VirtualBox Solaris / OpenSolaris Build 95 / 96

Installed Solaris Nevada build 96 . Then installed VirtualBox on top of it.  While starting VirtualBox from command line it hangs giving out "ERROR: 0 bytes read from child process"  . Found the work around . Follow the below procedure to fix it.

Move the VBoxSVC to VBoxSVC.real

#mv /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC.real

Create a shell script for VBoxSVC and export the LD_NODIRECT and then exec the real VBoxSVC

#cat > /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC

#!/bin/sh
LD_NODIRECT=1
export LD_NODIRECT
exec /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC.real "$@"

End the script and make sure you chmod +x the script 

#chmod +x  /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC

Looks like one could hit this issue with Solaris Nevada Build 95 too.
