    Default Virtualbox ?

    I just installed Virtualbox from the repositories using 'Install Software'.

    Clicked on the newly created Icon and nothing happens.

    I'm running 64 bit 11.1 - does anyone have advice ? Am I missing something obvious here ?

    I always prefer the PUEL version from virtualbox.org rather than the OSE one in the openSUSE repo, less hassles.

    Package /home/stan/Desktop/VirtualBox-2.2.2_46594_openSUSE111-1.x86_64.rpm could not be installed.

    Details:
    Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: Failed dependencies:
    pam-devel is needed by VirtualBox-2.2.2_46594_openSUSE111-1.x86_64

    Sigh...

    But for the PUEL version you will need the kernel-source, gcc and make packages installed because it will need to build a kernel module.

    Remember that you will need to run /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup after any kernel updates, after the new kernel is booted up.

    Also you'll need to change permissions on /usr/lib/virtualbox/Virtualbox & VBoxHeadless & VBoxSDL with chmod 4511 if i'm not wrong.
    How does a linux geek make love??

    - rtfm; unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; zip; sleep;

    Thanks for all the input. I appreciate it.

    OpenSolaris is installing now, when will I have to rebuild the kernel ?

    Should be installed with the correct permissions out of the package.

    You don't need to rebuild the kernel, you just need to rebuild the VirtualBox kernel module IF there are any kernel updates.
