Are there any issues with upgrading from gentoo-sources-5.5.16 to 5.6.3 and running virtualbox-6.1.4?
(My Gentoo system is the Virtualbox host.)

(I ask because of issues I had with virtualbox-6.1.2 when I upgraded to gentoo-sources-5.5.x. )

virtualbox-modules-6.1.4-r1 will fail to compile without a patch, which you can get from bug 715726.

It seems to work fine for me after adding that as a user patch.

Thanks for the information.

(Guess I was not using the proper search terms to find those.)
