[Bug 1434579] Re: Unable to install VirtualBox Guest Service in 15.04


We're also going to add a "Provides: virtualbox-guest-modules" to both
linux-image and virtualbox-guest-dkms, so that x11/utils can depend on
that, and only force dkms installation if the driver isn't builtin.

  Unable to install VirtualBox Guest Service in 15.04

Bug description:
  It is not longer possible to select VirtualBox Guest Service in 15.04.
  The only options available are:

    * Continue using a manually install driver
    * Do not use the device

  The option 'Using x86 virtualisation solution - guest addition module'
  is no longer selectable. See the attached screen shot. This is from a
  fresh install of Ubuntu MATE 15.04 daily (20th March) and no drivers
  have been manually installed.

  In light of the Virtualbox issue where new installs on Virtualbox have
  a resolution of 640x480
  this is going to be a frustration for many users.
