This shouldn't be true. Multilib is a requirement to *build* Virtualbox, but it should *run* just fine without it.

The multilib is a requirement to build, not to run.

I am puzzled. How can they propose a .run for amd64? Do you know if they ship 32-bit libs in the bundle?

PS I didn't see the answers from Heinz and Sbastien before posting. I see, now.

Thanks a lot for the pre-built packages! I'm new to the whole current thing and was having problems getting it to compile (it kept telling me it found GCC 5.3 but was expecting something else). May I ask how you got around the problem or was it an issue you never ran in to?

I never ran into such a problem.

Another detail: my packages are built against libvpx.

@phenixia2003, ppr:kut: thanks for the clarification. Didn't know there was only a build dep.

Maybe I am missing something, but I cannot get VirtualBox to start a machine. It tells me that I don't have the kernel modules installed, but I did install the package just fine. Is there something else I need to do after the package is installed?

You need to install virtualbox-kernel and to set up VirtualBox as indicated in the README.
