VirtualBox IPS Package for Solaris 11

Some time ago I had to write a script to convert currently downloadable VirtualBox Package into IPS Packages for Solaris 11. As I found the thing really useful, I decided to setup a repository to provide everyone easy access over these packages.

You can find the different version available here:

http://mdma.igh.cnrs.fr/vbox/en/catalog.shtml?show_all_versions=1&action=Refresh

To install one version, follow these steps:

First, add the publisher:

pkg set-publisher -g 'http://mdma.igh.cnrs.fr/vbox' solaris

Then refresh the publisher cache:

pkg refresh --full

And finally, install the virtualbox version you want:

pkg install virtualbox@4.2.12

You can also install the virtualbox’s additions:

pkg install virtualbox-extpack@4.2.12

If you have any question on that, don’t hesitate to contact me.
