openSUSE 42.1 RC1

  • GNOME fails to start in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine. The cause is that LEAP 42.1 uses gdm 3.16.x, which no longer runs X as root. As a result, the VirtualBox video driver fails. The workaround is to install lightdm using YaST or zypper, then edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager by changing the DISPLAYMANAGER line from "gdm" to "lightdm". The ultimate fix will be a rewrite of vboxvideo. In the interim, gdm will be rolled back to 3.14.2, which does not have this problem. - Bug #950877
