Re: Problems installing virtual box
Apparently you did not realize there is a "Virtualisation" forum where questions/answers for this belong http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=308
How did you install virtualbox and what version are you running. I installed it in 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 using the instructions for "Debian-based Linux distributions" at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads (which adds it to repositories) when it was still 4.2.4. It recently automatically updated itself to 4.2.6 with Update Manager during routine Ubuntu updates.
Although, I probably already had dkms installed, so nvidia video drivers could update automatically for new kernels.
Did you add your username to vboxusers group?
Did you also install the VirtualBox Extension Pack from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads (maybe that is required to access USB CD/DVD)?
