Thread: Install Oracle VirtualBox on OpenSUSE 12.1

    Question Install Oracle VirtualBox on OpenSUSE 12.1

    Hi guys,

    I wanted to install Oracle Virtualbox on OpenSUSE specifically 12.1
    VirtualBox Downloads

    however as i look at the site above, it only has a Oracle VirtualBox for OpenSUSE 11.4
    openSUSE 11.4 VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.8_75467_openSUSE114-1.i586.rpm

    Can I still install this on my 12.1 box?
    also how do I install it? haven't install yet packages outside OpenSUSE's default Software Repository

    How do I install it through Yast(Graphical)?
    How do I install it through the terminal?

    Thanks a lot guys

    Long Live Linux!!!

    just like any other program: do NOT go to the maker's site (like you
    might have done with that old fashioned operating system of last century!)

    instead
    -open YaST Software Management
    -in the search box type VirtualBox or virtualbox
    -press the "Search" button
    -when the list on the right comes up, find [code]
    virtualbox VirtualBox is an Emulator (version number) [code]
    -single left click the empty box to the left of the package name
    -YaST _may_ present a list of other packages (and/or add check marks)
    that _must_ be installed to support VirtualBox: Accept the list or VBox
    will NOT work
    -press the "Accept" button at the lower right
    -let it run, do NOT try to abort it or stop it
    -if you get an error report that here *without* killing YaST or shutting
    down.
    -after VirtualBox has been installed read its documentation thoroughly
    as you set it up to fix your needs

    Hi, I just installed VBox as your instruction, and I see the interface for creating VM is not same 'VBoxGtk'. Would there be a problem installing the .RPM from the original download url suggested on there site:

    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...racle_vbox.asc -O- | rpm --import -

    or where is the original interface? Thanks!...
