vbox-install.log contains:

/opt/VirtualBox-2.0.2/src/build_in_tmp: line 99: make: command not found

Actuallu the build_in_tmp file contains:

Quote:
# make, cleanup if success
cd "$tmpdir"
if make "$@"; then
if [ -n "$SAVE_MOD_SYMVERS" ]; then
if [ -f Module.symvers ]; then
cp -f Module.symvers $SAVE_MOD_SYMVERS
else
cat /dev/null > $SAVE_MOD_SYMVERS
fi
fi
rm -rf $tmpdir
exit 0
fi

Hi Shinzon,

What version of puppy are you using? I have been able to install the "virtualbox-1.6.6_k2.6.21.7.pet" from the link you listed above on puppy version "puppy-4.00-k2.6.21.7-seamonkey.iso". As you suggest you have to also install SDL and QT to get it to get it going.

I can't seem to get it to work on any of the later versions of Puppy- even with the retro 2.6.21.7 kernel.

You can also download the "Vuppy" puplet which comes with Virtualbox already install.

Cheers
Mark.

Make is unknown because you don't have the developers package installed with your pup.

Well, I'm using puppy 4.1.2 kernel 2.6.25.16.

I installed devx_412.sfs (ora i think so because the cc command is recognized in the console but not the MAKE )

Are there other developers packages?

Thanks to all! Very Happy

I've gone though all the above steps, but when I try the setup I get
Quote:
Makefile:142: *** Error: unable to find the sources of your current Linux kernel. Specify KERN_DIR=<directory> and run Make again. Stop.

I have the Dev_412.sfs included.
Where should I point the KERN_DIR ?

Oh by the way I am not a Linux expert (although I'm learning rapidly), so simple instructions please.

Well, I tried Vuppy and it works fine. i386 suggests to use puppy-4.00-k2.6.21.7.

But this two solutions will mean to re-install puppy and all the applications i installed on it. It's hard to take a decision Very Happy

Hi Shinzon,

I had the same dilemma with respect to what to do about Virtualbox.

In the end I had to install two versions of Puppy. If I want to use Virtualbox I boot up Vuppy. Although Vuppy doesn't support my sound card- so I also have installed Puppy 4.1.2 which I use if I want sound. I can execute either one at Grub.

I just hope that someone can come up with a solution with how to install VBox on Puppy 4.1.2 and then I can just have one install.

Wow. Yours might be my final solution too.
Did you install vuppy before or later then the latest puppy? (because i've the latest installed now).

I installed Vuppy after I had 4.2 installed. Lucky enough I had a bit of room on my HDD, then created another partition and installed Vuppy (also had to update my grub). So when I boot the machine I now have an option to run one or another.

I'd prefer it if I could get everything to run under the one version of Puppy (4.2), but my linux skills are pretty basic. Maybe the next version of Puppy will come with Virtualbox as standard- wouldn't that be great!

Fine, but that doesn't answer my question about the source.

Never mind chaps I've cracked it.


I now have virtualbox 2.02 running under Puppy 4.12 Frugal

Hi, I installed Virtual Box following the instrunctions on this link:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=441654412&t=30297

I installed first SDL and QT then VirtualBox (both of the two versions in the link).

When I try to start a machine the program opens another window: "Spawning Session..." and stands on it.


I included the misnamed kernel modules:
kernel-src-2.6.25.15-patched-puppy4.1.sfs
as well as the dev_412.sfs

Then ran in a console


/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

and it works.
