Comment 1 Morgan Leijström 2021-11-26 16:07:03 CET
OK at My usual test/workstation; nvidia-current, Plasma

Testing with kernel 5.15.4-1,
and from testing: systemd-246.16-1, glibc-2.32-22
- reboot -

dkms status is OK

I used command line to install the upstream extpack, for USB2 etc.

The guest system is MSW7pro 64 bit.

Performed the tests I use to:
  Dynamically resizing guest window by mouse
  Shared clipboard, bidirectional
  Shared folders bidirectional read/write copying, and readonly works correctly.
  Drag a file from host Dolphin to guest Explorer
  USB2: flash stick
  Sound, Internet, performance: playing video in Firefox

CC: (none) => fri

Installed on a very old Dell E6400

Installation and virtual machine creation ok.

No more tests possible due to computer performance.

Host is i5-2500, 16GB Ram, Intel graphics, 64-bit Plasma system. Tested after testing glibc and systemd.

No installation issues with the host. Downloaded extension pack and updated with the gui without issues. Ran Windows 7 and Windows XP guests, downloaded and inserted guest additions with the gui. Shared folders OK in both. USB 3.0 external hard drive detected by Windows 7, but unable to use because it is formatted in ext4. Windows offered to format it, but I declined. Exported each Windows guest without incident, though it was slow going, because between the two of them the resulting .ova files totaled over 35GB.

Updated a Mageia 8 32-bit Xfce guest without incident. Seems to be OK, but this is a minimal guest, not using any advanced features beyond the shared clipboard.

Updated a 64-bit Mageia 8 guest, again without incident. Shared clipboard and shared folders OK.

I did not yet try to create a new guest, because it's lunchtime and I'm hungry. But, everything else looks good.

Host MGA 64 XFCE core I3 4Go Ram and GeForce 520M

Updated and tested on vbox W7 and MGA Mate.
Both systems work fine. 

With vbox Mate:

FF web navigation and videos are ok.
Cairo Dock too
Kodi Ok
