VBox Guest Additions: A slightly late final progress report | Haiku Project

As everyone has probably gathered from the first sentence of most of the other posts, GSoC 2011 is now over. I accomplished some of the goals I had for the last quarter, but was unable to get GCC2 support to work. The compiler is different enough to not work with the same options, and even after adding a GCC2 tool definition to kBuild I found that it was too old to compile some of the VirtualBox code. Various workarounds I tried for this proved unhelpful, so the additions will currently only compile and run on a GCC4 or GCC4 hybrid Haiku.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/scgtrp/2011-09-05_vbox_guest_additions_slightly_late_final_progress_report/
