher release from a lower release? It's weird. This is the first time I have such problems, usually with the clipboard it has never been like this. Could partially not work Drag & Drop in different DE, but the buffer... Weird. :) Thank you for your assistance.
