    Hi! Tried to install one by one but I get this error reports saying it's already installed and latest verion.

    Code:
    root@localhost ~]# yum install libGL.so.1
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
     * addons: centos.mirror.aussiehq.net.au
     * base: centos.mirror.aussiehq.net.au
     * extras: centos.mirror.aussiehq.net.au
     * updates: centos.mirror.aussiehq.net.au
    Setting up Install Process
    Package mesa-libGL-6.5.1-7.7.el5.i386 already installed and latest version
    Nothing to do

    Maybe a dumb question but is your system's architecture x64 or x32?

    Hello Dapper Dan,

    Thank you.

    Not a dumb question really. The output (in red) says I "64x2", but honestly, i'm not pretty sure also.

    Try this one.

    Link

    I've been able to get the i386 version of this to install on my machines without incident. Hopefully this AMD64 version will work just as good for you.

    Use yum instead of rpm to install the virtualbox package. It will deal with the dependencies better for you.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Now here's a really dumb question Two actually...

    Dapper Dan, I downloaded the link and got a .run file. Am not familiar how to install

    Rubberman, may I ask how yo use "yum" to install please.

    I tried to install the i386 and here's what I got:

    Code:

    Go to the directory where you downloaded the VirtualBox rpm file, then enter the command (as root): yum install name.rpm
    Obviously (I hope), 'name.rpm' is the real VirtualBox rpm filename. That's what I do. In fact, when I download a new version of VBox, I do the same thing, except use the 'yum update' command instead of 'yum install'.

    Thanks. Here is my output. What would you suggest I do plsease?
    Do you think the ones I highlighted in red would help?

     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
     You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                            package-cleanup --dupes
                            rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
    The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.
    I tried to install one by one :

    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# yum install libcrypto.so.7
    Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
     * addons: mirror.averse.net

    No package libcrypto.so.7 available.

    These are the names of libraries, not the packages that they are found in. Try installing the packages, and then retry installing the VirtualBox rpm file:

    crypto-utils
    fuse-cryptofs
    m2crypto
    python-crypto
    gcc
    gcc-c++
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
