VirtualBox updated to 2.0.0


Thanks for the update Wolf_Pup.. I'm happy to get the updated VirtualBox however I have some errors. I'm still using Puppy 3.01 with SDL 1.2.9 and QT3.3.8. I read the update on VirtualBox's site and they meantioned using QT4.0 which I may just make a pet of if one isn't made all ready. anyway here is the dependency report.

Code:
These dependencies required by virtualbox-2.0.0_k2.6.21.7 package are missing:
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/kchmviewer has these missing library files:
 libVBoxQtCore.so.4 libVBoxQtCore.so.4
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxREM.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxVMM.so VBoxRT.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxXPCOMIPCD has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxSDL.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/vboxwebsrv has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/components/VBoxC.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/components/VBoxSVCM.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/libVBoxQtGui.so.4 has these missing library files:
 libVBoxQtCore.so.4
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxSettings.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxHeadless.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxFFmpegFB.so has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so
File /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.0/VBoxManage has these missing library files:
 VBoxXPCOM.so

The PETget package manager does not know what package/s has/have these libraries.

Users really should be able to delete their own posts in case of duplicate posting, Then messages like this one could be avoided.

@stevenbinion

I use a similar setup (Pup 3.02 - SDL - QT3) and I downloaded the VirtualBox 2.0 binary from the website. I installed it and had no problems.

I do not have any of the QT 4 dependencies that you listed. Here is the file I installed from:

http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/2.0.0/VirtualBox-2.0.0-36011-Linux_x86.run

I checked the MD5 against the file and it didn't pass so I downloaded the .pet again and every thing works just fine. got only 3 dependency errors which I'll still try and fix but it doesn't keep anything from working. Great work Wolf_Pup. I'll probably put a QT4 pet together too, it may not be needed but Sun suggest it as 2.0 was built for it.

Dear Wolf pup,

This version of the user GUI (2.02) - written in QT4 - is ugly as sin. That is because the GUI is linked to static libs in the Virtual Box directory with a horrendously primitive style. In the interest of prettification, one solution proposed by somebody on the Arch Linux forum was to link the gui to original qt4 libs where a styles plugin exists (for instance, libgtkstyle.so, to match the current GTK theme):
Code:
mv /opt/virtualbox/libVBoxQtGui.so.4 /opt/virtualbox/libVBoxQtGui.so.4.org
mv /opt/virtualbox/libVBoxQtCore.so.4 /opt/virtualbox/libVBoxQtCore.so.4.org
ln -s /opt/qt4/libQtGui.so.4 /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.2/libVBoxQtGui.so.4
ln -s /opt/qt4/lib/libQtCore.so.4 /opt/VirtualBox-2.0.2/libVBoxQtCore.so.4


This is a halfway-measure, however, since, in my case, it only changes the GUI to the qt4 default style qclouds - not exactly what I am after, since that is also pretty ugly. If you have the source to VirtualBox (GUI only), perhaps you could post it so that I could try compile it against my shared qt4 libs, thereby guaranteeing an OS-matched gui with libgtkstyle.so.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Wolf Pup,
Thank you for this package and the updates. I'm running v2.02 and it's handled every OS I've tried pretty well. Handy for screenshots of booting up and video content in my puplet.
Well done!
TazOC

Dear Wolf Pup,

Thanks for the update. Everything works on my 3.01. I did the link trick with my own qtcore and qtgui libs (4.4.4), deleting the ones in the pet after testing, and my interface is now in my own gtk style and pretty. Moreover, I saved about 11 MB in disk space by doing this. I don't recommend this method unless you have a recent qt4 installed.

With kind regards,
vovchik

Hi everyone
I'm a noob at puppy and linux, so please bear with me. I've downloaded the virtualbox 2.0.2 pup file from the repo, and installed it, but I also get a list of missing dependencies. I'm using puppy 4 installed on my hdd.
I would like to get a virtual machine up and running so that I can run xp in my puppy installlation.

I have also tried installing vmware workstation, but the missing header files are making it stall. I can't seem to find any information about how to install the missing header files anywhere.

If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks
