    Il sorgente di VirtualBox-1.6.6-OSE.tar.bz2 compila e funziona perfettamente anche su Intrepid Ibex con kernel ubuntu 2.6.27-2-generic (compilata con gcc-4.2)

    @telperion
    mi hai anticipato e ti ringrazio, l’informazione è importante, avevo pensato di provarci stasera o domani ;)
    Forse, come dicevo anche con M0rF3uS,
    (http://adoldo.wordpress.com/guestbook/#comment-18443)
    sarebbe il caso di creare i repo per le versioni OSE e SVN.
    Bella la slide con il tuo commento in background ^__^
    Ciao,
