VirtualBox on Indiana
By Liane Praza-Oracle on Mar 10, 2008
I've taken the leap and converted my desktop to run Indiana Developer Preview 2. It's looking pretty nice so far, but as the Preview title suggests, running this as a primary development machine is still a bit on the bleeding edge. So, I'm filing or updating bugs at http://defect.opensolaris.org as they pop up.
$ /usr/bin/VirtualBox ld.so.1: VirtualBox: fatal: libX11.so.4: open failed: No such file or directory Killed
So, I found (well, David pointed me at) Indiana bug 512, which describes the missing symlink. Since it's just a missing link, I was easily able to work around it.
# cd /usr/lib/amd64 # ln -s ../../X11/lib/64/libX11.so.6 libX11.so.4
Now I can launch
/usr/bin/VirtualBox, and am installing Nevada right now.
