Hello,

How exactly are you trying to run and/or install the RPM?

Cheers,

Josh

Can you use a software management tool instead of an rpm?

You should just be able to install VirtualBox from the command line like so:
Code:
yum install VirtualBox
Note that you need to run that as root.

Cheers,

Josh
