Regarding USB support for phpVirtualBox

Recommended Posts

I made some research and found that installation script inside provided spk file has missed some important functionality responsible for USB device enumeration and mounting to VirtualBox.

Stock installation file for Linux systems (refer link below) creates rules for udev which are not applicable for Synology DSM. So, we need some startup script which can perform the same thing (gets the list of USB devices in Host system and provide info about them to script VBoxCreateUSBNode.sh which is a part of VBox installation). Such operation should be performed every time when new device is attached to DSM.

Also it is need to create group vboxusers and add root user to it. /proc/bus/usb should be mounted with correct permissions for vboxusers (/etc/rc should be patched).

I manualy did such operations for USB flash with success. But fail for Web camera...

 

May be somebody who is more familar with DSM and Linux scripting could take a look into this issue?
