Call for tester: VirtualBox 3.1.2 for FreeBSD #take 2

Howdy beat@ called few mins ago a secound CFT for the 3.1.2 release, unfortunaltely
we have updated the guest additions to a recent snapshot to fix a kernel module
problem but see self the mail and changelog from him here:

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:

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:

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

If you install virtualbox-ose-additions on a FreeBSD guest add this to

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“

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

    I am going to be repurposing a server to FreeBSD 8.x and am curious. Do I have to run X in order to run Virtualbox? Or can I roll this sort of how VMWare does ESX?
