Virtual box Installation.

I’ve used Yast to search for Virtual Box but it didn’t return a result. How do I go about installing it. I found an old thread but the link was broken.

Is Virtual Box the best hypervisor to use with openSuse or is there a generally accepted better application I should consider?:\

Hi
Sure kvm/qemu :wink:

It is too vague. Virtualbox is provided by default repositories.

You just install it.

zypper install virtualbox

Is Virtual Box the best hypervisor to use with openSuse

“Best” is in the eyes of beholder. I am fine with QEMU.

Thanks for the reply. Why do you prefer QEMU over Virtual Box? I’ve only every used Virtual Box on a Windows OS host. Never tried anything else but wanted one running on Leap 15.4 host OS.

As an aside I have an old PC knocking about with Windows on it. It’s an i5 so not too bad. I was thinking of setting that up with a type 1 hypervisor on it just for testing out a few different OS’s. I’d like to look at Kali for penetration testing my network. I guess I could still do that as a type 2 on openSuse though.
