Can't install Virtual Box from Synaptic

Postby Stevenwrig » Fri Apr 18, 2014 5:17 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to install VirtualBox from the Synaptic Package Manager. When I click the link for VirtualBox-4.0 then the items comes up as a broken link (background is Red) and I can't install.

Any ideas? I'd really like to have it installed in such a fashion that VB gets all of the updates when I perform my monthly updates.

Thanks chaps (and chap-esses)

sometimes it does pay to get the software directly from the source:

- the update feature also seems to work better.
