2Andi B.: Network is just the same as it was in older version. NAT just works, as previously. But TAPOS2 is broken -- needs to be repaired. Ping/tracerte not working -- yes. But I suspect it is the same as on Windows an Linux hosts.

2ivan: but I doubt that if rpm/yum is not certified to use on your environments then VBox will be certified, So, to install VBox it should be the same problems with VBox being accepted for use. Also, I doubt that the beta version of VBox should be at all installed into production machines for critical use :) So in those places, where Vbox can be used, yum/rpm can be used too.

But VT-x/AMD-V is not supported on OS/2 host atm, as some required features are missing from OS/2 kernel. So, still no way to start OS/2 guest on OS/2 host, as it requires hardware virtualization. Though, maybe, software virtualization will be enhanced, but it requires a lot of work.

There seems to be some read errors when reading the boot CD, but checking/unchecking the "Passthrough" checkbox may help, as it switches between different disk access methods, one of which may work better.

So, what's the message that OS/2 will not work ?

what do you mean?

2Gregory Shaw: Please, Install rpm packages listed at Netlabs VBox project first: No need in VBOX_USER_HOME, no such variable needed. And, ISO's should work, as well as physical CD's/DVD's (Indeed, physical harddisk, CD's and floppies are supported. But floppy access is not very stable atm). You need to capture the CD/DVD from VBox menu: Devices->Optrical disks->Drive X:. Though, booting from a CD may not work as this feature is not very stable, yet. Also, you may try Direct Access/Passthrough option in CD properties (Media page in VM properties), maybe, it will help.

but I don't see any reason to not use yum/rpm. It were created to make life easier. And yes, all DLL's are available as zips -- every rpm package is doubled by a zip archive. These zips are uploaded in parallel to rpm's to the same http/ftp server where the repository resides. Just look at, for example, But you'll need to cherry-pick each zip, which is way harder than to just install a list of rpms with deps.

2ivan: Additions iso can be downloaded from download section: All needed DLL' can be downloaded from yum repo (They are listed at Netlabs project page: or in the readme file). Not sure why release maintainers didn't put the iso in distribution (I always put it in each build)
