Project ID: 4462


For testing latest versions of VirtualBox for Fedora and epel7. The project starts on Fedora 23 but is available for latest branches .

Warning: Time to time use dnf distro-sync to be sure that you are using last version, copr is also a place where in test my builds , so I often do builds without bump the release.

Installation Instructions

dnf copr enable sergiomb/vboxfor23

on epel7

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ wget

In host (the master):

dnf install VirtualBox kernel-devel-$(uname -r) akmod-VirtualBox akmods systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service dmesg | grep -i vbox

or In a vm guest system to install Fedora VirtualBox-guest-additions please do:

dnf install VirtualBox-guest-additions kernel-devel-$(uname -r) akmods systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service dmesg | grep -i vbox systemctl restart vboxservice

in dmesg you should see kernel modules loaded:

dmesg | grep -i vbox [ 2870.556703] vboxdrv: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel [ 2870.565213] vboxdrv: Found 2 processor cores [ 2870.571315] vboxdrv: fAsync=0 offMin=0x1c2 offMax=0xa5f [ 2870.671515] vboxdrv: TSC mode is Synchronous, tentative frequency 3000795689 Hz [ 2870.671519] vboxdrv: Successfully loaded version 5.0.6_ (interface 0x00240000) [ 2870.671946] VBoxNetFlt: Successfully started.
