Install VirtualBox

Post#1 by Olaf » 30 Nov 2018, 14:16

Hi all,

on my USB Porteus 32 bit install I successfully build VirtualBox and the guest additions.

However I found these modules already built for the SSD 64 bit install on http://ftp.vim.org/ftp/os/Linux/distr/p ... .0/kernel/

It is enough to download and activate them or it is a must to rebuild VirtualBox as I did in the 32 bit version?

Thanks.

So what happened when you downloaded it and activated it?

Hi Ed_P,

nothing happened yet... Because I haven't downloaded anything from the link, just found the modules and I was curious if it would work.

BTW, I have some more questions and would like to know if it is ok to open a topic for each one or just a post with all?

Well, the quickest way to find out if the module will work for you is to … :happy62: I'm in Windows at this point so I can't answer the question.

As for opening topics, there is no charge for opening topics and topics related to specific points makes finding them by others easier imho. If a topic goes too astray there are mods who will break it apart to keep the topic pure. So, it's kinda up to you but I would lean toward multiple topics.

Hi all,

just to say that I haven't downloaded the modules from the link above.

Did it with System tools->VBox builder and all went easy and smooth. A couple of minutes and got VBox/guest additions working plus tested it with Porteus xfce/kde 64 bit desktops, gparted iso 32 bit and lubuntu 18 64 bit. All working surprisingly fine.
