Hello, I'm trying to get USB to work on virtualbox (the BINARY, so not the OSE edition which doesn't support USB).
I get the following error:
Code:
Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.


Result Code:
0x80004005
Component:
Host
Interface:
IHost {81729c26-1aec-46f5-b7c0-cc7364738fdb}
Callee:
IMachine {31f7169f-14da-4c55-8cb6-a3665186e35e}

I edited my fstab file following this: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO:_VirtualBox#USB_Devices_Grayed_Out


Code:
none         /proc      proc      defaults               0 0
none          /proc/bus/usb    usbfs      rw,noexec,nosuid,devmode=0664,devgid=1003    0 0

I added these lines, but still I can't get USB to work properly:
Gentoo isilia # cat /proc/bus/usb
cat: /proc/bus/usb: No such file or directory
Gentoo isilia # ls /proc/bus
input pci

I'm out of ideas on this, hopefully you can help. Thanks.

If you're not seeing /proc/bus/usb that makes me think you didn't build usb support in your kernel
