    Thank you for posting the inxi output.


    OK, my previous statement was outdated, since I had installed on the other antiX 17.4.1 system running on athlon XP hardware a more recent version meanwhile. (I was sure I had, but had to recollect the details, searching for the notes I took about the installation.)
    So here you are another one, functioning, proven to work rock stable and with long uptime, and maybe someone can profit from the data.

    sudo apt-get install virtualbox
    The most recent version present on antiX installs,
    but in the end of installation it fails to modprobe vboxdrv:
    dmesg |tail shows:

    	[3457526.728164] vboxdrv: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.
    	[3457526.740810] vboxdrv: Found 1 processor cores
    	[3457526.741396] vboxdrv: Requires SSE2 (cpuid(0).EDX=0x383f9ff)

    Specific to athlon thunderbird and XP is that it does support SSE1 only.

    According to Oracle database
    SSE2 is required starting with VirtualBox version 5.2.10 and version 5.1.24.

    The latest Version NOT requiring SSE2 (and running with SSE1 only) is 5.2.8, which can be found at
    Following files are required:
    First check whether the files were downloaded without errors:
    shasum -a 256 -c SHA256SUMS

    apt-get --purge autoremove virtualbox
    to remove the nonfunctional virtualbox version from the system

    apt-get install /<path>/virtualbox-5.2_5.2.8-121009~Debian~stretch_i386.deb
    apt-get install libsdl-ttf2.0-0
    modprobe vboxdrv

    Add yourself (any user) to group “vboxuser”.

    In case you have existing virtual machines you need to register them, e.G. your existing XP box:
    registervm '/<path>/WinXP.vbox'

    Before the guest will be able to start you may need to add privileges for the folders containing .vbox and .vdi files as well as for the files itself. (I belive it was necessary to alow “read”, “write” and “execution” for “user” and “root” at least, but maybe “other” had to get the privileges also to make it work.)

    And you’ll need to add the extension-pack from above from within virtualbox (entry is to be found in virtualbox menu “settings”)

    Since I needed an LPT from within Guest system port I had to follow the steps described in this guidance in Virtualbox-Forums
    In short:
    To activate Virtualbox LPT port support for a virtual machine use

    VBoxManage modifyvm "Name_of_VM" --lptmode1 "/dev/parport2"
    VBoxManage modifyvm "Name_of_VM" --lpt1 0x378 7

    once. Adjust the settings according to your needs. And before each start of virtualbox make sure lp module is unloaded:
    sudo rmmod lp
    Otherwise no Virtual machine configured as described above will be able to fire up at all.
    After this the Parallelport is present and usable in the virtual machine, but it might be necessary to configure it manually inside the guest (only in case it is not autodetected).
    After virtualbox is powered down you might want to
    ‘modprobe lp’
    again in order to make the port available to antiX again.
