emulators/virtualbox41 - New Port Because VirtualBox 4.2.16 Cannot Boot OS X VMs

Reported by: rmstonecipher@… Owned by: royliu@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.3
Keywords: Cc: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)
Port: virtualbox41


Please refer to upstream tickets linked in
In that and other upstream tickets users recommended using VirtualBox 4.1 for OS X VMs on OS X hosts.
I would propose creating a virtualbox41 port but do not understand the various patches in the current virtualbox port well enough to modify them to suit VirtualBox 4.1.
This port may conflict with the virtualbox port since both require kernel modules.
The current 4.1 series release of VirtualBox is 4.1.26.

This was supposed to have been fixed in VirtualBox 4.3, so we should just update the port to that version.

4.1 is long unsupported, so it really is not ideal to create a virtualbox41 port. I think this ticket should either be rephrased as a bug for the virtualbox port, or just merged into/closed as duplicate of #50622 which is trying to get 5.1.x or later working.
