Hi,
i'm trying to build linux guest additions starting from VirtualBox-2.2.0_OSE sources,
i have a doubt/problem with the OpenGL part shipped with the vboxvideo driver
(vboxvideo_drv):

When the build is complete i only get (talking only about VBoxOGL* files):
VBoxOGLcrutil.so
VBoxOGLerrorspu.so

while these files (that are actually shipped with the Addition Iso) are missing:
VBoxOGL.so
VBoxOGLarrayspu.so
VBoxOGLfeedbackspu.so
VBoxOGLpackspu.so
VBoxOGLpassthroughspu.so

Are these (missing) targets/files unavailable because the source code is not shipped
with the VirtualBox_OSE edition?

The resulting driver will only work for the OSE edition and not for the PUEL one?
(Note: I'm assuming that the resulting driver will lack full OpenGL support and is
not suitable for linux guests running on PUEL editions)

Best regards

Alessio Cassibba
