Installing VirtualBox in Porteus

Post#1 by Wnderer » 27 Feb 2016, 15:17

I'm rebuilding and old laptop and I want to install Porteus as the main OS and run windows 98 in VirtualBox. Porteus is not listed as a supported OS on the VirtualBox site. Is it possible to install VirtualBox in Porteus? If so, are there any special requirements?

Porteus 3.1 is working as an host. Porteus is slackware.

panel menu > system > virtualbox builder

When creating a new guest (windows, etc.) select linux and other linux.

For additional questions, do not hesitate.
