Tips for compiling VirtualBox OSE on lenny
I compiled VirtualBox OSE from source on my machine.
Everything went fine, till I got an error from VirtualBox - libpython2.6.so not found.
then I did the following -
root@indiaforce:/usr/local/lib# locate libpython2.6.so
root@indiaforce:/usr/local/lib# cp `locate libpython2.6.so` /usr/local/lib/
I then copied this libpython2.6.so.1.0 in /usr/local/lib and renamed it to libpython2.6.so
VirtualBox OSE then got compiled without any errors.
