Ticket #814 (closed defect: fixed)

Paths and package names do not match in OSE debian package

Reported by: vezult Owned by: frank
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.2 Keywords: OSE, debian
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

the debian/rules file uses $(package) to build path names, meaning that the package is installed in /usr/{lib,share}/virtualbox-ose.

However, various scripts (init script, VBox.sh) expect the package to be installed in /usr/{lib,share}/virtualbox, which causes breakage.

I've attached a patch to fix this, though I'm not sure it's optimal.

Ok, I guess you are referring to the debian/ directory of the OSE tarball, right? Thanks for the report, we will fix this.

I've fixed this issue a little bit different. I actually changed all pathes to /usr/lib/virtualbox-ose and /usr/share/virtualbox-ose. The current SVN should work fine.
