I see threads periodically about problems installing Virtualbox on a recently updated oi. And some success stories too, but I really would like to see a summary of how to attempt to install latest vbox. I think that would be 5.2.6 currently.
Something that would give a not so adept person running oi hosts, a fighting chance of successfully getting a very recent vbox installed and periodically updating it. I'm currently running 5.0.40 successfully having used JimK's patches that were actually written for 4*X vbox. (Thank you Jim K). And have been doing so for a number of months. But sooner or later I will be needing to update. I've already been told on a Debian list that my version was getting too old for them to advise me on problems with debian vms I work with on my OI host. _______________________________________________ openindiana-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://openindiana.org/mailman/listinfo/openindiana-discuss
