Vbox Icon

So - I finally got around to reinstalling VB on my Ultra-4.

Here are the steps I used to install the 64 bit version of VB 3.2.8 under RAIDiator 4.2.13 - all worked perfectly first time (though hope I haven’t forgotten to copy/paste something)

cd /c/backup
apt-get update
apt-get install build-essential amd64-libs lib64stdc++6 bzip2 lib64z1 lzma
apt-get --reinstall install libc6-amd64
wget -q http://www.readynas.com/download/GPL/RNDP6xxx_4.2.13_WW_src.zip
unzip -q RNDP6xxx_4.2.13_WW_src.zip -d ./GPL cd GPL/linux-2.6.33.6
make ARCH=x86_64 make prepare
ln -s /c/backup/GPL/linux-2.6.33.6 /usr/src/linux
export KERN_DIR=/usr/src/linux
wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/3.2.8/VirtualBox-3.2.8-64453-Linux_amd64.run
chmod 755 VirtualBox-3.2.8-64453-Linux_amd64.run
./VirtualBox-3.2.8-64453-Linux_amd64.run
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start

Note: I’ve also posted these steps in the ReadyNAS Developers Forum - I’m posting them again here before they get lost in yet more pages of posts

Update 17-Oct-2010:

VirtualBox 3.2.10 working fine on RAIDiator 4.2.15, though a kernel recompilation is needed for upgrading
