[Solved] VirtualBox USB in F13?

Hi, does anyone have any suggestions for enabling usb support in VirtualBox (binary version not OSE) in F13? It worked 'out of the box' in F12...

I have done in this order:
* made sure I am a member of vboxusers group
* echo "usb:x:503:$(logname)" >> /etc/group (Dangermouse's suggestion from various threads here)
* Added "none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=502,devmode=664 0 0" to fstab (502 is vboxusers group)
* Made sure SeLinux is in permissive mode.

After all that and restarting in between each step I still get "No usb devices available" in VirtualBox.

Any suggestions?

Solved:
This is what I had to add to fstab:
none /sys/bus/usb/drivers usbfs devgid=502,devmode=664 0 0

then running mount -a and restarting VirtualBox.
