Hi,

First of all thanks a lot for all the valuable feedback. We have updated
the ports to fix the reported problems:
- - virtualbox-ose-additions:
  - Update to a more recent svn snapshot. The kernel module from 3.1.2
was not loadable.
  - Adjust pkg-descr and COMMENT to make it clear what additions are
good for (Patch by dougb@)
  - Install rc.d style start script to load the kernel module
  - Add check if kernel sources are available
  - Mark BROKEN on FreeBSD 6.x

- - virtualbox-ose-kmod:
  - Install rc.d style start script to load the network related kernel
modules in correct order
  - Mark BROKEN on FreeBSD 6.x

- - virtualbox-ose:
  - Update pkg-message to reflect recent changes
  - Add missing PulseAudio dependency

New version of the tarball is available here:
https://svn.bluelife.at/nightlies/virtualbox-port-r621.tar.gz

Virtualbox 3.1.2 no longer requires procfs. If no other program requires
/proc mounted you could remove /proc from /etc/fstab.

If you are using the kernel modules for bridged or host-only networking
please load the virtualbox kernel module via /boot/loader.conf:
vboxdrv_load="YES"

Then remove vboxnetflt or vboxnetadp entries from /boot/loader.conf and
add this to /etc/rc.conf and reboot the machine afterwards:
vboxnet_enable="YES"

If you install virtualbox-ose-additions on a FreeBSD guest add this to
/etc/rc.conf:
vboxguest_enable="YES"

The vboxvideo_drv should be recognized by "Xorg -configure". If not, use
something like this in your xorg.conf for the video card:
Section "Device"
        ### Available Driver options are:-
        ### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
        ### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
        ### [arg]: arg optional
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "vboxvideo"
        VendorName  "InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH"
        BoardName   "VirtualBox Graphics Adapter"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"
EndSection

To use vboxmouse_drv please adjust the mouse section in your xorg.conf
like this:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "vboxmouse"
EndSection

Thanks,
Beat, on behalf of the FreeBSD Vbox Team
