Where is Virtualbox?

#1 Postby Fargo » Sun Mar 04, 2012 7:42 pm

I've been working on my new system all weekend and now that I'm ready for final installs of everything I can't find virtualbox in the repos. Is it gone for some reason? Or am I blind?

When was it removed from the repos. I swear I installed it recently directly from the repos.

Weird. I swear I did not have vbox in my repos. I followed the steps in the wiki to do the direct download and did it that way. However, after doing that, I unchecked the direct download and the other vbox entries were there. Thats really weird that they did not show at first but then did later. Yes, I did refresh after unchecking the direct download repo. Thanks for the help. It was a little extra work but I guess thats ok since I got the Oracle version instead of the OSE version. I might need the extra USB capabilities. That is if thats still not in the OSE edition. Now I'll give it a try and see if it works. Wish me luck.

Strange!
But I guess the Oracle version may be better.
Good luck!

I have been playing with VB for the past week - quite amazing how powerful and simple to work with it is.

I always install the latest version from the VirtualBox site. Sometimes I get to install the next to latest version because of problems with the latest and greatest.
