    As root:
    Code:
    aptitude install virtualbox-ose virtualbox-ose-modules-`uname -r | sed 's,.*-,,'` && invoke-rc.d udev reload && modprobe vboxdrv
    Add your user account to the vboxusers group:
    Code:
    adduser yourusername vboxusers
    , logout and login again before starting virtualbox. To load
    vboxdrv at system startup, "editor /etc/default/virtualbox-ose" and set LOAD_VBOXDRV_MODULE to 1

    I am lazy I just use the svmix script from smxi sgfxi svmi rbxi :: home page

     Virtual Machine Options
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    For most new or average users, VirtualBox is a simple, clean install,
    and you'll have your vbox up and running almost immediately.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Vmware options are basic, and only support vmware player.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    For convenience, this top level menu also includes the options to
    rebuild vmware/vbox kernel modules if that's all you need to do.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    1 - virtualbox-options Downloads, installs, rebuild kernel module, vbox tools, for
        both virtualbox non-ose and virtualbox-ose.
    2 - vmware-options Downloads, installs, rebuild kernel module, and a few other things.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    3 - build-vbox-module-ose Installs vbox OSE module, updates modules.
        NOTE: System must be fully dist-upgraded for this to work right before you run this!
    4 - build-vbox-module-non-ose Will rebuild existing virtualbox non ose kernel module.
    5 - build-vmplayer-module Rebuilds vmplayer kernel module. Requires vmplayer v. 2.5.x or greater.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    6 - quit
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Please type the appropriate number and hit enter
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    1) virtualbox-options	      4) build-vbox-module-non-ose
    2) vmware-options	      5) build-vmplayer-module
    3) build-vbox-module-ose      6) quit
