VBox OS/2 Build 8 - virtualbox-svn-20080218-os2.zip

February 20, 2008 by Mark Dodel

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Mark Dodel

Paul Smedley has another unofficial build of the Open Source Edition of
VirtualBox for OS/2 host. Note there is no official OS/2 host, but some
Innotek employees and others have worked on a version for OS/2 based on the
Open Source Edition of VirtualBox. I have not yet tried this version, but
the previous versions did not have working sound or direct device support
(you need to make an ISO of a CD to access it). And the Tap network driver
hung my system on netbind. I think this was related to my also having the
VPC/2 network driver installed or my use of the GenMac wifi driver. NAT
networking as well as shared folders worked fine.

Get Vbox/2 here: http://www.smedley.info/os2ports/index.php?page=virtualbox

Whatsnew:
Build 8 14. feb 2008
----------------------------------------
- Fixed SMP issues. QT GUI should work more reliable now.

Known issues:
- Vbox/2 can't access physical devices (cdrom floppy HD comport), only images
- OS/2 MCP2 should be supported as guest OS, but is doesn't work
when using this host version.
- You can currently only run 1 Vbox/2 at a time.
- Shared clipboard is not implemented yet.
Networking: HIF/TAP networking is only working in SDL interface
