SOLVED get-virtualbox typo
  • erniaernia April 2010
    at line 63 of /usr/bin/get-virtualbox there's a typo which prevents you to install virtualbox.
    remove the "+" at the start of the line to get it working

    Hi ernia,

    Can you please copy the line instead of the line?
    Line number does not seem to be too helpful because of the patch studded with ++
    See here:
  • erniaernia April 2010
    sorry jozee.
    it's at line 10 of
    i think that there should be only one plus in that row, because the final result in get-virtualbox is
    # Add Slitaz support to VirtualBox installer.
    +patch -p1 <<'EOT'<br />--- install-ori/ Thu Dec 17 14:37:35 2009

    the offending plus is the one before patch -p1
  • erniaernia April 2010
    not to sound brash but i've checked and i think that now there should be the opposite problem: should not be one + at line 10?
  • teotl31teotl31 April 2010
    Not understand, you took away the + and it works? because I take it off and gave me more errors
  • erniaernia April 2010
    are you talking about my first post in this topic or my previous post?
    if you are editing /usr/bin/get-virtualbox you should find a line like this:
    +patch -p1 <<'EOT'</pre>
    remove the plus and you're done.
    don't edit the .u patch file, it's not needed. if it does not work reinstall get-virtualbox --forced and edit again get-virtualbox as i told you.
  • teotl31teotl31 April 2010
    yes im editing /usr/bin/get-virtualbox and editing this line like this
    patch -p1 <<'EOT'<br />-and reinstall in terminal
    tazpkg get-install virtualbox --forced

    and gave me this error

    creating directory install
    verifyng archive integrity... all good
    uncompressing virtualbox for linux installation...
    patching file
    patch: hunk#2 FAILED at 252
    path:1 out of 2 hunk FAILED
    patching file
    patch:hunk #1 FAILED at 63
    patch:1 out of 1 hunk FAILED

    and i dont know whats happen in this case
  • erniaernia April 2010
    you are right, i have omitted to specify that after you have edited /usr/bin/get-virtualbox you should run it and not tazpkg get-install virtualbox --forced.
    the forced options overwrites files needed to install virtualbox and so it overwrites /usr/bin/get-virtualbox too.
    EDIT i'm probably wrong in this first section
    if it does not work again and the output of
    ls -la /usr/bin/patch
    is a link to busybox then you could try
    tazpkg get-install patch
    and retry
    please, let me know if it works.
  • erniaernia April 2010
    ok, i can confirm that you need to install the real patch
    tazpkg get-install patch

    i've removed both virtualbox and patch and i have same output as you:
