    Install VirtualBox


    I have been having trouble installing VirtualBox. I have been using the software manager, but I am not selecting the right options. I got it to install but when I tried to install a guest OS it said that the kernal was missing. Can anyone tell me what options need to be selected for a standard Vbox not the simple GUI. I am using open suse 12.1 with kde GUI.

    Or point me to some good documentation. I can't find any that specifically show what to install with the software manager.

    thanks David

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    On the VirtualBox (Oracle) download page, they only provide Suse 10 or 11 installers. How are you trying to install it?
