    • Sorry I didn't wrote the complete command, I thought you knew how dpkg works.
      So, you must write the full file name :
      dpkg -i virtualbox-5.0_5.0.2-102096~Debian~wheezy_amd64.deb virtualbox-extpack-installer_5.0.2_all.deb phpvirtualbox_5.0-1_all.deb openmediavault-virtualbox_1.4_all.deb
    • ok, ok :) so installing worked but I'm back for good - nothing changed.

      But there was a error in removing virtualbox-5 in the first place and so I guess the fresh install wasn't that fresh. I'll try again later...

      ------
      It worked. I had to launch the purge command for virtualbox-5.0 twice.
      Thank you!

    • I'm having the same install problem and am getting this error:

      Source Code

      1. ​The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      2. virtualbox-5.0 : Depends: libqt4-network (>= 4:4.5.3) but it is not going to be installed


      When I try to install libqt4-network, I get this:

      3. Depends: libqtdbus4 (= 4:4.8.2+dfsg-11) but it is not going to be installed


      Any suggestions?

    • Nice way to help people...

      It was already said that this is not recommended to upgrade from testing packages, but for people like me with a windows 10 client, RDP only works with virtualbox 5.
      I successfully upgraded with testing packages and everything works (I'm a linux user for more than 10 years now, I know how to do these things...).

      It should remove virtualbox 4 if you did not. Did you purge all the virtualbox 4 related packages ?
      I don't remember if I had this problem.
      For information, I'm running the 3.16 kernel, and my system si up to date (Debian 7.9) : apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade


      Yes, I removed/purged vbox4. I'm on the same versions as you.

      I just went through the process again and it worked this time. No idea what I did differently. Very interesting.

    • Hi out there,

      when i followed throughout this procedure, i managed to installed the mentioned packeages. I deleted those two files in /etc/default and touched one back.

      After reboot an trying to start vbox-service via omv i get:

      Source Code

      What can i do to resolv this problem.
      Does anyone know how long may we have to wait for an updated omv-extra\virtualbox-pack?

      regards

    • Hi,

      You shouldn't have done this, these two files in /etc/default MUST NOT be deleted they are created at the very first installation of virtualbox.
      As I said, to get them back you have to delete the vbox user and vboxusers group, and remove /tmp/.vbox-vbox-ipc/. Then reinstall virtualbox.

      Next time you read a topic, go to the end before doing anything, it will save you time.
    • I use vb5_install.sh scrip to install virtualbox 5.02 and works fine for several weeks.

      some idea a bout update of the plugging so other users can install virtualBox as pluging and not using shell?.

    • I've mentioned this before but you have to purge virtualbox 4.3 before installing virtualbox 5.0. Allowing updates of the plugin will never do this. So, I don't know how to change the plugin to fix the issue. It would really need to be fixed in the virtualbox 5.0 packages to allow upgrading from 4.3.
