Bug Description

SRU RATIONALE:
Lucid is an LTS and where possible (read: minimally invasive) it would make sense to support newer versions of Virtualbox.

SRU TEST CASE:
1. Install virtualbox-3.2 from Oracle repos: http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
2. Try to use testdrive to open and ISO in virtualbox-3.2, it shouldn't open
3. Install package from -proposed
4. Try to use testdrive to open and ISO in virtualbox-3.2, it should open

-----------------------------------------

Testdrive tries to launch in VirtualBox and apparently it does.

However, this is not the case given that the current VirtualBox version is 3.2, and the supported ones are 3.0 and 3.1.

(as of 6/15/10 the testdrive is 1.38 in Lucid, which does not work with VirtualBox 3.2)

Here is a debdiff that backports the changes from http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~testdrive/testdrive/trunk/revision/245 to the 1.38 version.

Any testers of the lucid-proposed package? As this has been in -proposed for a long time already, I'll remove the proposed package soon if there is no feedback. Thank you!

I could install the testdrive package without installing quemu (testdrive 1.38 Qubuntu 1.1; virtualbox 3.2 non-free; kubuntu 10.04-64). testdrive opens the iso in virtualbox. I can't open the iso from virtualbox, it works, when I start testdrive. The iso-today does not start right, but that not a problem of testdrive.
Thanks for your work. Sorry for my bad english.
