Description Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2015-04-11 05:21:53 UTC

This fixes the long-standing problem that VirtualBox hangs on the file dialog in KDE.

See discussion here: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-security/2013-August/007120.html

This is fixed by setting environment variable KDE_FORK_SLAVES=1. This patch makes VBox to always do this, making user experience more comfortable.
Comment 1 Bernhard Froehlich freebsd_committer 2015-05-09 09:47:38 UTC
Why should USE_OPENSSL be needed for that?
Comment 2 Yuri Victorovich freebsd_committer 2015-05-09 10:01:13 UTC
Sorry, OPENSSL patch got mixed in by mistake from my local ports tree.

But otherwise, it is just missing.

Updated patch

I updated the patch.

Please also add USE_OPENSSL=yes because VirtualBox does use openssl and doesn't declare this as a dependency.
