Hello all,

I searched everywhere on the net but Im unable to find a reponse to my problem . I built custom kernel for ubuntu trusty & xenial and now virtualbox is not working anymore, the vbox modules are not handled by the kernel.

Therefore I tried to rebuild virtualbox from the sources got from the website but I got an error with qt5

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
cd /usr/src/VirtualBox-6.1.4 && ./configure --odir=/usr/src/VirtualBox-6.1.4/debian  --ose       --disable-extpack
Checking for environment: Determined build machine: linux.amd64, target machine: linux.amd64, OK.

Checking for Qt5:
  ** qt5 not found!

I installed all the packages qt5 I found the ubuntu repository, added the variables D_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./configure but same ...

Also, I see in the debian/control the the packages are virtualbox virtualbox-ose virtualbox-ose-dbg, impossible to find the standard packages availables in debian/ubuntu (virtualbox, virtualbox-dkms, virtualbox-qt). I downloaded the sources packages to get the rights debian/control but Im afraid the dependencies won't be correct , I don't know...

Please help :)

Probably not, at least that knows how to do it & reads this forum. The "Virutalbox OSE" subforum might be a better place to post,
