PostPosted: Mon 28 Sep 2009, 03:52    Post subject:  VirtualBox 3.1 for kernel 2.6.30.5 (puppy 4.3)  

I have made a pet of virtualbox 3.1 for puppy 4.3

http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP/virtualbox-3.1_k2.6.30.5.pet

Note that Vbox needs libSDL installed as well as Qt and now OpenGL (xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1.pet)

I have not included the VirtualBoxGuestAdditions.iso in this pet so that it does not take up space in the pup_save file. It is available separately at the same site.

http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP/Vbox310GuestAdditionsIso.tgz

To use guest additions just unarchive the file and place the iso out of the puppy directory structure and either use it by mounting the iso onto your virtual machine or create a symlink of the iso in /opt/VirtualBox/additions and use the virtualbox Devices menu. The Guest additions Iso is mainly for windows guest OS on a linux host. For puppy guest OS on windows host use the following pet package in the guest puppy OS:

http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP/virtualbox_guest_additions-3.1_k2.6.30.5.pet

You will need to restart your computer / virtual machine after installing the pet(s).

PostPosted: Tue 29 Sep 2009, 13:39    Post subject: Error Running vbox
Subject description: I installed via the .PET but I am getting an error message when I try and run vbox
 

When I click the link the Menu bar - nothing happens. So i went to a terminal and tried to start only to get the following error.

VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyDir: Cannot tr4ust the directory "/opt/VirtualBox" : group and/or other writable (st_mode-40777)

I am fairly new to Linux, but I have Googled this error and haven't really come up with anything. the VBox Forums don't have anything listed either.

I installed the qt4-4.3.2 and the sdl-1.2.11 and tried with the above error. I went online and found what looks like an updated sdl library the Sdl-1.2.13-Muppy0084 so I installed that and tried again with the same error.

I have uninstalled and rebooted and reinstalled and rebooted several times - all to the same error.

Any hints?

Thanks

Steve

Subject description: Error with the 2.6.30.5 Puppy/VBox 3.06 .PET installation
 

I finally remembered that VirtualBox is OS. So I went and found the source code and some very nice programmer put in a comment where the permissions were checked. Making sure that the VirtualBox folder WAS ONLY writable by the Owner (i.e. root). So i went back and removed the w permissions for everyone else and sure enough - bang it works.

PostPosted: Tue 06 Oct 2009, 14:48    Post subject: install virtualbox 3.08 in puppy 4.3  

This is how I install and setup VirtualBox 3.0.8 in Puppy 4.3. I hope someone might find this useful.

1. Have devx_430.sfs and kernel_src-2.6.30-5-patched.sfs4.sf loaded at boot time.

2. Download the lastest version of SDL and install it (./configure && make && make install from a terminal)

http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.13.tar.gz

3.Download the "All distributions" version of VirtualBox 3.0.8. Click it to run it.

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/3.0.8/VirtualBox-3.0.8-53138-Linux_x86.run

4. From a terminal, create a user called vboxusers

Quote:
adduser -D -H vboxusers


5. Create a VirtualBox desktop icon by dragging the /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox program to the desktop. Right click it to set up icon image using /opt/VirtualBox/VBox.png

6. Reboot. /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv should start automatically at each boot.

7. Click the VirtualBox icon to run VirtualBox.

8. (suggested) Under "Preferences", set the VDI folder to point to physical hard disk /mnt/home to allow more disk space for the larger vdi files.

Hello,

i can't find anywhere dev_430.sfs and kernel_src-2.6.30-5-patched.sfs4.sfs ?

Will it be possible to make an sfs file of VirtualBox 3.0.8 ?

Thanks.

It's here.

http://puppylinux.com/sources/kernel-2.6.30.5/

Sorry, I don't know how to make sfs.

I also install xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1.pet using the Puppy Package Manager to allow 3D graphics support in VirtualBox 3.0.8.

Thanks for the sfs files.

When i installed the latest SDL all the libs are copied in /usr/local/lib.

Then when i started virtualbox it didn't find SDL so i copied them in /usr/lib :
Quote:
cp /usr/local/lib/libSDL* /usr/lib/


And it works great.

Thanks for all.

Bye

Hello.
I have a normal Puppy 4.3 frugal install (2.6.30). How can I install libSDL and qt?

Oh, thank you for the nVidia driver!

You can install libsdl-1.2.9.pet from the Puppy Package Manager. It works with VirtualBox 3.0.8.

I found that starting with Puppy 4.3, installing qt is not needed. May be it is already included in base Puppy 4.3.
