Hi Lonnie,

the minimal preparations are:

  cd genode

  make -C ports     prepare PKG=virtualbox
  make -C libports  prepare PKG="libc x86emu"
  make -C base-nova prepare

The x86emu package is solely needed for the VESA graphics driver.

You will also need to copy an ISO image named "test.iso" into your build
directory's 'bin/' before executing 'make run/virtualbox'. Please take a
look at 'ports/run/' to look behind the scenes.
