Hello,

years ago (probably 2010/2011) I installed Gentoo as a Virtualbox guest using this wiki page: en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Virtualbox_Guest. Now it is gone and I can't find a replacement. I still have a printout of the old wiki page but that probably won't work any more or should it?

That wiki was sort of on again off again available. Not sure what's up with it now. The official wiki has a page for virtualbox:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/VirtualBox

For running as a guest, you mostly want the "Linux Guests" and "Running" sections.

I'm not sure about the "Running" section - I rather think that's for the host. But, more important, the first part of the old page (Installation, with compile options and kernel configuration) didn't make it to the new one.
I'll try to use the old instructions and ask here as necessary.

Thank you,
Sibylle
