Re: Virtual Box install problem on FC10

I like your enthusiasm, guys, but it's not that easy... what was this "can't create COM object" msg when I installed from RPMFusion?!

The easiest way to do it is to install the package from sun site with PAE header and uninstall KVM...

1. Make sure rpmfusion repos are installed on system
2. If you have PAE kernel, install kernel headers
 # yum -y install kernel-PAE-devel
3. Install VirtualBox with
 # yum -y install VirtualBox-OSE
4. Reboot or
 # service akmods restart
to build kernel module and
 # modprobe vboxdrv
to load it

5. Run Virtualbox by
 $ VirtualBox
