hello arslan,

any plans for 64-bit virtualbox and modules packages? if not, did you use a script or keep a log when creating virtualbox-ose.tcz and virtualbox-ose-modules-3.0.21-tinycore.tcz, and if so, might i use that in order to create virtualbox-ose64.tcz and virtualbox-ose-modules-3.0.21-tinycore64.tcz? i've hit occasional kernel panics using virtualbox-ose.tcz and virtualbox-ose-modules-3.0.32-x1-rt52.tcz with tinyrt-3.0.32-x1-rt52 (+pae) as the host system, and am interested in a virtualbox tcz, maybe even the newer version of it (4.2.4), for 64-bit tinycore.

many thanks,
webb

Virtualbox is known to be of low quality (those kernel panics). Have you considered KVM?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Yes, it should work well. Remember to install the kvm- extension too, for the hw support.
