Virtualbox installation on Fedora Linux This short howto will guide a Fedora user with a steps on howto install VirtualBox on a Fedora linux system.

First, become a root and install all required prerequisites:

root@server01[~]# yum install SDL make automake autoconf gcc kernel-devel dkms

Download RPM binary package of Virtualbox:

root@server01[~]# wget ... 1.i686.rpm

Next install a downloaded RPM package with rpm command:

root@server01[~]# rpm -i VirtualBox-3.2-3.2.12_68302_fedora14-1.i686.rpm

Recompile vboxdrv modules:

root@server01[~]# /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

Make your self belong to a group vboxusers:

root@server01[~]# usermod -G vboxusers -a username

Now, you need to log out and log in to apply the above group changes. Once you log in into the system again you should have a working version of Virtualbox on your Fedora Linux.

Thank you
