VirtualBox on Oracle Linux 5.6


I am trying to install VirtualBox on Oracle Linux 5.6.

It states that I need the following libraries to install:
libcrypto.so.6()(64bit)
libpython2.4.so.1.0()(64bit)
libssl.so.6()(64bit)
python(abi)

Where do I find these libraries and how do I install them?

Sounds like you are running a 32bit os. You probably want to reinstall 64bit instead.

I believe 32bit virtual box exists but assuming you do have a 64bit box the reinstall is probably your best option in the long run.

Thanks for the heads up. I am actually running Oracle Linux 6.1 64bit so I had the wrong rpm. This is my first post and I appreciate the quick response.
