Compiling VirtualBox 5.2.36 fails


Slackware 14.2 64-bit. The build failure:

kmk: *** No rule to make target `/tmp/VirtualBox-5.2.36/src/VBox/Installer/linux/blacklist-vboxpci.conf', needed by `/tmp/VirtualBox-5.2.36/out/linux.amd64/release/bin/blacklist-vboxpci.conf'. Stop.

Version 5.2.34 compiled fine some weeks ago. Same build script, different version.

Any ideas?

Thanks again.

Looks like the changes are Debian related. I created a sledge hammer patch to strip the new code.

Code:
