Oracle's VBox 4.1.x do not ship with VBoxPython module for Lion. (only for Leo and Snow Leo)

You must take Jeremy's compiled "VBoxPython2_7.so" module and put to:
/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/

Download it from:
http://qumble.org/downloads/VBoxPython2_7.so
-or-
https://rcpt.yousendit.com/1319224516/0 ... 3462b7d772

become root:
$ sudo su -

FOR PROGRAMMERS:

------

To compile VBoxPython2_7.so yourself (if you need to), you have to patch VBox sources:

http://her.gr.distfiles.macports.org/mi ... h-sdk.diff

and then compile VBox using the following procedure:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Mac%20O ... structions

If you need to compile for a compiled version of Python (as a Framework), you need to edit src/libs/xpcom18a4/python/gen_python_deps.py
and replace:

prefixes = ['/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr', '/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk/usr', '/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/usr', '/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.7.sdk/usr']

by the following (if you compile Python 2.7):

prefixes = ['/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/']

------

UPDATE: Oracle ships this with future ver of VBox:
