Hi,

i want to install Virtualbox in CLDM15.12. I found something in BLOG how to do that - but this entry is 1 year old.

Can i do so without braking my System ?

Hello Harald,
Update your system and install a fresh Virtualbox.

cl-update
emerge virtualbox

After installation, to run the program you need to load more modules. As far as I can remember, enough to load ‘vboxdrv’.

modprobe vboxdrv

Later, when the system boots, the modules will be loaded from the file ‘/etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf’.
