    ISTR, Paul Smedley did a test build, but I can't find a link to it at the
    moment.

    It dawned on me that you are looking for VirtualBox as an OS/2 host,
    whereas the VirtualBox page speaks of OS/2 as a guest. Please pardon my
    goof.

    If you made another post with a goof in it then it hasn't turned up here yet. I
    was indeed thinking about running Virtualbox as a host on OS/2 to boot other
    o/s's as my most powerful hardware runs OS/2.

    I have tried to run OS/2 as a VM under Virtualbox on Suse Linux but it stalled
    when loading various drivers and I eventually gave up. I suspect it was because
    that the machine I was running it on was a Pentium M and that lacks the hardware
    virtualisation that I saw was required to boot OS/2 under VB.

    I'm pretty sure it was Paul Smedley who released a test version of the
    binaries in June. I don't recall where I got it from on his site, but
    I have never seen any mention of an update. There was no readme or
    docs and I could never figure out how to get it to work, but then the
    best machine I have (other than my kids MBPs) is a Pentium M as well
    so maybe that is why I could never get it to work. Guess I'm stuck
    with VPC/2. I did hear recently that someone at Innotek was working
    on an OS/2 host just for self enjoyment, but you might want to contact
    Paul and ask him if he has done any more on it. His website is
    http://smedley.info/os2ports/index.php No mention of VB there, but
    there is a contact page.

    I see that. But I think it must be an obsolete one that they haven't
    updated, because the mention of OS/2 on their table of supported guests
    seems to claim that OS/2 support is complete. Anyway, I'm not going to
    jump into it until I have a clear idea of what it will or will not do.

    And I won't get to the point of installing it until December at the
    earliest.

    I did a build of Virtualbox 1.4 that never made it out publically as
    networking didn't work - it basically just got released to a few
    people on the netlabs IRC channel.

    Others have since built 1.5 - but networking is still an issue.

    I had a brief look at the latest svn virtualbox code last night but
    struck a build problem that I didn't have time to try and resolve....

    With Knut's help, I've resolved this and have a binary based on
    current Virtualbox svn.

    People who are interested should contact me via email at the usual
    address for a test zip before I release something publically.

    Not being very familiar with VirtualBox as a long time VirtualPC user - am
    I right that it's of no use to try to run it on an old Athlon XP 3000+
    system which does not have anything like multiple cores, hyperthreading or
    hardware virtualization capabilities?

    Hi Paul,

    i'm always still looking for a compiled version and read all
    news-letters about this topic.
    By my self i also download the Vbox.tar.bz2 and try to compile, but
    without success.

    So it would be very nice if you could send me those binary version for
    testing.

    My system is a DELL E521 AMD 64X2 5600+ with 2GB-Ram and the system is
    eCS2.0rc1 .

    regards

    Onno

    why not?

    I'm using it on an server with Pentium IV/2,8GHz on Linux and on a
    Pentium M/1,6Gz on Linux and also on my CoreDuo/2GHz on Windows and
    Linux and it works really good on all systems!

    But OS/2 as guest works ONLY on the last machine, because Intel-VT or
    AMD-V hardware-virtualization is a must - Windows XP as guest works well
    without that!

    I fully second that. I installed Windows 2000 testwise on the 1.4.0
    build and this also worked quite well here (no net however, as others
    have noted before).

    My machine is a AthlonXP 3000+ and the vm speed is absolutely comparable
    with VPC/2, harddisk access eventually being a bit faster, screen
    rendering being a bit slower.

    Kind regards,
    Herwig

    Herwig, I'm confused - are you running the 1.4.0 build on eCS or OS/2? I have
    a dual Opteron here and thought I needed a recent Intel CPU to run
    VirtualBox.

    Also, I gave Paul's latest build a try and get the same error others are
    reporting, shich I attributed to my CPUs being rather old AMDs:

    "Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object. The application will now
    terminate"

    Callee RC: 0xB0040154

    (The zeros could be Ds in fact - not sure with the font they are using)

    Cheers

    I'm guessing these are Qt symbols - do you have Qt installed from my
    build environment?

    Do you have a localconfig.kmk in the vbox directory that contains
    somethink like the following?
    VBOX_PATH_QT = /dev/qt/trunk
    LIB_QT = $(VBOX_PATH_QT)/lib/psqt.lib
    VBOX_DLL_QT = $(VBOX_PATH_QT)/bin/psqt.dll

    Only patch was to remove one symbol (_ASMMultU64ByU32DivByU32) from a
    couple of .def files.

    Rough build instructions:
    I started with
    http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/OS/2%...20instructions

    In addition - I found that:
    set VBOX_PATH_GLIB=/dev/virtualbox/vbox/tools/os2.x86/glibidl/gcc335
    set VBOX_PATH_LIBIDL=/dev/virtualbox/vbox/tools/os2.x86/glibidl/gcc335
    were necessary

    My build environment includes a pre-built Qt which makes things
    slightly easier....

    I have all those.

    First error listed is:
    kBuild: Linking VirtualBox
    weakld: error: Unresolved symbol (UNDEF) '__ZNK13QListViewItem6heightEv'.
    weakld: info: The symbol is referenced by:

    F:\vbox\out\os2.x86\release\obj\src\VBox\Frontends \VirtualBox\VirtualBox\gen\ui\
    VBoxGlobalSettingsDlg.o

    followed by about 12000 lines (!) of similar errors then

    Ignoring unresolved externals reported from weak prelinker.
    Error! E2028: _qApp is an undefined reference
    Error! E2028: __ZNK12QApplication9translateEPKcS1_S1_NS_8Encodin gE is an
    undefined reference
    Error! E2028: __ZN7QString10fromLatin1EPKci is an undefined reference
    Error! E2028: __ZN7QString8fromUtf8EPKci is an undefined reference

    (about 2000 of those!)

    Then 9000 lines of
    file
    F:\vbox\out\os2.x86\release\obj\src\VBox\Frontends \VirtualBox\VirtualBox\gen\moc
    \moc_QIWidgetValidator.o(moc_QIWidgetValidator.
    o): undefined symbol _qApp

    But it *compiles* OK up to there :-)
