X86 virtualization solution - base binaries
  20 reviews

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system.

This package provides the binaries for VirtualBox. Either the virtualbox-dkms or the virtualbox-source package is also required in order to compile the kernel modules needed for virtualbox. A graphical user interface for VirtualBox is provided by the package virtualbox-qt.

Solid software. Used it for 5 years on windows, and 2 on linux now, without much drama. Recent versions are quite refined, although proper 3d acceleration just isn't there yet, so VMware player would be beter for software that extensively uses the graphics card.

Works fine but it's closed source and Oracle has a less-than-stellar security patching history. Will be moving to Qemu-KVM which is open source and tailored for Linux.

I had some video bugs but overall it's a great program.

Severely hobbled by no autostart scripts (and I imagine a host of other things, pun intended), need to install the orig from Oracle if you want that stuff to work :(

Solution de virtualisation stable et simple d'accès. Parfait même si ce n'est pas la dernière version disponible.

Works great but you really should download virtual-qt for the gui to get the most out of it.

VirtualBox works fine. Have my old Windows Installation Running in it. Unfortunatly the Version in the Repository does not work with kernel 4.8 so one has to install it from oracle..

I can't find the app after installation, had to install virtualbox-qt (And now impossible to uninstall this app, because along with it will be deleted *-qt, really bad)

Great, easy in use and powerful, but check out also gnome-boxes - even faster deployment, even easier use.
