Question OSE version of VirtualBox reports missing piece--what is it?


Hi Folks,

Having given up on trying to get Xen to work on RedHat 5 (never mind about that mess), I thought I'd give the open source edition of VirtualBox a try.

VirtualBox-2.2.2_OSE/config

runs happily until this point:

***** Checking iasl *****
** iasl (variable IASL) not found!

This appears to be part of the ACPI Component Architecture (Intel's implementation of the ACPI spec). So, I found the source for that and ran make (which is all it says you have to do to install it). Well, now I have some .c, .o files and an executable iasl file (which, by its --help output, is indeed, the iasl compiler). All of which is just sitting in the download directory. Anyone know if I need any of the .c or .c files for this sucker to run--or where it would typically be installed?

Thanks!

John

OK. For anyone else fighting this fight. It seemed to be happy w/ iasl in /usr/bin (not sure if the .o's and so on need to be in the include path or not at this point). Now it wants Qt4--back to the search engines....

Well, of course the RHEL version of Qt is not a recent enough version--sheesh (I wonder again about just blowing away the RHEL setups and installing Ubuntu).... Installing the full SDK now... And, VirtualBox config doesn't like where it landed either. Nuts!
