2roberto: Why do you think it is incompatible with an USB drive? I have no problems with this. You are, obviously, wrong.

2Andi B: Yes, it is a known problem. There could be the guest window not refreshed if the selector window present. This is some GUI lags. For now, to prevent this, you could try starting the VM without a selector window:

VirtualBox.exe --startvm <VM name>

Panorama is irrelevant here. I have this with SNAP too.

2ivan, rklipp: yes, I see the notice not disappearing from the screen, but after some clicking on "do not show this again" the message does not any more appear on further boots. This is working for me, at least. Maybe, you need some more attempts.

2roberto: So, what's the result? VBox hanged? -- Try to kill it with watchcat. Did not understood about mouse notepad and changing the icon.

2ivan: curl is the CURL exe (http downloader). You need libcurl, not curl. I suspect, curl is not needed in this case. Please try to use the latest package -- the version is encoded in a zip name. Well, we'll probably correct the packages list to not include curl.

I run win7 with 768 MB of RAM set. You can try disabling different visual effects and disable Aqua and set it to use "Classic" theme only. Anyway, we haven't 3D acceleration support, so that is a waste of resources. So, I did like this. WinXP SP3 is optimal to run on OS/2 host, it almost "flies". I set the VM RAM size to be 512 MB. Didn't seen any critical errors. Maybe, you have VAL too little (I have VALIMIT=3072 on my machine with 3500 MB of RAM available and VALIMIT=2500 on a machine with 3000 MB of physical RAM available). Also, I was not able to set more than 1700 MB of RAM to a single VM. The limit of RAM usage by applications is about 2100 MB. If I try to set more, the VM just panics (Guru meditation). This is a result of lack of available address space (remember that OS/2 is a 32-bit OS and Shared memory occupies some space in virtual memory, so, less private memory available, and vice versa).

Yes, .vhd is VirtualPC disks and can be used with VPC.

2ivan: I don't know -- maybe, you pressed another button -- there are two buttons at the right side of each notice.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the 'mouse pointer integration' notice bar that is at the top of the guest program window?  clicking on any of the icons on the right does nothing (the X and /) and if I try to click on a program icon under it it just fill up more screen space.

You can click on a "Do not show this message again" button at right of the message itself.

Is vbox supposed to support more than one processor core?  The test machine we built has a 2 core processor but I get an error if I try and use more that one core (most of our machines have 4 core processors as do our clients).

No, AFAIK, for using more than one processor, you need the hardware virtualization enabled, which is not supported on OS/2 host atm.

Is TAPOS2 part of VBOX? Who can fix it?

It is not the part of VBox. It was just allowed to use with VBox by GenMac author. TapOS2 support in VBox is now broken, not TapOS2 itself. It was removed from official VBox sources, for some reason, since some version, but I tried to return it back, with no success, yet. I did something wrong. Need to repair in next VBox builds.

2Dave Yeo: Just tried to remove idl20.dll from the LIBPATH -- VM creates and starts successfully without it. So, see no problems here.

2Dave Yeo: libidl seems to be only needed for VBox/XPCOM IDL compiler (xpidl.exe). It should be not needed to run VBox, only to build it.

2pete:
curl is curl7.dll
libgcc-fwd is gccXXX.dll and forwarders to it
libqt4 is all Qt libraries (QtCore, QtGui, QtNet etc.).

The list of DLL's requited is: aio, crypt32, crypto10, curl7, expat7, jpeg, libvpx2, libxml2, libcx0, png1616, pthr01, SDL12, ssl10, ssp, stdcpp, stdcpp6, supcpp6, urpo, vncclie0, vncserv0

Not sure if it's complete, but it seems. All required packages in zip archives are at Netlabs rpm repo server, http://rpm.netlabs.org, so you can take them one by one.

PS: I can try repacking all required DLL's if you'll acknowledge that all I listed above is sufficient (it was sufficient before, but I did not tested after that as I have no machine without UNIX ports installed).
Regarding Win7 SP1 -- I don't know. Maybe, someone else will help.

This does not make clear, what it does with USB mouse. (I have USB mouse and all works fine) What do you mean by "intro"? Are you installing WinXP or what? As I remember, WinXP does nothing with mouse, it is keyboard-driven. Does this OpenScad trap with Windows host? What does VBOX_USER_HOME with USB mouse? Nothing understood.

PS: Probably, you have problems with USB mouse on your host system. But this does nothing to do with VBox. I have USB mouse not moving on boot on my bootable OS/2 flash, and it works when I replug it. This is amouse problem with my mouse. Maybe, with yours, too. But this does nothing to do with VBox.

2roberto: just change the screen resolution in screen properties. I have 1440x900 in guest OS just fine. Disk drives? Do you mean the shared folders? Shared folders should work in guests. NAS should work too, either with ftp or SMB shares.

2Martin: Try to enable PAE/NX in VBox settings. BTW, I tried Ubuntu 15.10, and it worked fine. Only 1200 MB of RAM was too little for it, so it was that hell slow. But it is only with default "Unity" GUI. With LXDE it is almost acceptable. For LXDE, it is better to use Xubuntu, not plain Ubuntu. And, Knoppix LiveCD was quite fast.

2Doug Bissett: You are wrong. OS/2 version of VBox 1.6.x never supported VT-x/AMD-V. (because of missing features in OS/2 kernel). It only worked on other platforms. And, Readme mentions that VMX is not supported, so you must know if you have read readme.
