OK, I was able to install it. But I can't do any actions with it.
Can't start/stop VMs.

I get this on FFox client:
500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from
fulfilling the request.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/cherrypy/_cprequest.py",
line 606, in respond
    cherrypy.response.body = self.handler()

    return self.callable(*self.args, **self.kwargs)
  File "/root/Linstall/vboxweb/content.py", line 111, in control
    session = self.mgr.getSessionObject(self.vbox)
  File "./vboxweb.py", line 61, in getSessionObject
    return xpcom.components.classes["@virtualbox.org/Session;1"].createInstance()
NameError: global name 'xpcom' is not defined
Main problem is that I'm not sure if I installed SDK correctly. How to
install VBox SDK ?
