Hello, I am trying out Alpine Linux for the first time on a VirtualBox VM environment. According to this wiki (https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/VirtualBox_guest_additions) I should be able to turn on the aditions, but I get the following error:

alpine-vm:~# apk add virtualbox-additions-grsec
ERROR: unsatisfiable constraints:
  linux-hardened-4.9.32-r0:
    breaks: virtualbox-additions-hardened-4.9.51-r0[linux-hardened=4.9.51-r0]

Is the mirror out of date or are the dependencies?

Thanks,

M

It looks like the -grsec additions are not available anymore (presumably because of the branding), they have been replaced with a -hardened version but this is only in the edge branch of the testing repositories:

https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/packages?name=virtualbox-additions-hardened&branch=&repo=&arch=&maintainer=

That package can only be used with the 4.9.51 kernel so I think you will have to track the edge branch instead of using the stable release (or wait for the next release).
