gsoap is already the newest version.

I guess some config is missing?

Never had this issue with Debian but here is what you would need to do if it can't find the path. Add this to the LocalConfig.kmk
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBOX_GSOAP_INSTALLED := 1
VBOX_PATH_GSOAP := <absolute path>/gsoap
VBOX_PATH_GSOAP_BIN    := <absolute path>/gsoap/bin

custom  import  plugin  WS

No bin.. should I try to reinstall the package maybe?

I've launched the build with your settings (and replacing the path), we'll see how it goes.

VBox uses an older version of gsoap and the new one may not work properly. IIRC this is only needed to build the webservice.
On newer OSes where they changed gsoap I normally install the older version in my user land and be done with it. I know this was an issue with fedora but I guess Debian has finally updated it too.

gsoap version 2.7.9 is the one I keep handy. It does not need to be installed installed

The build went fine, I could install, here is the session from the install command :
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view

VirtualBox has been installed successfully.

You will find useful information about using VirtualBox in the user manual
  /opt/VirtualBox/UserManual.pdf
and in the user FAQ
  http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/User_FAQ

We hope that you enjoy using VirtualBox.

So in the end, it did install in the /opt dir like you said, even tho I've set the variable in LocalConfig.kmk :

VBOX_GSOAP_INSTALLED := 1
VBOX_PATH_GSOAP := /usr/share/gsoap
VBOX_PATH_GSOAP_BIN    := /usr/share/gsoap/bin
noteirak@debian:~/vbox$


Just to be certain, I've tried to run vboxmanage :

/opt/VirtualBox/VBoxManage: error while loading shared libraries: VBoxDDU.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And obviously, running a strace to check it out, it does try to look for it in /usrb/lib/virtualbox...

So I created /usr/lib/virtualbox & did some symlink :
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
noteirak@debian:~$ sudo mkdir /usr/lib/virtualbox
noteirak@debian:~$ sudo ln -s /opt/VirtualBox/* /usr/lib/virtualbox
noteirak@debian:~$ vboxmanage -version
4.2.51_OSEr43953
noteirak@debian:~$


Everyone is happy.

Finally trying what I wanted to for days :
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
noteirak@debian:~$ java -Dvbox.home=/usr/lib/virtualbox -cp vboxjxpcom.jar:sample.jar rrr
VirtualBox version: 4.2.51_OSE

Sooo... not fixed in SVN :(

Perryg, I just can't thank you enough for your guidance & help! - This is a very good experience and I will definitly get my VBox from source from now on.

My last humble request would be to see if we can fix the fact it has been installed in /opt/Virtualbox

Working on it. I always use /opt (my choice) so building one now to see why it failed for you. One thing that comes to mind is if you already had VirtualBox and did not use the VBox uninstaller it may confuse the install.

Edit: my choice for using /opt is everything is located in one single location. As much as I build it would be time consuming going to different locations to check/test the build files.

For some reason or the other the LSB settings do not work in the OSE run build. The config settings that should be overridden with the LocalConfig.kmk don't work. I seem to remember this happened a ways back but since I did not build to LSB compliance on my OSE run builds it did not matter to me. If you want to build with LSB you will need to build the deb package. Basically the same configuration and you use the same lines in the LocalConfig.kmk but it is located in the following.

/trunk/src/VBox/Installer/linux/debian/LocalConfig.kmk (already created)
Then follow the instructions here: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic ... 31&t=43102

You can actually use the same build env. but I build both so I have separate build env. for each.
