Virtual Box 4.0 FreeBSD 9

Postby el_report » 24 Dec 2010, 11:42

Good day.
Question about VirtualBox 4.0 under FreeBSD.
Last my result - full build without errors, but when try to [CMD=" "]kldload vboxdrv[/CMD] --->
Code: Select all
link_elf: symbol _Z6strlenPKc undefined

What can I do with it?
When subj will be in ports? :)

Best wishes.

It was just released. Give porters time to do the job.
Or port it yourself, and submit pr.

Porting of complex software usually doesn't involve only version number changing and recalculation of distfile hash.

Building without errors doesn't mean, that software was compiled correctly for specific OS.
Probably some patching is necessary
