There is no vboxnetflt in both virtualbox-ose and virtualbox-module. As a result, the host interface networking never works.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
community/virtualbox-modules 2.1.2-1
community/virtualbox-ose 2.1.2-1

* config and/or log files etc.
See here:

Steps to reproduce:
Install virtualbox-ose and then start a VM that is use host interface networking.
This task depends upon

simple "patch" to add the following:

install -D -m644 vboxnetflt.ko "$pkgdir/lib/modules/${_kernver}/misc/vboxnetflt.ko"

Yes, this is serious issue, with (i think) easy fixing, please complete this soon :)

Please fix this. vboxnetflt is an important module as it enables Host Interface network. Thanks!

Has anyone looked at this? There seems to have been zero activity on this since it was reported.

I also think it would be a great idea to add vboxnetflt to this package. Please, add it :D

Is there anyone else that can address this bug since the current assignee is unresponsive? In addition to preventing a virtualbox upgrade, this bug is also preventing me from upgrading my kernel, numerous kernel-related packages, and my nvidia drivers due to dependency issues.

pacman -Syu now gives me "error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: virtualbox-modules: requires kernel26<2.6.29"
