Archlinux, VirtualBox and USB support

Filed under: Uncategorized — guilleml @ 5:47 pm

I’ve been using Archlinux for some time now and I’m pretty happy with it.

I just want to comment how I got VirtualBox working with USB, just add the following line to your /etc/fstab file:

none /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,busgid=108,busmode=0775,devgid=108,devmode=0664 0 0

Now you should be able to connect USB memory drives, webcams, modems…and catch them inside the virtual machine within the guest operating system running.
