I installed VBox in RC1 via synaptic yesterday - a choice of 4.1.30, 4.2.22 or 4.3.8. I chose 4.3.8 and the install went fine. I had to install the extpack separately (I had that downloaded from a previous installation) and I had to add my user to the vboxusers group. Other than that, VBox works fine using my long-running XP VM.chrispop99 wrote:The version of Virtual Box that Synaptic will install is 4.2.16. Sorry, I've forgotten what problem you were having, but I've just installed VB, together with the recommends, and the guest additions (10 files in all), and have successfully created a virtual XP machine.
