How to install VirtualBox 3.0 on OpenSolaris

The difficult is…have more than 1 file to install…..
We, frequently see one file to install, but now we have two files.
one for interfaces like usb, boot order, cd image, it is kernel interface package…
and another only VirtualBox.
Here is the snapshot, step by step to install it. Then here we have the pkg..we are extracting it to some directory ( what you want).

We can see 4 files.
2 is .pkg, so we need it.

After you extracted you can open the terminal and go to the directory which you extrated the files.

As we can see. we have 2 files.
WE must “execute” first the VirtualBox.Kern….

pfexec pkgadd -G -d VirtualBoxKern-3.0.2-SunOS-r49928.pkg
You say “all”, to install all of it.

Now you install the second pkg,

pfexec pkgadd -G -d VirtualBox-3.0.2-SunOS-r49928.pkg

The first file is VirtualBox kernel interface package, you must install it first!!!
After you install the main VirtualBox package:
ready..
VirtualBox working!!!

This installation I did because I had no internet connection… I have a cd wich has many software to install on OpenSolaris…. but if you have internet connection I will post later how to do that in a repository from Sun… (you be registered )…

  1. Why have all this pain. All you need is to add the OpenSolaris Extra publisher and you have virtualbox packages ready to be installed from pkg(5) it is as simple as that.

    • I know about OpenSolaris Extra ..I did it because I had internet connection and had an opensolaris resources dvd…
      so, you have no internet connection and have the vbox’s pkg’s follow these steps..
      soon I will post how to add the extra repository and install vbox…
      😀
