I'm currently running VBox 5.2.4 on Hipster with Win-7 Pro and Debian 9.3 as
guests on an HP Z400 I followed the wiki instructions. Here are the scripts I
# cat tst1
pkgtrans VirtualBox-5.2.4-SunOS-amd64-r119785.pkg . all
sed -i /checkinstall/d SUNWvbox/pkgmap
pkgadd -d . SUNWvbox
# cat tst2
VBoxManage extpack install
Guests reading from the optical drive is pretty well buggered. Disk images
work fine. If you want to migrate a Windows system to a VM you need to use
disk2vhd to create the disk image ofd the filesystem.
You also need to load the extensions from an iso image in each guest. I had
some issues with screen resolution on Debian, but when I came back from my trip
the problem was gone. No idea what the issue was.
