Default How to install virtualbox on FreeBSD ?

Hello again everybody,

On my PcBSD partition all I had to install was one file, virtualbox-4.0.6-amd64.pbi and virtualbox have been working just fine. Now I want to try it manually and thanks to 8.2 release I have manage to install FreeBSD 8.2-AMD-64 with Gnome 2.32.1 on another partition and now trying to learn how to install virtualbox with debugging features. I notice there are three virtualboxs and Fresh Ports tells me how to install virtualbox-ose-kmod-4.0.8.tbz and a older versions of virtualbox 3.0.51.r22902_3. But no where on the INTERNET does it indicate to install all three files. Most of them talk only about Windows-7 and virtualbox.

If I want virtualbox 64bit with debug logging options, would I have to install all three of these packages?




If so, in what order?

Thanks in advance
