  1. #1

    Default Newbie experiencing 12.1 challenge installing virtualbox

    Having come from Ubuntu 12.04 and happy I made journey except for understanding this virtual box issue. If there is a step by step please advise.
    I went to Oracle downloaded the 12.1, went to add programs and obviously I either need dependent-ices or I need start over. I have the Oracle icon on desktop
    but nothing happens on execution. Thanks

    Or just uninstall what you have and apply this method: The fastest and easiest way to install Oracle VirtualBox!. It will install all dependencies, then install and configure the latest Oracle VirtualBox (including extension pack).

    But if you're on 12.1, just replace
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar  http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/please_try_again/openSUSE_12.2/ PTA
    with
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar  http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/please_try_again/openSUSE_12.1/  PTA
    to install the correct repo.
