    v128 v129  
    3030VM apps use a program called "vboxwrapper" that connects
    3131the BOINC client to !VirtualBox.
    32 See the [https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Vboxwrapper_release_notes vboxwrapper release notes].

    3433=== Packaging options ===
     
    236235This causes the BOINC client to copy them to and from the '''slots/x/shared/''' directory.

     237== Premade vboxwrapper executables ==

     253== Premade Linux VM Images ==
     254
     255These VM images were built using the above instructions for creating VM images.
     256They contain Debian 4.0, without GCC or any build tools installed.
     257They contain the example startup script.

     261In most cases, you can use these VM images with no modifications.
     262If your application uses libraries not on the VM images,
     263you can add them as follows:
     264
     265 * Run !VirtualBox, and open the VM image
     266 * Hit CTRL-C when see "BOINC VM starting" in the console window
     267 * Install whatever you want (can use '''apt-get install''' to
     268   install Debian packages).
     269 * when you're done, type
     270{{{
     271shutdown -hP 0
     272}}}
     273
     274The VM image now has the additional libraries.
     275Rename it to avoid confusion with the original version.
