  There is a new forum at - 'Virtualbox on OS/2 Hosts'! can an official release be far behind?

  Thanks for the clarification... yes, file numbers that large would be a bear to DND. The filter function you show would definitely be a great thing to have.

  I've always used the built-in media player. Maybe I'm missing something.... what does this have the media player doesn't?

  Do a web search on 'OS2MT'. This is a useful utility for upgrading various components of OS/2. I believe that includes the USB drivers....

  The latest is working great here - both Win2000 and Fedora 8. Pointer integration and shared folders works with both. I am using the VirtualBox.exe GUI and everything seems to work except I cannot save a snapshot - no big loss. There is still no TCP networking, CD-ROM (except mounted file), floppy (except mounted file), com port or sound in a VM though. Using VBoxBFE.exe I still have to 'triple-click' on icons to open them, and fonts are often chopped-off at the top - these don't happen using VirtualBox.exe.

  I have started messing around with OpenVPN, and got it to connect through a tunnel from the guest to the host, but I haven't been able to get my head around all the routing that needs to be done to make it usable for internet browsing on the guest yet. Even following instructions on the OpenVPN website hasn't got me anywhere...

  Anyone else try to set up OpenVPN in a guest yet?...

  Get the latest additions here: . I haven't tried them myself yet. I have tried the latest build archive and can now start the VirtualBox GUI. Looks impressive. I also am not able to mount any CD or floppy drive. I tried creating a machine using default values and booting Damn Small Linux iso and it booted properly, but I can't use my keyboard in it at all. Mouse works OK, but I can't get the mouse out using the right <CTRL> key. Luckily <CTRL> <ESC> brings up the eCS task list. I've got to read more of the manual....

Thanks again to Paul!

   Hmmm... I just noticed that VBoxC.dll listed at is missing from this build archive. Could this be a problem?

 No success here... like the others I can't get it to recognize any boot medium. I have tried to boot from floppy and CDROM. It always fails with the message: FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted. I have tried every switch on the command line listed by VBoxBFE but nothing helps.

I also tried VBoxBFE -m 128 from a command line and get: 'Failed to load VMMR0.r0  VBox status code: -102 (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).

I notice at '' that there are several *.r0 and *.gc files listed that are not in the archive of the build - are they required?

  I tried your build... don't have any trouble booting with vboxdrv.sys, but trying to start VirtualBox results in 'Failed to create VirtualBox COM object. Callee RC: 0xBDD4D154'. Trying to start VBoxSVC results in 'ERROR: Failed to get IPC service (rc=80040154). XPCOM server has shutdown.' SUPInstall gives 'Installation failed rc=-37'. All this on a Intel P4 machine running eCS 2.0rc2. I'll keep trying....

  Thanks for building VirtualBox!
