Virtual Box 4.0.2. released

      1 Kommentar zu Virtual Box 4.0.2. released

Eine neue Version vom beliebten Virtualisierer ist im Netz aufgetaucht. Im Prinzip schon ein “must have” für Ubuntu User die ab und zu auch noch ein anderes OS nebenher laufen haben. Eine typische Zweitinstallation auf eine gesonderte Partition mit Bootloader mache ich schon lange nicht mehr. Ein wenig RAM sollte aber für einen störungsfreien Betrieb eingeplant werden.
Im wesentlichen handelt es sich hier um Updates und Fehlerbeseitigungen. Viel Spass beim Virtualisieren.
Ein Update geht wie immer schnell über den Paketmanager oder manuell über das deb paket.
für 10.10. Ubuntu sind folgende Sachen nötig.

deb maverick contrib

Der key

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -


sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.0

This is a maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added:
