     3This page describes how to build !VirtualBox OSE, once you have gotten its source code from our Subversion server, as described on the [wiki:"Downloads"] page).

     5The sources are the same, no matter whether you build on Linux or Windows. But the build instructions differ. 
     6 
     7To build, use the `kmk` command after you have entered our development environment. This is the `make` command of [wiki:"kBuild"], our homegrown build system. (To avoid confusion with an already installed make program, our make has been renamed to `kmk`). With kBuild, the `BUILD_TYPE` environment variable determines what type is built and can be `release` (enable compiler optimizations, strip debug and profiling code), `debug` (for debugging) or `profile` (for profiling). The default is `release`. 
     8 
     9The default build target is `all`, which produces all executables in the `out/{platform}/{release|debug}/` directories.
