Maybe someone can help me with this...
I had a relatively fresh installation of Mint 64, Deb edition. I had originally installed VirtualBox from the software manager. I got the out-of-date msg from VB and updated to VB 4.2.2 (I think.) This was a couple of months ago. I installed that version "over" the original one by using the Deb package manager.
Last night, I got another update msg and I did the same: downloaded VB 4.2.6 and used the Deb package manager. Everything seemed fine.
Until I ran VB. The VB Manager came up but it froze. I received an error message, but the actual message was not drawn on the screen.
Then, I thought I'd remove it completely and install it again. I used synaptic and removed EVERYTHING that had VB in it.
Now when I use the VB in the repos (I think it's 4.1.18???) it seems to be working fine but it needs a kernel. The 4.2.6 version still freezes.
Any suggestions would be appreciated by this humble noob.
Thank you in advance for your time.
