VirtualBox (Virtualization, Windows emulation)

By default, openSuSE does not allow the direct access to USB that VirtualBox can use. The answer to this problem is found C.R.U.S. Technology spot. In summary...

Add a new group `usbfs'. I used 1002, because 1001 was already used by `nx'

Change `/etc/fstab' usbfs line to (all one long line!)...

usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw,devgid=1002,devmode=0666,busgid=1002,busmode=0770,listgid=1002,listmode=0660 0 0
