Whilst I tend to use Virt-Manager for my Virtualization needs, numerous users choose Oracle’s offering of VirtualBox.
Especially users that maybe coming from Windows.
Firstly VirtualBox need’s a few packages installed before we start the main installation.
[alert-note]Please su into root or use sudo[/alert-note]
yum install kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms
Add Oracle’s Repository File
Change into Yums repo directory
then create the new repository file
Edit the newly created file and copy and paste the following text and save the file.
[virtualbox] name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch - VirtualBox baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/fedora/$releasever/$basearch enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc
Now all we need to do is install VirtualBox-4.3 by doing the following
yum install VirtualBox-4.3
VirtualBox-4.3 will now install. All you need to do is now spin up a new VM of your choosing, have fun!
