Make sure proper permissions stay set for VirtualBox in OpenSuse 11.1
The problem:
running the following:
$: /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox
gives you this following:
$: /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox
/usr/bin/VirtualBox: line 1: /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox:  Permission denied.
The reason:
If SuSEconfig runs it resets the permissions of the files defined in /etc/permissions*.

The solution:
sudo chmod o+x /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox
Open the file > /etc/permissions.easy < with vi, goto the end and change the lines of VirtualBox from permission 4750 to 4755.
Save, Quit.
