Is part of virtualbox which refuses to build for some time, either due to exhausting the virtual address
space of 4GB or in extremely helpful errors like 'Vbox.sh not found".

Yep, upstream (the authors) don't even bother to compile the code on 32-bit..
..I'm inclined to blacklist the whole load of virtualbox..

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

Thank you for your efforts and for the detailed error description.

I googled by your error string and found this

https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19494

They have just fixed the error and the fix is going to be in the next 6.1.x release.

Btw,
It takes 7 days for them to fix a problem for 32-bit.

Hello,

6.1.8 is out https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm … est-utils/

and the fix is on the board
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19494

Could you update the package
virtualbox-guest-utils
?

Thank you.

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

Hmm, was abumann actually building 6.1.8 there, because his path suggests he was building 6.1.6, which according to that ticket won't build on 32-bit machines.

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

Currently failing with a missing VBoxCOM.a library which leads to

kmk: *** No rule to make target '/build/virtualbox/src/VirtualBox-6.1.8/out/linux.x86/release/lib/VBoxCOM.a', needed by '/build/virtualbox/src/VirtualBox-6.1.8/out/linux.x86/release/obj/vboximg-mount/vboximg-mount'.  Stop.

libxpcom is enabled, as far as I can tell. Currently diffing some 32-bit and 64-bit build logs (to find the 10 differences
in the picture).

No, for some reason 32-bit doesn't build xpcom, disabling vboximg-mount for now..

Actually, I don't use the command https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch05. … ximg-mount

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

Virtualbox-guest-utils isn't listed as being broken, but maybe the build systems being too clever for me.  FWIW the virtualbox package build fails with error:

==> Starting package_virtualbox()...
install: cannot stat 'VBox.sh': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package_virtualbox().
    Aborting...

That sounds like a straightforward fix to me.  But it may not be the actual problem you are looking for /dons robe and waves hands in an alec guinness manner wink

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

VBox.sh missing is only one issue. If XPCOM just doesn't compile it has other consequences for all tools communicating
to the virtualbox service (web interfaces for instance like https://code.google.com/archive/p/vboxweb/).
And I fear other things fail not only a missing VBox.sh so more files might be missing.

I can PM my credentials to you to the https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker if it helps. There you can post a new ticket https://www.virtualbox.org/newticket

Or you can post full log files, subject/description of the problem right here. I will repost it to the Virtualbox BT.

Re: virtualbox-guest-utils version (6.0.8) is too old, needed (6.1.14)

Hello,

Hope you can help me sort out this issue.

Due to the old version, I can't update the whole system as after the full upgrade I've faced the following problem.
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/18862

I guess the problem has been fixed in the newest Guest Additions
as it's said here
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog-6.0
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog

Btw
VirtualBox 6.0.8 was released a year ago on May 13 2019
