Hi,

I have been using Puppy since 2006, so I understand it pretty good, but I am not so great at installing things.I got the VirtualBox.sfs installed on TAHR 6.1 but now it says I need the devx package and the Linux 3.14.20 Kernal source package. How do I get these two things installed? I couldn't find them.

Thanks!

Very Happy Hello,
I can't seem to locate the devx, you should be able to find it where you downloaded tahrpup.
The kernel sources are here:

Thanks Puppyluvr! Hey, what is devx anyway, do you know? I can't find much infomation on exactly what it is. When I search for it on the Internet, I get nothing about it.

The DEVX and Kernel source you can get in Quickpet.

Quickpet->Useful Pets->

The DEVX is basically a package of all the programs and files needed to compile programs in Tahrpup.

Puppy versions normally do not have these as part of the Puppy iso file.
They are not needed if you only get program packages from the Puppy Package Manager or by downloading and installing pet packages.
These program packages are already compiled for Puppy.

Thanks bigpup, I found it! So, I guess since VirtualBox is a QuickPet, it is not part of the PPM and thus I need DEVX to get it properly installed, correct?

virtualbox requires a kernel module to be built on first use which is why you need the devx and kernel sources... after it's done you can unload them if you wish.

you'll need both the devx and the kernel_sources.sfs (this is in quickpet on useful pets tab)

the kernel sources need to match the puppy iso you are using i.e PAE or noPAE & 6.0 or 6.0.2
