my environment is FC18 64bit

I want to build VirtualBox-4.3.14.

but configure fail.

Checking for libcap library: found, OK.
Checking for compiler.h: compiler.h not found, OK.
Checking for 32-bit support:
Cannot compile 32-bit applications (missing headers and/or libraries)!
Check the file /vm/VirtualBox-4.3.14/configure.log for detailed error inform
Check /vm/VirtualBox-4.3.14/configure.log for details
#cat configure.log
return 0;
using the following command line:
gcc -m32 -O -Wall -o /vm/VirtualBox-4.3.14/.tmp_out /vm/VirtualBox-4.3.14/.tmp_src.c
In file included from /usr/include/features.h:399:0,
from /usr/include/stdint.h:25,
from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/4.7.2/include/stdint.h:3,
from /vm/VirtualBox-4.3.14/.tmp_src.c:1:
/usr/include/gnu/stubs.h:7:27: fatal error: gnu/stubs-32.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

You might want to see this ... 31&t=35892

Also you need to read ... 31&t=52330

IIRC 32-bit is needed to build the guest additions. You should be able to configure to not build the additions and get around this issue, but it helps to have them.

Moving to the OSE section.
