    Virtual box 4.0 install on Maverick

    I'm having trouble getting virtual box working on Maverick.

    I installed virtualbox-ose from synaptic package manager and it failed to capture the mouse properly so, after following some threads that said there were some problems with 10-10 and the OSE version I downloaded the i386 debian package from the virtualbox site.

    I have removed the OSE version using synaptic.

    When I open the debian package with Software manger I get an error and the install button is greyed-out. The full message is:
    ======================
    Breaks existing package 'virtualbox-guest-additions' that conflict: 'virtualbox'. But the '/tmp/virtualbox-4.0_4.0.4_4.0-70112-Ubunto-maverick_i386.deb' provides it via 'virtualbox'
    ======================

    Where am I going wrong?

    Thanks.
