I've installed getvirtualbox from the repo on several computers that didn't have VirtualBox on it, and when run, it ran flawlessly, installing VB with USB support -- kudos to all involved.
QUESTION though -- For a computer that already has VB OSE installed, does it need to be uninstalled via Synaptic BEFORE running the getvirtualbox routine? ==> think I just saw the answer to this question when I went to Synaptic to see what would be installed and uninstalled prior to actually applying the changes. Looks like everything will be taken care of here.
ANOTHER QUESTION -- For subsequent upgrades in VB, will a new getvirtualbox rev come out.... similar to how GetOpenOffice works now? Can we then just run it again, not having to uninstall the previous version?
Again, thanks to all involved. What a great idea.
