virtualbox-bin in Gentoo

Some non-Linux-dork posts are in the pipe, but today I had issues getting VirtualBox up and running on Gentoo. Here’s some proper install instructions to work around Bug 283617. I’ll get to fixing the ebuild later this weekend.

emerge virtualbox-bin
chmod 4750 /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxNetAdpCtl
chmod 4510 /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSDL /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxHeadless /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox
gpasswd -a youruser vboxusers

After a logout/login, VirtualBox should appear in your Applications menu, and can be run from the command line with VirtualBox.
