Fedora does not support Virtualbox at all. But that package works
anyway. The user that provides them is not a volunteer. And if it did
not work it would not install.

This has gone on so long That I forget just who asked about what in this
thread.

Someone in this thread was asking about VM's. *After* you install the
rpm and *after* you install the Guest-additions you make a blank VM.

pick the distribution and the Arch for a p reconfigured setup up or
'write your own'.

Think of this VM as a *real computer* and put the disk (configuration)
in the drive and boot it and install.

You guys are making this much, much more difficult than it is.
