Virtualbox Won't Install? [Solved]

Post by xjonquilx » Fri May 18, 2012 5:48

I'm using Sabayon 8 with Gnome 3.2.1. I followed all the steps in this guide:

http://wiki.sabayon.org/index.php?title ... Virtualbox

Virtualbox is showing up in Sulfur as being installed, yet it doesn't show in the programs list and issuing the command in Terminal or when I press alt f2 just gives me "command not found".

Could my old Virtualbox profile in /home be causing this?

Running equo install virtualbox-bin without the --nodeps worked. I've got Virtualbox going now. :)

the command is: VirtualBox
watch the capitals....
without the capitals, but just plain
virtualbox
the program won't run
already modified the wiki page for this,
so they won't mistaken anymore...
