Call for Testers: VirtualBox 4.0.6

The FreeBSD VirtualBox porters team is looking for testers for the latest version of VirtualBox.

PC-BSD users can test the 32-bit or 64-bit PBI (thanks to Ken Moore, Kris Moore, and Jesse Smith for creating these).

FreeBSD users can download a tarball of the 7.4 and 8.2 32-bit and 64-bit ports.

Details about the changes in this version and the checksums for the FreeBSD ports can be found in the initial announcement. If you test the port or PBI, please post your feedback on either the freebsd-emulation list or the pbi-dev list.

    A new PBI should be available shortly that hopefully fixes these issues. I’ll post when it is available. Thanks for the feedback!

    I don’t have any issues in compiling/running VBOX 4.0.6, I have FreebSD 8.2 STABLE AMD64.
