Post How to get VirtualBox for Bodhi?


Hey Profis, newbie here!

I'm trying to get the VirtualBox for Distro Bodhi 5 but all possibilities lead to error/failures even as root.

Only from here :

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

Those that means there's no VirtualBox for Bodhi or there is another way?

Thank you!

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: Currently OpenMandriva. Previously openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, among others over the years.

You can try the "All distributions" option (in the same link you posted), you'll need the development packages for the Linux kernel installed, along with gcc.

You need to post these "errors/failures", use CODE tags when you do.

Thank you for the reply!

It also didn't work, may be i were doing it wrong. However, totally forgot about it, it works with only the following code :

sudo apt-get install virtualbox

Which means the whole package with extra package (like SPM) has been installed?

It means you installed the virtualbox package, which installs Virtualbox. In future, you need to actually post any error messages, we can't guess.
