Well, the only reason I need a multilib slack64-13.1 install is to
build virtualbox for my slack64-13.1 machine. So, I went to the
hassle of installing slack64-13.1 via qemu, adding multilib support,
installed acpica and fired up the worst nightmare so far, which
failed miserably:


(insert cursing here)

I didn't know what exactly caused it, so what I changed was: 

a) ditched -smp 2 parameter in "qemu-system-x86_64 -smp 2 -cpu
core2duo -m 512 -redir tcp:22000::22 -hda slackware64.13.1.img"

b) increased available memory to 700 mb

c) went from numjobs=3 to just 1

and it worked

(quoting http://slackheads.org/builds/virtualbox-ose/README.txt)

build params:

groupadd -g 215 vboxusers

"ARCH=x86_64 sh virtualbox-ose.SlackBuild" in a full stock
slack64-13.1 install with multilib support in a qemu build
environment on an E5200.

qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu core2duo  -m 700 -redir tcp:22000::22 \
                   -hda slackware64.13.1.img

installed packages:
 - acpica

time to compile:

well, I'd be glad to save folks the trouble I went through, so I put
all that stuff on here:


signed packages for slack64-13.1 are in the pkg dirs, key is in

Next time I buy a CPU I'm gonna check for hardware virtualization for
