• VirtualBox 5 Installation


    This is probably a rookie question… I have been using Antergos less than 6 months, and am coming from years of Suse and Ubuntu use. One of the things that attracted me to Antergos is the way that new packages are available very quickly without the need to upgrade or clean install the latest version of the OS.

    That said, VirtualBox 5 was released a few days ago.

    I assume this varies based on the package, but typically, roughly how long before software repositories update the new releases? I’d like to try out VirtualBox 5 :)

    I put this in the wrong category. WOuld you kindly move this topic to Application Installation or something like that? Didn’t realize I was in the OS Installation category.

    Sorry 'bout that.

    Virtualbox kernel modules always need adaptation to the new kernel, so that is why you have to wait a few days between updates.

    Having said that, I do not know if version 5 also has new changes that need adaptation.

    Cheers!
