Installing Virtualbox

Note: this applies only for Trisquel 6.

Trisquel Menu > Accessories > Terminal

Copy and paste each one of these lines into the terminal one at a time and hit enter at the end of each pasted line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove virtualbox virtualbox-ose --purge
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose
sudo aptitude install linux-generic
sudo adduser $USER vboxusers
After you have run these lines in terminal log out and log back in.

Virtualbox is not included in Trisquel 7.0 as the newer versions (from 4.2 on) depend on the non-free open watcom compiler. You might be interested in using e.g. KVM.
