      Where do people say that?
      Have they reported that to RHBZ?
      Does Virtualbox have a beta blocking criteria in Fedora?

          It's funny because one of the features that was planned for this release is better VirtualBox support: https://phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n...ion-VBox-Guest

          I think you mean this email: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/arch...UQ4JZEIVSLOTJP
          But the user should report on RHBZ to get noticed by developers.

            iv'e even seen a Fedora Packager mention the same issue in irc. i dont think myself the actual Beta is somewhat stable, as i said above, it was a rushed release as they couldnt afford another slip as i bet Redhat were/are pushing them to get it out so some of it can go into RHEL8

              I don't think 2-week delay is a rush, and most of the bugs reported on RHBZ whose blocking criteria applies on the beta had been resolved. I'm not a rawhide or alpha tester, so I wait for the beta to come out to test it (I don't have time to test, so I test it on my production machine).

              Hopefully, such bug will be revealed in detail soon and be fixed before the final release.

                    I couldn't find the RHBZ tracking bug too, but I found the livejournal blog from Hans http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/17743.html where he mentions the effort starting by mainlining VirtualBox drivers into the upstream Linux kernel. I don't know what happened next, though.

                    This is a related bug report too: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1481630
