Add VNC Extension Pack to VirtualBox
Last modified: 2017-04-12 16:12:06 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.
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.
Closing this bug as fixed.
openSUSE-RU-2017:0989-1: An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.
