Thanks for your answer.
2. Yes, considering that
you need to run an 'svcadm restart virtualbox-run-once' service that
gets installed with the first installation. Then, when an upgrade is
done, this service is responsible to upgrade drivers and/or services at
its next start. (so either manually, or, indeed after a reboot).
that make sense?
