Description Jure Varlec 2020-11-30 08:18:19 UTC
The text of the PUEL license in the portage tree states

    VirtualBox Personal Use and Evaluation License (PUEL)

    License version 8, April 19, 2010

The license installed at /usr/lib64/virtualbox/ExtensionPacks/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack/ExtPack-license.txt

    VirtualBox Extension Pack Personal Use and Evaluation License (PUEL)

    License version 11, 21 May 2020

The differences are important as the new license bans all commercial use.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compare the PUEL license in portage to the ExtPack-license.txt license installed by the package

Actual Results:  
License text differs

Expected Results:  
License text is the same
