Re: i install virtualbox from mint repos, but its a old version

The repositories being behind with new versions of software is not unique to Mint. Every distro I've ever tried was that way. It's that way to keep the system stable AFAIK. ok but is the same version 2.2, the 2.2.4 is a maintenance release of the 2.2 series, the diferencies between 2.2.0 and 2.2.4 ...
