Hello.  I noticed you sent your mail twice, once to libvir-list and once

Are you sure that the libvirt you installed was built with vbox support
compiled in?

What command are you using when you get this message?  Are you
specifying an explicit URI, such as 'virsh -c vbox:///... list'?  This
particular message makes it sound like you forgot the -c argument, and
thus are using the default URI which happened to be qemu:///system
instead of your desired vbox connection.

This is a publicly-archived mailing list, where such disclaimers are
unenforceable and considered poor netiquette.  You might want to
consider sending mail from a personal account that doesn't have this
junk slammed on by your employer.
