    Ok, that is a problem as I don't have a linker that will link QT. Is
    your prebuilt Qt available? I don't really want to DL your build
    enviroment due to limited bandwidth here

    Looks like they are indeed QT symbols and there are pages and pages of them :-)

    I didn't, I had a localenvironment.kmk but the symptoms remain the same after
    renaming it.

    I do have your QT in /dev/qt/trunk but I guess I'm missing something to make it
    look there.

    The g++ command that fails will work if I hand edit the rsp file and add the
    psqt.lib/dll files into there myself (but kmk immediately removes that and blows
    up again so not much use).

    LIBRARY_PATH has f:/dev/qt/trunk/lib in it which is where I thought it was
    looking but perhaps not?

    Those are Qt symbols....

    Where is your localconfig.kmk located?

    I checkout source from u:\dev\virtualbox

    localconfig.kmk is in u:\dev\virtualbox\vbox

    I ran the Virtualbox 1.4.0 OS/2-host on a reasonably old AthlonXP 3000+
    (K7 family, Barton core). From what I have read I wont be able to use
    OS/2-guests because my CPU does not have the Vanderbilt/Pacifica

    Did the QT actually work? I tried with wl-hll-r1.zip some time ago and
    even though the build finished it turned out some symbols in the DLL
    were junk.
    I'll try updating QT and trying again and if it does not work I'll get

    I built VBox with it, seems to work as far as I can tell.

    I just have a f:\vbox directory that is the equivalent of your
    \dev\virtualbox\vbox. My localconfig.kmk is in \vbox. I've obviously got
    something wrong in my environment variables somewhere but I duuno where. Will
    continue to experiment.

    I did two things and it worked. First I ran ./configure and it spat out an error
    message about unable to determine OS and finished - not unreasonably when you
    read the script ;-) What it did do though was write an empty AutoConfig.kmk so I
    copied localconfig.kmk into that and reran the compile and it worked.

    Was this a SVN checkout or a zip file? I've been having problems getting
    the SVN checkout to compile very far at all. Seems to be missing some
    (q)makefiles or something though I haven't looked very hard yet

    Yes, built from SVN.

    One of my presentations at Warpstock 2007 will be on eCS in virtual
    machines. I installed Virtual PC 2007, Parallels, SVISTA 2004, and
    Virtual Box to WinXP on my T42 since WinXP was the only platform that
    ran all of them. My Virtual Box experience was not very good.

    eCS 1.2R
    ISO boot for setup
    Install boot hangs at RESOURCE.SYS
    eCS 2.0RC3
    ISO boot for setup
    Install boot traps at RESOURCE.SYS

    Hi Chuck...

    I succeeded in installing eCS on virtual box (1.5) by cloning a real hardware
    installation

    - install eCS on any volume selecting gengradd as video driver
    - zip the whole volume:
    X:
    CD\
    zip -rq9ST$ eCS.zip * -x X:\OS2\SYSTEM\SWAPPER.DAT
    - use Bootable to create a bootable command line CD-ISO including unzip.exe, lvm.exe,
    sysinstx.exe and a zip of the eCS installation
    - mount the ISO in a virtual box machine and boot it
    - create a volume with the appropriate drive letter in the virtual box hard drive
    - format the voume
    - unzip the eCS installation archive
    - run sysinstx to install the system files in the proper location
    - unmount the CD-ISO
    - reboot
    - install the eCS additions

    this is a known problem, use Warp 3, Warp 4, MCP1/2/2R or ACP1/2/2R and
    be happy!

    Or make an eCS-install somewhere else (I made it in VPC/2), zip it, boot
    with CD to a commandline, partition, format and unpack the zip. Then
    even eCS will run in VBox!

    Or get somebody fix that resource.sys. It hangs sometimes when I try to
    install on my (real) computer as well. And this piece of eCS is available for
    change, I suppose.

    Not being able to run the installer is a major stumbling block.
