Virtualbox dependencies

Postby walrus_t on Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:22 pm

Hi everyone!

I'm using LMDE and can't install Virtualbox... any advice? Thanks a lot!

Here's the message in Synaptic:

E: virtualbox: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
E: virtualbox-dkms: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
E: virtualbox-qt: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured

I suggest you read https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch02.html#idp11344384 first, which lists prerequisites for installing VirtualBox. Use the versions and notes for Debian Squeeze/Wheezy.
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM16 Mate 64-bit
Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 13.10 64-bit, Xubuntu Trusty Tahr 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit
