How do I install Virtualbox in antiX? I get an error when trying to download it from the repo.

try svmi in the smxi package, though the non-free virtualbox needs to be downloaded and installed manually, the free version installs fine.

Thanks h2, I'll have to do a little research on smxi as I am not too familiar with it. I'm running pretty much stock (other than customization of the look) antiX M7.2, anything I should be aware of before I run it?

svmi is a standalone script, but you can also start it via smxi.

It's a virtual machine installer thing. Simple.

If you don't have it, as root:

cd /usr/local/bin; wget -Nc techpatterns.com/svmi;chmod +x svmi; svmi

and it will give you the options.

The virtualbox repo was closed. You have to download the Debian binary from Sun.

I would assume that is another option. I can still use the svmi script?

to get the non ose version you have to get it directly from sun, but the ose version is readily installable.
