Description

Hi,

Gentoo build nstructions located at  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux%20build%20instructions need a couple of appendages.

Dependencies section: emerge -av (++ makeself)

By default vbox configure script searches for makeself only at /usr/bin/makeself, while the default emerge of makeself only provides /usr/bin/makeself.sh.

Extra symlink required: ln -s /usr/bin/makeself.sh /usr/bin/makeself

Will now build.

Change History

Update,

emerge -av (++ makeself texlive-latex)

Could not get to build unless --disable-docs is enabled, errors with kmk[2]: * usr/src/vbox/out/linux.amd64/release/obj/manual/en_US/UserManual.pdf Error 1

Cheers
