I'm interested how you got past this:

Code: Select all

Checking for 32-bit support: 
  Cannot compile 32-bit applications (missing headers and/or libraries)!
I was told it therefore wasn't possible currently and thus gave up. :D

To compile 32 bit applications (as virtualbox is) you need the multilib compilers.

From here ----> http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/13.0/ download these following packages:
- gcc-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- gcc-g++-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- gcc-gfortran-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- gcc-gnat-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- gcc-java-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- gcc-objc-4.3.3_multilib-x86_64-4alien.txz
- glibc-2.9_multilib-x86_64-3alien.txz
- glibc-i18n-2.9_multilib-x86_64-3alien.txz
- glibc-profile-2.9_multilib-x86_64-3alien.txz
- glibc-solibs-2.9_multilib-x86_64-3alien.txz
- glibc-zoneinfo-2.9_multilib-noarch-3alien.txz

then put all of them in a directory called for example "multilib" and then upgrade your gcc/glibc suite (as root):

Code: Select all

cd /home/your_user/multilib
upgradepkg --install-new *.txz
