Hello wise ones,

I have the recent (from a few days ago) virtualbox-ose and
virtualbox-ose-kmod ports installed. Other ports are mostly
from Jan, 2011. With vboxdrv.ko loaded, /dev/vboxdrv does not
seem to be created and I don't know why.

    % kldstat

    13    1 0xcbbc9000 2e000    vboxdrv.ko
    % ls /dev/vboxdrv
    ls: /dev/vboxdrv: No such file or directory

I originally had a RELENG_8 kernel and userland from Jan, 2011 on
this host, but I csup-ed this morning (tag=RELENG_8) and built/
installed new kernel and userland. I also rebuilt virtualbox-ose
and virtualbox-ose-kmod afterwards.

There seems to be some logging facility in the vboxdrv code, but I
do not understand how to enable it or where to look for the output.

Thanks for any suggestions!
