Edit: I found something on this and see that I'll just include my user in the proper group and I should be ok.'To compile virtualbox without the Qt4 GUI pass QT4=no to the script'I have a package called: qt-4.6.2_2d3d3e5-i486-1 installed - does this mean that I have Qt4 installed?'To enable the webservice pass WEBSERVICE=yes to the script. This adds gsoap to the list of required dependencies.'Why would I want to do this? If I did want to do this, how do I pass 'WEBSERVICE=yes' to the script? Also, to do this I would have to install gsoap first, right?'If you want to attach VirtualBox to a VDE network you will need vde2.I don't need this for my stand alone world, right?This requires acpica, and the virtualbox-kernel package is needed at runtime.'Does this mean that VDE network requires acpica or that this SlackBuild require acpica?
