OMV 4.x omv-extras Virtualbox installation problem.

  • Installing the linux-headers package isn't needed anymore and the omv-extras testing repo never is needed.

  • When you use the proxmox kernel, you need to remove the Debian kernels. Hence the button to do that in omv-extras. This will allow the linux-headers-amd64 package to be downloaded and virtualbox should work. My test system isn't magic.

    Thanks! This squared me away and VirtualBox is now up and running. Now to get some images running :).

  • So the bottom line is this:

    • Install OpenMediaVault
    • install Proxmox Kernel.
    • Then use Proxmox Kernel.
    • Install VirtualBox ?

    Or is there anything else needed ?
    Do we need to remove the other kernels ?

    You have to install omv-extras.

    My quoted post right above yours answers this question.

  • so no need for doing the proxmox way

    The proxmox kernel is not a bad option. I run it on all of my OMV systems and I don't even use virtualbox or zfs. It is more stable than the backports kernel in my opinion.
