  1. cannot install VirtualBox-1.6.2 on Solaris snv_69

    Hi all,

    I downloaded VirtualBox-1.6.2-SunOS_amd64.tar.gz from
    http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads, and run:

    $ gunzip -c VirtualBox-1.6.2-SunOS_amd64.tar.gz | tar -vxf -

    x VirtualBox-1.6.2-SunOS-amd64-r31466.pkg, 78413312 bytes, 153151 tape
    blocks
    x VirtualBoxKern-1.6.2-SunOS-r31466.pkg, 42496 bytes, 83 tape blocks
    x autoresponse, 151 bytes, 1 tape blocks
    x ReadMe.txt, 2058 bytes, 5 tape blocks

    and then:

    $ sudo pkgadd -d VirtualBox-1.6.2-SunOS-amd64-r31466.pkg

    but I got this:

    Warning: Driver (vboxdrv) successfully added to system but failed to attach
    Aborting due to attach failure.
    Creating links...
    devfsadm: driver failed to attach: vboxdrv
    Done.

    Installation of was successful.

    the tail of /var/adm/messages is something like this:

    /platform/i86pc/kernel/drv/amd64/vboxdrv: undefined symbol
    'vbi_thread_create'
    WARNING: vboxdrv: unable to resolve dependency, module 'misc/vbi' not found

    Is there anything I did wrong here? Any help will be appreciated.

    Is there any reason you're running snv_69? That's a year old, and I
    wouldn't be surprised if VirtualBox needed a more recent build.

    According to the readme for 1.6.2, you *may* also need to install the
    other package in the tarball.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    You didn't RTFM which says:


    • Solaris hosts (32-bit and 64-bit4 ):
    – OpenSolaris (“Nevada” build 81 and higher)
    – Solaris 10 (u4 and higher, experimental support)

    You really didn't read the docs. First step - pkgadd the VirtualBoxKern
    package, THEN VirtualBox.

    Out of interest which FM is this? The ReadMe.txt in the tarball doesn't
    include this text.

    Thanks all. I'm sorry for bothering you with this, will check the
    manuals at first next time.
