No VirtualBox package?

Post by HelgeCPH »

Hej, I am on a fresh install of GhostBSD (22.06.18) on which I tried to install VirtualBox. However, there does not seem to be a package for it in the repository:

Code: Select all

~> pkg search virtualbox
phpvirtualbox-6.1              AJAX Web Interface for VirtualBox
phpvirtualbox-legacy-5.2.1_1   AJAX Web Interface for VirtualBox
virtualbox-ose-additions-6.1.36 VirtualBox additions for FreeBSD guests
virtualbox-ose-additions-legacy-5.2.44_3 VirtualBox additions for FreeBSD guests
virtualbox-ose-additions-nox11-6.1.36 VirtualBox additions for FreeBSD guests
virtualbox-ose-additions-nox11-legacy-5.2.44_3 VirtualBox additions for FreeBSD guests
virtualbox-ose-kmod-6.1.36     VirtualBox kernel module for FreeBSD
virtualbox-ose-kmod-legacy-5.2.44_6 VirtualBox kernel module for FreeBSD
 
Since it should be called virtualbox-ose (see https://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php/Gui ... n_GhostBSD), I tried to install it, but it really seems to not exist in the repository:

Code: Select all

~> sudo pkg install virtualbox-ose
Updating GhostBSD repository catalogue...
GhostBSD repository is up to date.
All repositories are up to date.
Updating database digests format: 100%
pkg: No packages available to install matching 'virtualbox-ose' have been found in the repositories
Since there is no package for it, I tried to install it from the ports. However, this does not work since a dependency texlive-texmf stops the build, see below

Code: Select all

===>   Registering installation for texlive-texmf-20210325 as automatic
Installing texlive-texmf-20210325...
pkg-static: Fail to chown /usr/local/share/texmf-dist/fonts/afm/public/nimbus15/.pkgtemp.ztm-RegObl.afm.JmoGp9nv2afN:Bad file descriptor

Stop.
make[1]: stopped in /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose
Perhaps that is the reason why there is no package for VirtualBox in the repository either? I tried to check http://builder2.ghostbsd.org/data/ghost ... build.html. But I cannot find anything relevant there.

I would appreciate any help. I would prefer installing VirtualBox as package and not from ports.

Thanks for reporting. I fixed the ports this morning https://github.com/ghostbsd/ghostbsd-po ... b670f2dc11.

I will build the package.

Hej @ericbsd, thank you very much for fixing the issue! Now, I can install VirtualBox from the package repository and it is working as expected.
