VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range
of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a
Linux system.
This package provides the source code for the virtualbox guest addition kernel
modules. The virtualbox-guest-utils package is also required in order to
make use of these modules. Kernel sources or headers are required to compile
these modules.
The source is placed under /usr/src, and after decompression it can
be built to produce a virtualbox-guest-modules-_KVERS_ providing
"virtualbox-guest-modules" package.
