1. At first running "virtualbox" gave me this error: "Could not find VirtualBox installation. Please reinstall."
I had to manually touch /etc/vbox/vbox.cfg and chown it root:vboxusers to make this error disappear.
2. The symbolic links in /usr/bin were owned by root:root. I had to manually chown them to root:vboxusers so non-root users can use them.
3. Then I tried running "virtualbox" again and got: "Unknown application - virtualbox". The wrapper seems to only recogzine "VirtualBox" (caps), so I had to manually rename the links in /usr/bin (virtualbox, vboxmanage, vboxsdl => VirtualBox, VBoxManage, VBoxSDL).
4. Then I got this:
/usr/bin/VirtualBox: line 102: /VirtualBox: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/VirtualBox: line 102: exec: /VirtualBox: cannot execute: No such file or directory
The wrapper tries to exec $INSTALL_DIR/VirtualBox. INSTALL_DIR is not defined.
So, I did an export INSTALL_DIR=/opt/VirtualBox, and then I could at last get VirtualBox to start.
By the way, why is virtualbox installed in /opt ?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge =app-emulation/virtualbox-1.4.0
retry with 1.5.2 please
That's ~ but oh well... Yup, all OK in 1.5.2.
Already triggered arch teams to stable it so that should happen soonish.
Thanks for the feedback :)
