Compile VBOX 4.06 FAILED WHEN I DISABLE XPCOM

Postby xiheasas » 10. May 2011, 10:30

Hi all,

I have recently downloaded the VirtualBox-4.0.6_OSE from the website and tried to build the binary myself. As I just need a tiny VBOX system, so I disable most of the options, and my configuration is as follow:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
./configure --disable-python --disable-java  --disable-pulse --enable-vnc  --build-headless --build-libxml2 --build-libxslt --disable-docs --disable-xpcom

When the configuration is done, I compile the source using kmk but received error info
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
kBuild: Compiling VBoxAuth - VirtualBox-4.0.6_OSE/src/VBox/HostServices/auth/pam/VBoxAuthPAM.c
kBuild: Linking VBoxAuth
kBuild: Installing VBoxAuth => VirtualBox-4.0.6_OSE/out/linux.x86/release/bin/VBoxAuth.so
kmk: *** No rule to make target `VirtualBox-4.0.6_OSE/out/linux.x86/release/lib/VBoxCOM.a', needed by `VirtualBox-4.0.6_OSE/out/linux.x86/release/obj/VBoxAuthSimple/VBoxAuthSimple.so'.  Stop

Is there anything I can do about it?

P.S. I disable the VBoxAuthSimple in Makefile, and kmk passes. But I have no idea whether this would affect the VBOX's function.

Just go ahead, it should not harm. But be warned that the VBoxBFE frontend is more or less unsupported.

For hte record:
I think building VirtualBox-4.3.0 with --disable-xpcom I hit this bug .
Now I don't have time to check it again , I just reenable xpcom ...
