    v31 v32  
    8686You can run !VirtualBox directly from the build target directory (`out/solaris.x86/release/bin/`). But first of all, you must install the !VirtualBox kernel module. There is a script {{{src/VBox/HostDrivers/Support/solaris/mod.sh}}} which does this for you. It requires you to either install sudo or run it as root. 
    8787 
     88{{{ 
     89cd out/solaris.amd64/release/bin 
     90}}} 
     91 
     92For the other drivers you will need to copy the driver file and .conf file if any into the appropriate locations. Current drivers include vboxflt (bridged networking, host-only networking), vboxnet (host-only networking), vboxusbmon, vboxusb (USB drivers). 
     93{{{ 
     94/platform/i86pc/kernel/drv/       (32-bit drivers and .conf files) 
     95/platform/i86pc/kernel/drv/amd64  (64-bit drivers) 
     96}}} 
     97 
     98And then run as root/sudo: 
     99{{{ 
     100vboxconfig.sh --setupdrivers 
     101}}} 
     102 
    88103Finally, you can start one of the frontends, e.g. 
    89104{{{ 
    90 cd out/solaris.x86/release/bin 
    91 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=".:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" ./VirtualBox 
     105./VirtualBox 
    92106}}} 
    93 Note that the {{{LD_LIBRARY_PATH=".:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"}}} is required because we have to find our {{{.so}}} files and the output directory is not in the system's library path.
