Description Michal Nowak 2017-02-10 08:12:25 UTC
VirtualBox includes support for VNC as a VRDE in form of a Extension Pack but it's not included in openSUSE packages.

General information wrt the Extension Pack + how to test it: http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#otherextpacks.

For the VNC libraries (https://github.com/mirror/vbox/tree/b9657cd5351cf17432b664009cc25bb480dc64c1/src/VBox/ExtPacks/VNC) to be useful they should be part of Extension Pack which should be included into RPM sub-package, which - when installed - installs the Extension Pack via `VBoxManage extpack install` command. See Arch Linux repo for how it might be done: https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/community.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/virtualbox.
Comment 1 Larry Finger 2017-03-29 15:39:25 UTC
Updates to VirtualBox that package VBoxVNC*.so has been submitted to both Tumbleweed and Leap 42.2. It will take a while for the new code to be available, but please test when the new packages are available.
