VBox cannot be installed on Mac OS X Snow Leopard machines running a 64bit kernel -> fixed in SVN

Description

Hi,

in your VBoxKEXTs.pkg package, you are using a script to check for the machine architecture and whether it is supported by VirtualBox or not.

However, your check:

if test "uname -m" != "i386"; then

exit 112 # (112 = 96 + 16)

fi

is wrong, as uname -m can also report "x86_64" on a machine running a 64bit Kernel.

Please add this to your check as well.

Best regards,

Mihai

Thanks for the report. It is fixed in SVN and the fix will be available with the next version of VirtualBox.
