Hi,

Whenever I install Virtualbox I always just pick-up the latest files from Virtualbox.org
Using the LL2 "Install Additional Software" does that use the latest version.?

Thanks - David

Using the "Install Additional Software" feature in LL2/64 the version of Virtualbox installed is 4.3.10. The most current version as of this writing is 4.3.12 but this version isn't available yet on the download page for *buntu 14.04 based distros. See here for downloads https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads. I imagine adding the Oracle/virtualbox repository would allow the most current version to be installed but I haven't tested this yet.

Hi,

Thanks... the reason this came up...
I booted a laptop with Zorin8, soon to be LL2
It's software updater is offering 4.3.12-93733

On your link it is showing at the very top "14.04 ("Trusty Tahr")  i386 |  AMD64"

Thanks... David

Thanks, Wirezfree. Good catch. I'll edit the original post to correct for this.

Linux Lite uses the Ubuntu repos to deliver VirtualBox, the newest version should be sourced from the VB website should you need one of the new features or bug fixes.

Hi Valtam & Scott(0),

Thanks...
I guess maybe the Zorin S/W updater contains the Virtual Box Repo.?
