Virtualbox on CentOS 6 
Well, it is time to leave Ubuntu behind. Not only has the UI become so odd that students are inadvertently deleting files, but the new user interface is - to say the least - intrusive, as well as unpredictable.

Most of my associates are running either Red Hat or CentOS. -Now we will be doing so, as well.

Here is how to install Virtualbox on CentOS 6:


cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb ... albox.repo
yum update
yum install binutils qt gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel dkms
yum install VirtualBox-4.3
service vboxdrv setup


That wget path is h-t-t-p://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/rhel/virtualbox.repo

Worked great on my machine. See the related link (below) for the source of the above scrips, as well as for other platforms.
