One modification is needed.
In between the server is stuck and the download is temporarily stopped. Then the script goes absent. it is out from the screen, not minimized. (it is running closed in the background). Then an error comes out saying it has checksum errors.
Correcting the problem i directly downloaded the file using JDownloader. and i have the 55 MB file separately. The script uses the /tmp folder to download the .run file. I copied the downloaded file to the tmp folder and ran the script again, but it deleted and restarted again. Luckily i still have the original downloaded file in the home folder.
What i'm trying to say is, now i installed manually and it finished without errors but doesn't run because it needs to add 'usb' user. since this has to be done by the script what shall i do now? i have a stupid broadband 3G connection and it goes well upto the 90 % mark then goes for lunch :'(. after much trying i directly downloaded using JD.
Can i do something here?
PS- is this version a paid type? non-ose means not free?

Doesn't work because they have different python and rpm version than PCLinuxOS.
I think we need to do a package like getopenoffice...
#su to root mode
# download VirtualBox
#make file executable
chmod a+x VirtualBox-3.2.2-62298-Linux_x86.run
# run the installer
# add users to group vboxusers
SYSUSERS=`cat /etc/passwd | grep "/bin/bash" |grep "[0-9][0-9][0-9]" |cut -d: -f1`
for idx in $SYSUSERS
do INP1= usermod -a -G vboxusers,usb $idx; done
# create menu entry for PCLinuxOS
Name=Oracle VM VirtualBox
Comment=Run several virtual systems on a single host computer
